Celebrity millionaire W. Brett Wilson, a former Dragon's Den star and co-owner of the NHL's Nashville Predators, is at the centre of another controversy, this time accusing Calgary's mayor of playing "the race card" to win the last election.

Naheed Nenshi, who is of Ismaili Muslim descent, is the city's first Muslim mayor.

Wilson got involved in a heated exchange on Twitter Wednesday about the city's planned Green Line transit expansion — one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Calgary's History — trading sharp responses with people who told him the issue had already been settled after Calgary's 2017 municipal election.
