June 10, 2019

Washington, D.C. – U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today announced that they have placed a friendly wager on the National Basketball Association Championship series between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.  The winner of the wager will receive a supply of local delicacies from their opponent’s home region.  The Speaker has wagered a selection of San Francisco’s Ghirardelli chocolate, California wine and a selection of California almonds and walnuts while the Prime Minister has put a basket of locally-made goods from across Canada on the line.  Game 5 is tonight in Toronto.

“The Raptors are making history and they aren’t done yet.  We’re going all the way, Canada.  Ghirardelli chocolates and a glass of California wine are going to pair nicely with the Raptors’ first NBA title,” said Prime Minister Trudeau.  “We the North.”

“The only thing sweeter than watching Golden State once again become world champions is doing so while enjoying a selection of Canada’s finest,” said Speaker Pelosi.  “I am proud to be part of Dub Nation!”
