The world is about to find out what Calgarians already know, because it’s just been announced that Mayor Naheed Nenshi has just been shortlisted for the title of the world’s best mayor.

The 2014 World Mayor Prize is awarded by the City Mayors Foundation and if Nenshi is able to beat out the other 25 mayors in January, he’ll be the first Canadian mayor to do so!

Since Mayor Nenshi surprised everyone when he won his way into City Hall in 2010, thousands of people have been enjoying his unique way of interacting with both his constituents and politicians alike.

If the City Mayors Foundation is looking for further proof, I’ve gathered of some his best moments!

He makes sure we only have the best to eat:


He can’t believe that he has to tell us things:

He’s really bad at keeping secrets:
