Prince Edward Island Premier Robert Ghiz has accepted an unusual challenge from Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall.
Ghiz says the two men are now in a competition to determine who can grow the best moustache as part of the Movember fundraising campaign for prostate cancer research – last year, Canadians raised $42-million for the cause.
The PEI Premier says Mr. Wall called to ask him for a donation toward his goal of raising $3,000 by Nov. 1.
By Monday, the Saskatchewan Premier was closing in on $4,000.
Mr. Ghiz says he’s not setting a fundraising target, but he’s already on Facebook asking for donations.
The premiers will get a chance to compare facial hair at a meeting in Halifax in late November.
