Hockey Night in Canada is still owned by the CBC but it is then licensed to Rogers/Sportsnet to broadcast until the year 2025 which is when Roger's deal with the NHL expires

So basically Sportsnet pays for the rights to broadcast

I would like to state for the record that this is probably the biggest controversy in Canada right now.

I actually like Don Cherry, I've liked most of his commentary for a long time. I don't like what he said here, and the examples Higgy gave of "worse" things are actually some of the things I don't like about him. I didn't expect him to come back this season but was glad he did. If anything, I'm coming from a place of disappointment in the man.

As you may know blackface is notorious because of the American Minstrel shows from the 1800's where whites would dress in blackface and make fun of black people in extremely racist ways, that would then also lead to violence against black people. This is the origins and reason why blackface is so offensive. But there really is no historical racist counterpart with brownface, where white people would dress as Hispanics or Arabs and make fun of them. Its just not a thing although people of course tend to conflate the two.

now try telling that to someone with a straight face when it is this inappropriate, and sends that message, the historic background info is not super relevant imo.

Brownface discussion is straight up whataboutism 101... nothing to do with Don Cherry. Stay on target!

Key differences between the Trudeau brownface and Don Cherry's remarks:

The brownface thing happened 20 years ago in a high school fundraiser thing, and Trudeau apologized.

The Don Cherry thing happened a couple weeks ago on national TV, Mr. Cherry doubled down on it and stated that he meant what he said, but worded it wrong.

Don Cherry said "You people...that come here...". People are fixating on the "You people" thing for some strange reason when the words "that come here" are the important ones. That makes his intention perfectly clear, however he worded it.

I agree with the others here that it's really just the latest instance where Mr. Cherry has gone over the line, but management basically said "enough is enough."

I also agree that it's a very good thing that this is the biggest Canadian controversy right now. I'm getting pretty tired of living in "interesting times".

Yep, and as usual in the 2010's, it's us vs them conversations all over the place.

I agree with all of this.

Cherry said a massive no no, then he doubled down on it, and thought he'd get away with it. The man has convictions, and he wants people to honour the traditions of where they are now. He actually said it about as well as you could, because it just targets all immigrants, but it was a bad thing to say in a country that is a cultural mosaic and not a melting pot. It was the icing on the cake of reasons he should have been fired and he pushed the limit a lot for a guy who only gets a few minutes of air time a week during the hockey season really.

Flipping the page a little...

Too bad the lady tv show host who called Hockey fans/players all bigoted mean spirited unintelligent violent bullies is getting off without even a slap on the wrist.

some quotes from her
Amid Don Cherry’s refusal to back down following controversial poppy comments which led to the end of his historic broadcasting career, former Maclean’s magazine editor Jessica Allen decided to attack not just Don Cherry, but rather the entire “altar of hockey” which Canada worships, going on to say that the “white boy” hockey players could have used their parents’ money to instead, travel the world.

“Maybe it’s because of where I grew up, and going to a couple different universities. In my mind, in my experience, who does. They all tended to be white boys, who weren’t very nice, they weren’t very thoughtful they were often bullies, their parents were able to afford to spend $5000 a year on minor hockey. You could do other things than spend time in an arena, you could go on a trip and learn about the world. See other things. The world is a big place, maybe get outside of that bubble.”
