Movember gets personal for MP Fin Donnelly

New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly is joining the Movember movement to grow a moustache in honour of deceased NDP federal leader Jack Layton. Participants in the Movember campaign spend the month without shaving their moustache to bring awareness to prostate cancer—a disease that claimed Layton’s life earlier this year—and raise funds to fight the disease. “This campaign is very personal to me,” said Donnelly. “It is a fitting tribute to Jack. He was so positive throughout his illness; he would want us to continue to fight this disease and to do so with style and grace.”
