Everybody in Canada should wear a poppy to honour our fallen soldiers.”Cherry has been a national institution for decades, hosting Coach’s Corner alongside Ron MacLean since 1986. He made his pro-military stance clear throughout the interview with Warmington, while refusing to address immigrants that were disturbed by his rant.“I speak the truth and I walk the walk,” Cherry said. “I have visited the bases of the troops, been to Afghanistan with our brave soldiers at Christmas, been to cemeteries of our fallen around the world and honoured our fallen troops on Coach’s Corner.”Sportsnet released a statement Sunday, saying the network had spoke to Cherry about his remarks. The network released another ineffectual statement on Monday upon Cherry's dismissal.�Cherry believed that being a decent human being that avoided bigotry on the air somehow equated to censorship.“To keep my job, I cannot be turned into a tamed robot,” Cherry said.The broadcaster did leave a message for his fans, some of whom are apparently outraged that bigotry no longer is acceptable by a major broadcasting partner.“I want to thank everyone who has watched Coach’s Corner over the last 35 years,” Cherry said.“Remember to wear your poppy to honour our fallen soldiers … Thumbs up.”Read more...�Permalink�|�Email this�|�Linking�Blogs�|�Comments http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ National security officials objected to stopping Ukraine aid https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/11/11/national-security-officials-objected-to-stopping-ukraine-aid/23858593/ https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/11/11/national-security-officials-objected-to-stopping-ukraine-aid/23858593/ Mon, 11 Nov 2019 23:11:29 UTC at AOL Filed under: News, Politics, CongressWASHINGTON (AP) — The view among the national security officials was unanimous: Military aid to Ukraine should not be stopped.
