The network confirmed the firing on Monday afternoon.
One of the most well-known personalities in hockey has been asked to step down from his role after 40 years on TV. At least you could pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that. "These fellas paid out for your way of lifetime that you take pleasure in in Canada, these men compensated the greatest value".
The National Hockey League, Sportsnet and co-host Ron MacLean have all issued statements condemning what Cherry said on the program.
MacLean also apologized on Twitter, calling Cherry's comments "hurtful and prejudiced", before adding that he should have handled himself differently. Don has been getting a little over the top but I'm sorry to see him go. Among his talking points, he commented on why female reporters didn't belong in locker rooms, expressed negative thoughts about European hockey players, blasted believers in climate change and talked about the benefits of fighting, despite the NHL's efforts to prevent concussions. Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie called Cherry's remarks "despicable" on Twitter.
The CBC said in a statement that even though Coach's Corner is filmed in its studio in the CBC building in Toronto, it is broadcast as part of a sub-licensing deal with Rogers Media.

Lata Mangeshkar Is Fine And Is Back Home
The Indian government had conferred the country's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna , on her in 2001. Her sister, Usha Mangeshkar informed PTI that the veteran singer is still in hospital and is recovering.
In 1989, when asked about then-Winnipeg Jets assistant coach Alpo Suhonen, Cherry said his name sounded like "dog food". If Don was against me, I felt I was doing something right.
According to the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council, the number of complaints about Cherry's remarks was so high that it ended up "exceeding the CBSC's technical processing capacities". And I'm not going to, and he says, wait a minute.
Cherry's comments about immigrants during his longstanding Coach's Corner segment of HNIC on Saturday, November 9 landed him in the hottest of all of the hot waters of his career.
"Don never said new (Canadians) and he never said immigrants", said Luba.
The CBC, which airs Hockey Night in Canada but no longer owns the rights to the program, said Monday it respected Sportsnet's decision. That's the big thing that I want to emphasize.
"Remember to wear your poppy to honour our fallen soldiers ..." "It certainly doesn't stand for what Sportsnet or Rogers represents".
Known for his outlandish suits and thumbs-up gesture, Cherry was liable to say anything during the popular first-intermission segment on Saturday nights. Mark had Don's home address, so I made a decision to give it a shot.
