It’s tradition for an NBA team to visit the White House after winning the NBA Finals. However, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson wants the Toronto Raptors to visit Parliament Hill in the nation’s capital.
Watson says the Raptors should visit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau so “Canada can congratulate you”.

“Hey @Raptors forget the White House for a victory lap” reads his tweet.
“Come to Ottawa and parliament hill so Canada can congratulate you!”
If the Toronto Raptors do in fact decide to make a trip to Ottawa instead of the White House, it would be a moment that Canadians would cherish for generations.
