TORONTO, Ont. — Things are about to get a little hairy for the Toronto Trucking Association. This November, the group is inviting its members to take part in “Movember,” a month-long charity event that will see men across Canada growing moustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues – specifically prostate cancer.

“We feel this is a great way to build morale in the work place while creating awareness for prostate cancer,” Burbidge said.
