Don Cherry defended

[video via blazingcatfur]

See also Chris Selley's column:
... I think he’s actually a rather good reflection of a Canada that exists despite the fondest wishes of people like Ms. Lord. But he’s certainly no more insufferable than your loud, least-favourite uncle — and he comes with a mute button.
Good column - Selley is honest - even though, as is typical of many snotty liberal elitists, he doesn't like Cherry or, by extension, the Canada he reflects. While I appreciate Selley's honesty, I don't share his antipathy.  Don Cherry would be one of my most-favourite uncles.

I couldn't stand Cherry for years. His kind,caring and generous side become more apparent the more you watch/read/hear about him till the point of changing my opinion. I am now a Cherry fan accepting of the mans occasional crass side.

And I think his "crass side" is mostly part of his schtick.
