One of Les Mz Judged contestants is Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain, who has been busy through his Facebook portal soliciting donations with an offer that some may be able to refuse, or pay to refuse, while others perhaps will be most intrigued by the Mayor's promise, with donations increasing through the week towards a big reveal!

The Prince Rupert night has been a very successful version of what has become a growing number of similar events held across British Columbia, as well, snippets from past Prince Rupert shows have become part of the early rushes of what is hoped to be a documentary on the project.

More on the province wide efforts can be found here, the trailer for the documentary can be reviewed below.

The main theme of the Mz Judged competition is to help raise awareness about, and to end the cycle of violence agains women.

Over the last five years the Prince Rupert event has helped connect the community with the issues and engaged men in a dialogue about ending violence against women.

More background on the North Coast Transition Society and their work in Prince Rupert and the surrounding area can be found on their website and Facebook page.
