No suit and tie for Horgan today.
After losing a bet to Minister of Mental Health and Addictions Judy Darcy,
Premier John Horgan will wear a New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse jersey in the legislative chamber.
Premier Horgan is a Victoria Shamrocks lacrosse team superfan and he bet Darcy that her home team, the Salmonbellies, would lose the Western Lacrosse Association finals to his favourites.
The stakes: the loser would wear the opposing team’s jersey in the legislature. A true spectacle of victory.
The Salmonbellies defeated the Shamrocks four games to one, closing out the best-of-seven series with a 13-11 victory on Sunday, Aug. 27. Now Premier Horgan will wear a Salmonbellies jersey in the legislature today to showcase his loss and Darcy’s team’s success.
