CALGARY - Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says he'll honour a Grey Cup wager even though his Toronto counterpart has been ordered out of office.

A judge ruled Monday that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford violated the city's conflict of interest rules.

But Nenshi says "a bet is a bet is a bet," so he plans to wear an Argos jersey at a city council meeting Tuesday. He will also donate about $650 to the Toronto Food Bank.

Nenshi says he didn't want to act too quickly because he wants the Stampeders to know he's still their No. 1 fan.

Toronto beat Calgary 35-22 in Sunday's game.
