At the end of Ontario Premier Doug Ford's reopening plan announcement on May 20, he filled Ontarians in on his request to bet on the Montreal Canadiens/Toronto Maple Leafs series, which started last night.\nFord said he asked Quebec Premier François Legault to bet on the first Habs/Leafs playoff game in a friendly switch of hockey jerseys for the winning and losing team.\nEditor's Choice: Legault Is Ending Curfew On The Same Week As His Birthday\nHowever, Ford said Legault refused to bet on the Habs.\n"I called my buddy François Legault [...] he's a great guy, we're good pals, I think the world of the guy — and we usually put a little wager [...] every single game," he said.\nFord said he texted Legault that he would wear a Canadiens shirt if the Leafs lost the series, and Legault would have to wear a Leafs shirt if the Canadiens lost.\n"This is the only time my buddy François won't bet me now. What does that tell you, folks," Ford said.\nLegault Changes His Mind\nOK @fordnation. J’accepte le pari. Canadiens en 6!— François Legault (@francoislegault) May 21, 2021\nAfter the Canadiens’ 2-1 victory in game one of the Habs/Leafs series, Legault seemed motivated to bet on Montreal’s favourites, tweeting at Ford, “OK, @fordnation. I accept the bet. Canadiens in 6!”\nWhile we appreciate the pro-Habs sentiment, Premier Legault, that's not really how bets work.\nThere’s been no word from Ford yet on whether he's still up for the bet.
