The network apparently has a problem with Cherry’s remarks, yet has no problem being sponsored by Communist China-controlled Huawei.
Sportsnet has fired Don Cherry.
The move follow’s Cherry’s remarks on the importance of wearing a poppy.
Here is the statement issued by Sportsnet:

Cherry had faced criticism over remarks in which he chastised some people for not wearing a poppy.
Yet, as I said on Twitter, the vast silent majority of Canadians will agree with Cherry’s remarks:
“The vast silent majority of Canadians will agree with what Don Cherry said. Canada’s elites fail to realize how many Canadians want to hear a message of Patriotism, even if delivered aggressively.”
“Lots of people who were fine with Justin Trudeau wearing blackface are all of sudden ‘outraged’ over Don Cherry saying people should wear poppies.”
Rogers is also apparently fine with letting Communist-China controlled Huawei sponsor Hockey Night in Canada, which is an absolute disgrace:
“Instead of Rogers Sportsnet apologizing for Don Cherry, they should apologize for still allowing Communist China controlled Huawei to be a sponsor of Hockey Night in Canada.”
“Notice how there’s ‘politically-correct’ anger against Don Cherry, yet not a shred of that same anger towards Communist China’s continued detention of two innocent Canadian Citizens. That’s ‘post-nationalism’ at work: Broken priorities & no strength to confront true threats.”
The move to fire Cherry – a Canadian icon – is a disgrace, and Sportsnet has revealed themselves to be weak and cowardly in the face of politically-correct outrage.
What a sad joke this is. Canada has a PM who got away with wearing blackface, yet Cherry loses his job for calling on people to wear a poppy and honour our troops.
