Don Cherry tells 'left-wing kook' Americans to stay home
Hockey commentator not welcoming to Trump-dodgers
Americans threatening to move to Canada in the wake of Donald Trump's presidential victory are not welcome north of the border, outspoken hockey commentator Don Cherry suggested Wednesday.
The co-star of "Coach's Corner" took to Twitter late Wednesday morning to discourage any left-leaning U.S. citizens upset at the prospect of a Trump presidency from seeking refuge in Canada.
1) The left wing kook entertainers and the left wing weirdo’s in the media in the US have said if Trump wins the presidency they will move—@CoachsCornerCBC
2) to Canada. Please, we have enough of these type here now.—@CoachsCornerCBC
Cherry has made no secret of his right-leaning politics in the past.
He spoke at the inauguration of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford in December 2010. He wore a pink suit, saying his choice of attire was "for all the pinkos out there that ride bicycles and everything."
