Mayor Jim Watson and the Sens Cyril Leeder in happier days.
Sometime next spring Mayor Jim Watson will offer a bet against his opposite number in the city of the team opposing the Ottawa Senators in the NHL playoffs.
No doubt the Ottawa bet will be something like Beavertails and if it is against Toronto, Mayor Rob Ford will no doubt serve up a large confection of crow.
The video above shows Sens head honcho Cyril Leeder accepting a plaque (when does this ever happen?) from the ceremonial mayor. One wonders if such an event occurs next year, if Leeder, a brilliant businessman and very nice person, will even show. Such has the relationship deteriorated between the mayor and the Ottawa Senators. That should never have been allowed to happen.
