The Grey Cup wagers between Manitoba and Ontario’s major politicians


Manitoba’s Premier has made a football-based bet with Ontario Premier Doug Ford ahead of the Grey Cup on Sunday.

With the Winnipeg Blue Bombers set to face the Toronto Argonauts in the 109th Grey Cup, Premier Heather Stefanson took to Twitter Friday morning to call out her Ontario-based counterpart.

Stefanson said if the Bombers beat the Argos in Sunday’s game, Ford must don the team’s blue and gold jersey. Stefanson said she’d sport an Argos uniform if the results are reversed.

Ford responded with a message agreeing to the wager.

Winnipeg Mayor Scott Gillingham and Toronto Mayor John Tory are also making a friendly wager for the game.

As outlined on Twitter, the losing team’s corresponding mayor must raise the other team’s flag at their city hall.

Both Mayors are also making a charity donation to local food banks, with the loser of the bet making a second donation.

If Winnipeg wins, Tory will make a donation to Harvest Manitoba. If Toronto wins, Gillingham will make a donation to Daily Bread Food Bank.

Kickoff for the Grey Cup is Sunday at 5:00 p.m. CT.
