NDP launches its Movember Campaign
New Democrat MP Dennis Bevington (Western Arctic) launched the NDP’s Movember campaign this morning by getting his moustache shaved for the first time in forty years.
“I shaved my moustache as a tribute to my late friend Jack Layton and also to raise public awareness about screening for prostate cancer,” said Bevington.
MP Matthew Dubé (Chambly-Borduas) will once again this year organize an event at the end of the month to highlight the best moustache of the New Democrat team. “I invite all my colleagues and Canadians to do their part for the cause. Movember is much more than a fundraising campaign – it’s an awareness campaign for men’s health,” concluded Dubé.
