“I’m confident our town will be able to come out and get the first doses as we walk down the home straight towards the end of June,” said Clark.

“I’m excited to do our part to encourage this and help people feel ready and motivated to go out and get vaccinated.”

Masters calls it a friendship match.

“Because everyone wins if we do our part to end COVID-19,” Masters said.

“Getting everyone vaccinated is the way to celebrate with friends and family, open up our economy, and high-five at rider games.”

Both mayors said they are accepting suggestions for the song that their losing counterpart will have to lip-sync.

Clark has a couple of songs that he’d love to see Masters Lipsync.

“An obvious song would be Running Back to Saskatoon, you know, it’s a popular song in our town and we always welcome Mayor Masters who are coming back here in Saskatoon,” said Clark.

“Feeling Good by The Sheepdogs has a good riff and I would love to see Mayor Masters smack away on that song too.”

Clark said there was a serious side to the challenge.

“We know the best protection people in the entire community can have is to get the maximum number of people vaccinated,” he said.

“Right now it is so important that we keep these appointments and go out and get vaccinated.”

The Saskatchewan Health Department will monitor initial doses in cities and announce a winner.
