Some of you sound not only angry, but violently so.

I am sorry, but you are in the minority. Most Canadians (maybe not the enlightened ones on here, of course) love Don Cherry and what he stands for. Intsead of reading snippets of articles and casting gloom over every word out of his mouth without actually looking into why he says certain things, we dig deeper and try to see all sides, and respect the fact the guy just loves Canada (I know, crazy concept - one which perhaps eludes the younger generation who can't read more than a 100 character tweet).

If you feel as though I am wrong, I have statistics that speak to the contrary:

Yeah Don's the victim here.
