Although to be sure, some of them did. There was also an all-Black construction battalion and a handful of Japanese soldiers. On top of that approximately 190,000 foreign-born males were not eligible to enlist because they were "un-naturalized" Canadians.

Yeah after 3 years of war. A total of 600,000 Canadians volunteered during WW1. An additional 120,000 were conscripted from 1917 on of which only 47,000 actually went overseas. Of course conscription might not have been necessary if the friggin' French weren't such whiny shits.



Christ dude, do you ever get anything right? Your attempt to re-write history is pathetic.


Cherry's message wasn't wrong. He probably could have phrased it a bit better but it wasn't some racist rant either as you panty wastes seem to think it is.

But ya know what's really interesting? A group of sub-moronic whiners got Cherry fired and yet just a month ago, the same perpetually outraged PC brigade re-elected a sexist dipshit for PM with a history of cultural appropriation and wearing Black-face.

You are YOU to tell us differently? Seriously guy?


Has nothing to do with Trump BTW so stop with the B.S.


JMHO



Ah crap - should read "who" are you to condemn or applaud...."

that wasn't the problem with that statement.

The problem was conflating someone who lost their job for promoting racism with someone who lost their job for protesting racism.

Do you wear a poppy?
Any of your "white," tribe buried in the fields of Flanders?
If they are, on which side?

Young men of all nationalities, mostly conscripted and forced to fight on pain of execution, then killed in battle 70-odd years ago; why would anyone now thinking about their deaths, care which side they were on? And what difference does a fake poppy make? Apparently it can mask a lack of tolerance for others.

Curious indeed.

And how pray, tell, was Don promoting racism? He was promoting wearing the poppy. Only an intellectually deficient leftard could jump to the "racism" conclusion". Like I said, maybe Don should have dressed all Bollywood and wore Black face. Then you dumb f*cks would want him to be Prime Minister.


So to sum up, the term "you people" is racist when referring to immigrants from everywhere but being a sexist and engaging in cultural appropriation and wearing black face are admirable qualities for a Prime Minister.


That about sum up your pathetically hypocritical point of view?

To be scrupulously fair (why not? ) I think he was expressing 'immigrantism' rather than promoting racism (although he may have been completely happy if promotion of racism resulted )

Whoever Da Coach was yapping about it was someone who you could look at and know who they were.

Just by looking.

And all his fans know who he was talking about

I think Don Cherry should have a show called, “Immigrants Corner”, then give the immigrants an opportunity to tell us how they are contributing to Canada.

I for one would like to understand why we hardly ever see a visible minority driving a domestic car??
If they are so great, why hasn’t our automotive industry flourished with the high Immigration levels, why are we supporting foreign designed cars ??

Uh oh.....................


I think your quote about 47,000 Cdn conscripts going over



seas dates from WW2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And it was only in the last 6 months of the European war that Cdn Zombies- conscripts actually reached the front lines!!!!!!!!!!!


WW2 PM LIE-beral Mackenzie King even campaigned on the



slogan :: "not necessarily conscription but conscription if necessary"!!!


LIE-berals DO LOVE those weasel word slogans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And in the end he was forced to start sending Zombies overseas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The first Zombies went into supply units and anti aircraft gun



batteries - meaning places where they would not be directly shot at!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But the endless infantry casualties eventually pulled about 10,000 Zombies into rifle companies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've noticed Ron MacLean has turned full Judas. Not only did he throw Cherry under a bus, but now he has turned into a social justice warrior. This is the guy who hosts that Small Town Hockey show on CBC/Rogers. I can't see him getting the same respect he had before this incident. In fact, I think he should have just quit with Don. Canadians would have judged him with integrity.

Instead, he proves he is a company man until the end, and wants to keep his paycheque at the end of the day. It will benefit him short-term, but Canada will always remember him for turning his on a friend that went to bat for him twice during contract disputes. Bobby Orr, a Canadian hero, with balls of steel, even went on record and defended Don.

As a wise man said "In Canada, we need more Bobby Orrs,but too many people are Ron MacLeans."

Judging by the way you talk about Western Canada, it sure would have been amusing to be a fly on the wall during some of your so-called "Tours of Duty." You don't strike me as a likable guy to begin with. From personal experience, most veterans who have served Canada are far less likely to badmouth any region in Canada, if they were brothers in battle. Certainly more so than the general population.

One wonders if you are who you say you are.
