What a disgrace.
If there was any doubt, it is now clear that a massive double-standard exists in our country:
Those who stand up for Canadian values and Canadian Patriotism get thrown under the bus and destroyed, while those who denigrate our nation, denigrate our pastimes, and insult what makes Canada strong, get away with it every time.
So, Don Cherry is fired for saying people should wear Poppies, yet Jess Allen is getting away with her disgusting and bigoted remarks.
CTV has issued a statement, making clear they won’t fire Allen. That statement can be read below:
“CTV’s The Social is based on opinion and debate about current issues, and we often hear from viewers who don’t agree with some of the perspectives on the show.
However, Jessica Allen’s comments about hockey have generated an extraordinary response. We’ve been touched by the stories we’ve heard from Canadians everywhere, including families from Humboldt, about what the game means to them. That matters to us.
We would like to apologize to everyone who was offended by the remarks, and let you know your feedback sparked much debate and introspection at The Social and CTV. We won’t restrict our hosts from offering their opinions on an opinion show, but we’ll always listen to viewers when they offer theirs.”
This is a total joke.
So, it’s okay for Allen to outrage millions yet her opinion won’t be ‘restricted,’ yet Cherry stands up for Remembrance Day and says people should wear poppies and gets fired?
What the hell is this BS?
