NewsAlert: Sportsnet apologizes for Don Cherry’s anti-immigrant comments

TORONTO — Sportsnet has apologized for TV commentator Don Cherry’s remarks on Saturday night’s Coach’s Corner segment.

The network says Cherry’s remarks are discriminatory and offensive and do not represent Sportsnet’s values.

Cherry complained that he rarely sees people he believes to be new immigrants wearing poppies ahead of Remembrance Day.

More to come.
