Get serious. We all know what he means when he says he "sees immigrants".
YES he meant "immigrants". that's it. you are reading racism into it. i suspect you know very little about don cherry. in the 80's 90's and 00's he was quite famous for decrying the growing prominence of (white) europeans in north american hockey.
there is no secret he likes "old fashioned canadian boys". he's a nationalist for sure. he's likely quite opposed to high levels of immigration. as are more than 50% of canadians.
so he's in the majority there. you are in the minority.
