“We’d like to express our appreciation to all of the individuals, families and businesses that donated to our campaign—it really is a great cause,” read a post from the shop’s social media accounts, announcing the campaign’s success.

’STACHE FOR CASH

A Manitoba collision centre came to play in a big way for Movember this year, raising more than $2,600 in support of men’s health research and warming their upper lips all at once.

In all, St. Claude Autobody, of the eponymous town an hour west of Winnipeg, raised $2,640 for the Movember Foundation, blowing well past their goal of $2,320 and last year’s record of $1,160.

The Movember Foundation supports research for a number of commonly overlooked men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

THEFT TRENDS

Catalytic converter thefts are the hot new trend for seedy jerks and now Manitoba Public Insurance has the data to prove it, as the public insurer revealed the unnerving statistic that thefts of this kind are up 450 percent in the province.

According to MPI’s data, 400 vehicles had their catalytic converters stolen in 2020, a far cry from the 2,200 pilfered over the first 11 months of 2021, in Manitoba.

MPI spokesperson Brian Smiley offered little in the way of comfort for Manitobans who want to protect themselves from this sort of crime, saying there isn’t much to do other than park in a garage whenever possible.
