Canada’s men beat their USA 1-0 in the semi-finals in Sochi, Russia last month while the women’s team stormed back to see off the US 3-2 and snatch gold.
“Hey, @connect2canada! Look forward to delivering two freshly brewed cases of WH beer on Monday for @pmharper from POTUS. On behalf of POTUS, enjoy and congrats on the Canadian victory (this time around)! Look forward to a rematch,” the White House National Security Council told the Canadian Embassy on Twitter. “I haven’t received it yet, but in fairness to President Obama, he’s lost bets to me before, and he’s always paid up before. I’m sure he will,” Harper told TSN 1050 Radio in Toronto.
