Approximately 22 million and raised in Canada last year for the cause, said Trudeau.

“We will try to reach 30 million this year. We have to work hard,” he said. “But it’s an easy guy to work that just sort of sit back and let his face most of the heavy lifting.”

Trudeau said that people of all political stripes to participate in Movember this year, and urged Canadians across the country to support the men who took part in the campaign.

“It’s something everyone can be part of this,” he said.
