I understand your point but unfortunately alot of those people have come from war torn countries and have their own way to grieve, remember and like us prefer to do it with their own. Thats not to say they don't have respect for our way of doing things but they dont have to participate in the way we may expect them too. I went to a gathering yesterday here in 100 Mile House and there were all kinds of cultures there and some with a poppy and some without, including us white Canadians, I just dont see it that way, I see all Canadians because were a multi cultural country and were all here to remember in our own way and seeing the multiculturalism is what makes us Canadian, a great country, considered one of the best in the world and I wouldn't have it any other way and unfortunately Don Cherry doesn't see it that way. I really loved Cherry, wished he could see my two young girls play hockey some day, they are great players, one is captain of her team. Unfortunately they are also mixed race and now I see that that might not be such a good idea considering one was born outside of Canada. Sad.
