Apparently our disease had crossed the border to the North.  For the Canadians on the forum...is the below statement really deserving of losing your job over it?

The longtime broadcaster went on a rant about the lack of poppies he had seen leading up to Remembrance Day. In Canada, the flowers are traditionally worn in honor of veterans.

“I live in Mississauga,” Cherry said. “Nobody wears, very few people, wear a poppy. Downtown Toronto, forget it. Downtown Toronto nobody wears a poppy.

“Now you go to the small cities and you know, the rows on rows. You people love — you, that come here, whatever it is — you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey. At least you could pay a couple bucks for a poppy or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. These guys paid the biggest price.

Just amazing.  All he is saying is wear a Poppy...it's about the least you can do.
