Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray had to don a WHL Prince George Cougars hockey jersey Monday in recognition of his city losing to Prince George in the annual Canadian Blood Services Interior Drive For Life blood donation campaign.

Gray had to wear the Cougar’s jersey during Monday’s city council meeting. Despite collecting more units of blood here—1,168 to 901—Kelowna lost because the Prince George collected a bigger percentage based on its smaller population.

But Gray said he was happy to see an additional 131 donors were signed up here during the campaign.
