SAD DAY for Calgary Flames fans (and members of the Flames, as evidenced by this photograph). Jarome Iginla said goodbye to the city on Thursday, adding that he wished “we had more success.” (Photos: Stuart Gradon/Calgary Herald)
The news you’ve been waiting for: Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says he’ll honour a Grey Cup wager even though his Toronto counterpart has been ordered out of office.
A judge ruled Monday that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford violated the city’s conflict of interest rules.
But Nenshi says “a bet is a bet is a bet,” so he plans to wear an Argos jersey at a city council meeting Tuesday.
He will also donate about $650 to the Toronto Food Bank. (Photos: Colleen De Neve/Postmedia News)

Horsin’ around, Part VI: This is Marty the Horse. The Royal York in Toronto said they wouldn’t let him in. It is part of CFL tradition for Stampeders fans to bring a horse in the lobby, but the hotel said it had “health concerns.” After fan outcry, the hotel staff relented and now Marty will be free to roam the lobby to his heart’s content at 2PM ET.
