The event was organized in the aftermath of Sportsnet's decision to fire Cherry for his comments on "Coach's Corner" during last Saturday's "Hockey Night in Canada." Many felt Cherry was critical of immigrants for not wearing poppies. Cherry has insisted he was not criticizing immigrants.

During the protest, some motorists honked in support of the effort. A couple Toronto Police cruisers sat across the road.

Some curious Rogers employees took pictures from the second-floor food court overlooking the building entrance.
