    From the above mentioned article (gh's post) ...

    “Downtown Toronto, forget it, downtown Toronto, nobody wears a poppy,” Cherry said. “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 can pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada."

    I know nothing about his history or style, but the comment quoted in the article did not seem incendiary or over the top. Maybe in bad taste, but then again there is almost always a back story, which I simply do not know.
