Doug Ford honours bet with Brian Pallister, wears Bombers jersey, but won’t change provincial boundaries

Ontario Premier Doug Ford honoured his bet with Manitoba counterpart Brian Pallister.

Prior to the Grey Cup between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Pallister threw out a fun bet on the matchup.

Pallister would bring Ford a Bombers jersey to wear and vice versa in the Ontario legislature depending on which team won.

“To sweeten the pot a little, since Hamilton is the odds on favourite, if Winnipeg wins, I expect you to throw in all the territory west of Thunder Bay and it’ll join Manitoba,” Pallister said.

Ford accepted the challenge by posting a video of fans doing Oskee Wee Wee chant.

After Winnipeg upset the heavily favoured Tiger-Cats from Hamilton, Ford had a Bombers jersey on in Toronto while welcoming the premiers from around the country to council.

While I’m certainly happy for the people of Manitoba, especially Chris Matthew who can now wear pants again, nothing, not even a Blue Bombers win, could convince me to hand over a square inch of Ontario,” Ford told Postmedia’s Brian Lilley.
