Prostate Cancer Canada Challenges Canadians to Wear Plaid for Dad

TORONTO, May 14, 2015 /CNW/ - This morning Prostate Cancer Canada, along with Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, Commander of the Royal Canadian Navy announced the launch of its latest initiative, Wear Plaid for Dad.

Wear Plaid for Dad is a national awareness campaign to tackle the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men; prostate cancer. On June 19, PCC is asking Canadians to reach into their closet and clad themselves in this beloved pattern as a special nod to the men in their lives, leading up to Father's Day. Take a photo and share with the hashtag #WearPlaidforDad and visit to make a donation.

Pledges to wear plaid have already been made by notable Canadians including:

    Don Cherry, Hockey Night in Canada
    John Catucci, host of the Food Network's You Gotta Eat Here
    Dave Thomas, Second City TV
    The Honourable Stephen McNeil, Nova Scotia Premier

Prostate Cancer Canada is the leading national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, advocacy, education, support and awareness, benefiting the 1 in 8 Canadian men who will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

Will you take the plaid pledge on June 19?

Searchlight - The hunt For Canada's Best New Artist

Polls are open in the first round of Searchlight voting. You can head to the Searchlight homepage, start up the player and browse, or search by name, region or genre. You can vote for 10 songs per region per day. That means artists can help support other artists without hurting your chances of advancing. In fact, working together will help artists advance (and it's a great way to meet other bands around the country).

Polls for this round close on Monday, April 13, at 2:59 p.m. ET. The acts that make it to the next round will be announced on the radio and online the following afternoon (Tuesday, April 14), so make sure you tune in to your afternoon CBC Radio One program (they'll be playing Searchlight music throughout the competition, so tune in and feel free to reach out to them on Twitter).

Voting is open to anybody, anywhere, and we hope fans from all over the world will discover the music entered in Searchlight.
