Pink Shirts Stand Against Bullying

It’s a day of promoting awareness of the problems of bullying, harassment, and discrimination.

Today, February 27th is pink shirt day in BC.

The pink shirt movement started in Nova Scotia in 2007 after a 9th grader was bullied for wearing one. In response, 50 shirts were bought and distributed at the school.

“We need to discourage it,  stop it, and just ask people to just to think before they say things,” CRD Area G Director Al Richmond said of bullying and harassment.

“Certainly with social media, it’s easy to do that. People say things before they really think about what they’re saying and they can’t take it back.”

According to the Red Cross, being bullied can lead to serious emotional problems, including anxiety, low self-esteem, and depression.
