Trudeau Brazeau
Liberal MP Justin Trudeau (L) and Conservative Senator Patrick Brazeau pose after weighing in for a charity boxing match on Wednesday at the Hampton Inn by Hilton Ottawa. Brazeau, who stands 1.78 metres and weighs in at 83 kilograms, is considered by some to be the favourite against the relatively reed-like Trudeau, who stands 1.88 metres and weighs 81.6 kilograms. The two men, who will face off against each other on March 31, stressed that the fight is not about who wins or loses but about raising money for charity. The goal of the sold-out event is to raise $200,000 for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. (Giovanni)
