I have to say this comparison needs to stop. It isn't the same thing.

1) Trudeau didn't get a free pass, he lost his majority.

2) Trudeau did something stupid 20 years ago, meant no harm (still stupid), apologized when it came out, and his actions since those incidents 20 years ago have proven that hes anything but racist. Cherry made his comment on the job, and refused to apologize. If the Trudeau incident happened right now, I guarantee he would have to step down.

If I tell a customer off at work, I could get fired for it. If I told that person off 20 years ago, well before I worked that job... I can't get fired for it. My employer could only say "you better not do that here"

Don Cherry has been out of touch with the game for a while, and his comments have done nothing but create more division in the country. He needed to go.

Trudeau gave a sincere apology and admitted a horrible error in judgement.

Cherry could have apologized and apparently refused to. So huge, huge difference.

Canadians are very forgiving people. We would have accepted a sincere apology. I know I would have and I don't even really like him or think he should still be on the air.

The only thing I hate worse then racists, are two faced back stabbing butt kissers...which apparently there are plenty of in the world of sports broadcasters and journalists.

..What should Cherry apologize for ? For saying people who enjoy the freedom in Canada should be thankful and wear a poppy? Nothing in his comments were racist....People like to drop the race card when they don't like someone on the other side of the political spectrum ….. Trudeau lied about blackface and then apologized after the photos surfaced. Trudeau wasn't exactly a kid either at the time. …..I guess getting with the times means if your a man that feels like a woman then you are a woman ? I guess we are what we feel ? Truth is subjective ?

Don Cherry had the ____ to stand up to the bias media and not cave into peer pressure by apologizing for something that wasn't wrong, unlike his spineless counter part Ron that just says the trendy popular things. Huge huge difference....Cherry did nothing wrong. People should respect what veterans did for this country.

Canada has one day set aside to honour and remember our fallen soldiers, who gave up their lives so we could have ours. Sportsnet decide to highjack that very day with news of Don Cherry – so our veteran could be forgotten?

What an appalling act of disrespect to our veteran and their families by Sportsnet.

I just want to mention here that if Cherry had clarified that he was targeting EVERYONE that was not wearing a poppy, and not just attacking immigrants, none of this happens.
The six words that got him fired were ‘You people, you come over here,....’ If he had just said ‘you people that are not wearing poppies....’, life just carries on much as it has. I agree with his stance on poppies, but as soon as he pointed out(quite literally, while jabbing his finger at the camera) and specified immigrants, I knew he was toast.

Again nothing he said was rascist. YOUR the one saying he specified immigrants and reading into the way his finger is pointed. He doesn't target a race or religion. ....Again look at our Prime Minister that preaches intolerance and gets busted for wearing Blackface. Trudeau LITERALLY targeted a specific race and got off easy because he has shares the same views politically as the mainstream media
