Canucks kick off the best-of-seven series tonight against the Calgary Flames as NHL’s Stanley Cup Playoffs get underway.


With this being the first playoff run the Flames have made while Mayor Naheed Nenshi has been in office, him and Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson decided to bet on it. On Monday, Nenshi took to Twitter to find the perfect wager for this series, and here’s the bet:

  • Losing city’s mayor must wear winning city’s jersey to City Council
  • Losing city’s mayor makes a donation to the winning city’s food bank of $5 for every winning team goal scored in the series
  • Losing city’s mayor recites a short poem about the winning city, written by the winning city’s mayor
