Don Cherry says people who believe in climate change are ‘cuckaloos’

Veteran hockey broadcaster Don Cherry is facing backlash after appearing to deny the existence of climate change and calling people who believe in the widely accepted phenomenon “cuckaloos.”

Cherry, 83, made the remarks to co-commentator Ron MacLean on Saturday night during the first intermission of the game between the Toronto Maple Leafsand Boston Bruins, a day after Ontario’s newest forecasting groundhog Wiarton Willie signalled six more weeks of winter.

MacLean tried to deflect the question, but Cherry insisted, “I’m just asking you, the cuckaloos are always saying there are warming trends — we’re freezing to death.”

Unsurprisingly, Cherry’s views were quickly picked up by Canadians, with many taking to social media to express their disapproval.

It’s not the first time that Cherry has suggested that cold weather disproves the existence of climate change, however.
