BC’s Provincial Police Force, the RCMP supports all local communities and stands with them to fight against this negative behavior. Bullying!!! It can be any unwelcomed or aggressive behavior that makes a person feel uncomfortable, hurt or scared. Often bullying can have long term effects on a person, either physically, socially, or psychologically. Bullying is not a gender issue – it occurs with boys on boys, girls on girl and the opposite as well.
Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when a student at a Nova Scotia high school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school.
To take a stand against bullies, one student went out and bought pink shirts to give to his fellow students to show their support of the boy being bullied.
