No mercy for Regina mayor in Grey Cup bet

MONTREAL — Montreal’s mayor is showing no mercy for his counterpart in Regina — who can expect an Alouettes jersey and a Montreal flag in the mail in the coming days.

MONTREAL — Montreal’s mayor is showing no mercy for his counterpart in Regina — who can expect an Alouettes jersey and a Montreal flag in the mail in the coming days.

Mayor Gerald Tremblay makes no apologies for Sunday’s shocking Grey Cup win by Montreal and he’s not about to waive conditions on the bet he made with Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco.

The pair agreed that the losing city’s mayor would don the winning team’s jersey and fly the flag at city hall.

They also agreed that the loser would purchase season tickets for the winning team and donate them to charity.

A Montreal spokesman says the ball is ultimately in Fiacco’s court — but he adds that the Alouettes swag is already en route to Regina.

Saskatchewan lost a historic heartbreaker by a single point after receiving a bizarre penalty for too many players on the field in the final play of Sunday’s championship football game.
