660 NEWS – An online petition to bring back Don Cherry has over 150,000 signatures.
A writeup on change.org says “Don Cherry is a Canadian icon and a symbol of the working class.”
“He may be politically incorrect, and may not have been as careful as he should have in his remarks, but his offense does not warrant firing.”
It goes on to say, “Sportsnet and CBC should not cave into a mob of liberals and twitter activists, and should immediately restore cherry to his job.”
As of late Tuesday night, the petition had just over 161,000 signatures.
