Stratford, Ontario's mayor, Dan Mathieson, tells TMZ he'd LOVE it if Bieber hosted the wedding back home. First off, he's appealing to Justin's Canadian pride, but if that's not enough ... how 'bout free tickets to JB's fave local hockey team.
Mayor Mathieson's offering Hailey and Justin seats to watch the Stratford Warriors -- Justin's got 'em tatted on his shoulder -- if they tie the knot in winter. If they opt for a summer affair, Mathieson says he'll guarantee Bieber a spot in the town's annual Summer Music festival ... although that sounds like more of a win for the city.
As for the wedding guests -- they'll all get discounted admission to Justin Bieber's exhibit, "Steps to Stardom," at the Stratford Perth Museum.
Swag aside, hizzoner told us Justin knows the locals will respect his privacy -- as they always do -- if he gets hitched there. Plus, he has a lot of family in the area ... and Hailey's fam isn't too far away in NY.
Throw in a couple Canadian tuxedos and ya might close the deal, Mr. Mayor!
