  Argonauts, Stampeders betting favourites for CFL division finals Argonauts, Stampeders betting favourites for CFL division finalsToronto closed out the regular-season schedule on a 5-2-0 straight-up (SU) run to take their first Eastern crown in four years and gain home-field advantage in Sunday afternoon’s Roughriders vs. Argonauts betting matchup at BMO Field.

Naheed Nenshi was sworn in as Calgary 's 36th mayor on October 25, 2010. He is a passionate Calgarian, an accomplished business professional, and a community leader with a solid track record of getting things done.

The 105th Grey Cup was played on November 26, 2017 between the Calgary Stampeders and the Toronto Argonauts at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, Ontario. In a re-match of the 100th Grey Cup , the Argos won the game 27–24, winning their 17th championship.

Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi donned a Toronto Argonauts jersey on Monday to live up to a Grey Cup bet he made with his Toronto counterpart John Tory.

The Calgary Stampeders lost 27-24 to Toronto in last Sunday’s CFL championship game in Ottawa.

The loss was a bitter pill for Nenshi, who had to pull on the Argos gear before a council meeting and recite a poem praising the winning team.

The poem ended with this humbling line for one of Calgary’s biggest Stampeders fan — “Now we have business to do and I must end this tale of woe, but I have to wrap it up by saying, `go Toronto Argos, go, go, go.’ ”

Nenshi is also making a contribution to Toronto’s food bank as part of his deal with Tory.
