    I suppose the real question is is CityNews an objective media organization or are they biased?

      Luca Doncic is on fire in the NBA right now. He is gifted and is white. Luca gets respect, support and high praise from black players and fans all over the NBA. If Luca was equally gifted black hockey player he would never never never be as respected or supported. As history has shown black Luca would be bullied, mocked, get called a monkey and never given the chance to truly show his full potential. That is reality....sad black reality.

            The powers and big companies behind hockey will go with the change . More money making opportunities and possibly more vicrories.

              I think they are a bit late with that. Before 1994 you guys had an opportunity to do that after Major League Baseball canceled their season. What did you guys do with your new commissioner Gary Betman (AN NBA DOPE HEAD PRODIDY OF DAVID STERN) do. He went on a lockout and it killed your minor chances of gaining new fans who were discussed with Baseball. That killed it. Then you guys had another lockout and canceled you’re whole season. So the missed that boat. Now they are spreading it a bit too late and made that sport a regional game worse than baseball. That’s what killed it for you.

            People keep mentioning Don as part of a racism problem. Nationalism doesn't imply racism. Many individuals of colour have Canadian family roots back to before the first World War. All Don says is he's for Canada first. That doesn't mean only white people.

              lol Canada first is a racist phrase referring to old stock Canadians. These bigots think anyone who earned their Canadian citizenship legally but weren't born on Canadian soil aren't equal to those who are. And their children despite legally being born on Canadian soil are dubbed anchor babies another racial slur. People like Cherry need to experience a public hanging so we can modify the behavior of his low IQ supporters.

              People don’t realized that Don Cherry just put the first nail in hockey’s coffin, a sport without populate base will eventually die, with that comment he pushed millions of potential hockey fan away.

                In the USA 🇺🇸 yes because you have MMA. Basketball 🏀. And Baseball. Along with the immigrants coming to cities like New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago and other areas Soccer has seen some growth. Where is Hockey 🏒.

                On a separate not without the racism you have had deadbeat commissioners before Gary Betman and the current commission Gary Betman who is a BASKETBALL GUY BEFORE DAVID STERN who is running the sport. And he has no vision other than a basketball vision which makes no sense.

                You also went to markets in the mid 1990’s that weren’t ready for hockey like Phoenix or Atlanta. Not good along with racism just kills it. Canada seems like it has its core fans but not a growth. You have that along with this past June with the Raptors winning the NBA title with a nice GM and that brought people together. Hockey may go the way of boxing 🥊. We shall see

                The problem is not that there aren't enough minorities. To me it's how ppl treat minorities who play the sport. Just look at all the awful tweets in the thumbnail of the video. Why the f does it matter who's playing? You all have a love for the sport just like the next guy. At the very least you can come together in the name of Hockey.

                  The idea of inclusiveness is absurd,so we should what make sure that the NHL has an equal number of every shade of the rainbow ridiculous and I don't see anyone calling for the same for the NFL or NBA.

                    This news network is getting more sad by the day. Why don't you see any East Indians in sports? because they aren't good athletes. Blacks are the best overall athletes and whites are the second best.

                      @parker Melville Blacks are exceptional athletes no doubt about that. How isn't basketball a gold standard or track and field? Btw most baseball players are white.

                      As a Latino male I played hockey and I saw the clasism, racism and bigotry in the locker room. This isn't new, and you see it anytime you go to a Leaf game etc .... this will only change once more minorities go professional and bring a change like soccer and basketball which are affordable sports for all newcomers.
