According to a breaking news report from former Sportsnet executive John Shannon it now appears as though National Hockey League legend Don Cherry has been fired from Hockey Night in Canada and the Rogers owned broadcast of the NHL. Thus far there are no other sources reporting this news but given Shannon's connections at Rogers from his time there it seems highly likely that his sources are on the money here.

We have 24hr news on cable and internet.
It's not a topic for a hockey game, people tune in for hockey related stuff.

Burke is most logical replacement for coaches corner, impo the best coach would not be at all interested that being Scotty Bowman.
It would bring class to first period break and the knowledge he has.

Today we remember those who paid the ultimate price so that we can enjoy the freedoms their deaths gave us. You may not believe or agree with others opinions but they have a right to express those sentiments. As other posters have pointed out the irony in this situation is palpable. HNIC has lost a 50+ year viewer. It is becoming evident that in today’s society the tail is wagging the dog. Just saying....

Meanwhile, in the UK:

THE BBC was accused of "insane" political correctness yesterday after it admitted that presenters on its international television news channel were banned from wearing Remembrance Day poppies.

BBC World presenters were not allowed to wear poppies because the symbol, worn to remember British and Commonwealth soldiers killed in war, was not recognised abroad and was therefore inappropriate for an international channel, the corporation said.

@theJagmeetSingh
"Don, let me introduce you to “#youpeople”

My great grandfather, Hira Singh, who served in WW1 & WW2 under the British.

We honour all who served."


Let's be real about this.
If you or your ancestors came to Canada, you worked hard to be apart of our Country, accepted our laws and customs, Don was not talking to you.
If you or your ancestors fought for our Country or your own, Don was not talking to you.
If you have not fought for any Country, but you honor those that do, Don was not talking to you.
IF you have come to this Country, demand immediate access to our hard earned and paid for services, demand we changed our Country to accommodate your beliefs and lifestyles and refuse to honor our beliefs, laws and history.....Don was most definitely talking to you.

The virtual signaling is getting out of control in this country. The left is looking at every turn and every word for an issue to champion to keep in the news. It absolutely amazes me that Cherry was fired for this yet Trudeau was given a pass for his black face incidents. For those Liberals on here I would love to here how you justify this?? How did Trudeau not also get fired for what he did in the climate that the left is fostering in our Country?
