Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz has made a friendly wager with his counterpart on the west coast in this Sunday’s Grey Cup game between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and BC Lions.
Katz and Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson have agreed that the losing mayor will stand at a major intersection in the opposing team’s city and declare the winning team as #1.
The wager also includes a $360 donation to KidSport Manitoba, as well as a basket of fine locally-made products.
“I know Winnipeggers will be happy to give Mayor Robertson a very warm welcome as they pass him on Portage and Main sporting a Bomber jersey,” Katz said in a statement.
Katz made a similar wager with Hamilton Mayor Bob Bratina prior to the Bombers defeating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 19-3 last weekend. Bratina donated $360 to KidSport Manitoba as a result of the loss.
