Don Cherry's rant on immigrants: "You people love … our way of life, you love our milk and honey, at least you could pay a couple of bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys pay for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada, these guys paid the biggest price." Cherry, a flamboyant and outspoken commentator on Hockey Night in Canada, has sometimes proven controversial for making political comments during Coach's Corner, having faced criticism for remarks regarding Canada's lack of support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, insinuating that only "Europeans and French guys" wore visors on their helmets, and denying climate change. On Remembrance Day, Cherry was fired by Sportsnet from Hockey Night in Canada after receiving significant criticism for comments suggesting Canadian immigrants benefit from the sacrifices of veterans but do not wear Remembrance Day poppies.
