Jim Elliott, former mayoral candidate and all-round activist and educator, will be shaving off his ample beard as part of a fundraiser for Carmichael Outreach on Friday, June 11. You can read about it on his Facebook page.

I got to wondering what should be done with all that shorn facial hair and I’m thinking he could get it fashioned into mullet extensions. That should boost his chances next election by 15-20 per cent because you know the Regina voter can’t resist a man with a mullet.
