On Tuesday night, Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi was the special guest on CBC’s Rick Mercer report.  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 four 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 a radical because I believe in the power of human beings to change their community.”
