Mayors back the Sens

Scotiabank will launch an online pledge Thursday May 31st, at 5 a.m. that asks Canadians to support the Ottawa Senators and bring the world's greatest trophy back to Canada — the nation where hockey was born. Toronto Mayor David Miller will be the first Canadian to sign the pledge, along with Vancouver Mayor Sam Sullivan and Calgary Mayor David Bronconnier.
I don't know about the fellows out west, but this is political suicide for Miller. More than a few Leafs fans are going to be looking to throw him in the harbour sometime tomorrow morning.

First an increase in the drinking tax (nodrinkingtax.ca) and now this betrayal? Miller's lost the plot and my vote. Does that idiot not realize that the Cup is in Canada year-round in his own city?

The last circle of hell is reserved for traitors Mr. Miller. Enjoy the flames ;)

I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't tend to judge politicians by their sporting preferences.

Miller can be a die hard Sens fan that despises the Leafs with a passion and it'll have absolutely no effect on my vote.
What he thinks of the Sens/Leafs is irrelevant in respect to his ability to do his job.

He's never shown any indication that he is anything other than a Leafs' fan.

It just highlights his poor decision making process that he would switch teams just for a photo-op. Sort of like Stephen Harper being a Leafs fan and then showing up in a sens jersey in the playoffs although that move was slightly less surprising considering the source.

At least he's not calling in the army to help Torontonians shovel their driveways.

Or making terrible TV commercials.

Now the question is: Would the politicians support the Sens if they had Doan as their captain? ;)

It doesn't matter if he does this. Leaf fans still write in "DOUGIE!!!!" for every single election anyway.

Or at least they would, if any of them voted.

Dougie would make an excellent mayor.
