Mustache intact, but negotiations underway

By Jane Wilson–Queen Charlotte’s most famous mustache continues to thrive, after Queen Charlotte RCMP failed to raise the required $2,000 in donations to remove Lindsey Doerkson’s renowned whiskers.”They’re sitting on their laurels” said Mr. Doerkson, “I’ve had calls from as far away as Dawson Creek wondering where to send the money. I would still shave it off, because it’s for a good cause, but if I’m not getting my arm twisted I’m not going to do it.” Mr. Doerkson believes the RCMP have managed to raise a little over a thousand dollars and when asked why his mustache is so special he said, “I don’t know, it’s just a mustache.””We maybe set the goal to high” said Corporal Ron Mach, “but we’ve talked to him and he might shave it off for less.” While those negotiations continue, Cpl. Mach said the Queen Charlotte RCMP members are planning on giving money instead of presents at their staff Christmas party and donating the money to the Hospital Day fund, so they may yet reach their $ 2000 goal.
