End of the politician’s curse? Party leaders agree to avoid Jays games after string of losses Add to ...

Toronto Blue Jays fans can breathe a sigh of relief – the major party leaders have agreed not to attend any more games during the federal election campaign.

The Jays, who are battling the New York Yankees for top spot in the American League East Division, have not fared well when any of the party leaders have attended games.

The Jays lost games when Tom Mulcair, Stephen Harper and Justin Trudeau were in the stands.

After Friday’s loss while Trudeau was in attendance, Mulcair tweeted: “Don’t worry, fellow #BlueJays fans. JustinTrudeau, pmharper and I have a busy September and October lined up.”

Trudeau responded Saturday on Twitter saying, “Ok pmharper and thomasmulcair, let’s make a deal. No more #BlueJays games for us during the campaign.”

And Harper replied later Saturday, tweeting “JustinTrudeau ThomasMulcair I think we can all agree to watch the BlueJays from the safety of the campaign buses.”
