On Tuesday night, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi was the special guest on CBC’s Rick Mercer report. Â After being our mayor for five years now, you’d think we’d know everything about the man behind @nenshi, but you’d be wrong.
Here’s fourÂ things we learned about Mayor Nenshi:
1.His first rock concert was a Diana Ross concert!
Not my definition of rock concert, but hey, don’t knock Diana!
2. He skipped a lot of school…to attend school functions!
Of course he did. Is anyone really surprised by that?
3.He takes a lot of selfies with people!
“This may be my 50th selfie of the day, but it might be their first with the mayor.”
4. He’s a radical
“I’m aÂ radical because I believe in the power of human beings to change their community.”
