In the Pink Today

Hopefully you are in the pink today with it being Pink Shirt Day throughout the country.

Local area schools and businesses are marking the day by wearing pink shirts to spread the message bullying is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

In 2007, Berwick Nova Scotia, after a new student at their school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt, two grade 12 students bought 50 pink shirts and encouraged their classmates to wear pink. The next day they went to distribute the shirts and to their surprise most students arrived wearing pink and with that act of kindness, Pink Shirt Day was born.

In Canada, many students have heard the Pink Shirt Day message from kindergarten through to their high school graduation, and the movement continues to grow.
