Cherry has been fired from Hockey Night in Canada and Sportsnet for saying during a broadcast that recent immigrants to Canada don’t wear poppies, and suggesting they therefore don’t support veterans. RedFM host Harjinder Thind walks us through the days when Don Cherry and his supporters opposed turbaned wearing Sikhs from sitting in the Legion Hall and how his firing was long time coming.
