Prince George, B.C. –  There will be no shortage of  pink in  Prince George today, as  folks  wear the colour  as a message to  stop bullying.“We normally  have  the schools in session  to  help  spread the word about anti-bullying day” says Superintendent Warren Brown, “but with the Canada Winter Games on, and schools on  spring break,   we felt  it is was important to  recognize national anti-bullying day.”

Superintendent Brown, the Chief Superintendent  of North District  Rod Booth and visiting  officers  from E Division,  went to the effort to  dye  their  white shirts pink  an wear them today to raise awareness .”It’s important  to show  the RCMP support safer communities” says Superintendent Brown, “So today it’s one  day we can demonstrate  our vision, our management is behind community  engagement  and awareness around this issue .  I think   generally our community , our society , is getting better at speaking out  and having these  discussions, it moves us forward.”

RCMP leadership and support staff are not the only  folks in  Prince George supporting pink shirt day,  TeamBC is also  throwing its support behind the anti-bullying message . “Team BC makes it a priority at every Games to think beyond the competition and to contribute to a social legacy,” said Rob Needham, Team BC Chef de Mission. “Seeing Team BC sporting pink instead of blue today at the Canada Winter Games will make a strong statement of the importance of this campaign and to stand up against bullying.”

Team BC will be tweeting from @GoTeamBC using the hashtags #TBCgoespink and #Pinkitforward to support the movement.




Apparently, only people who wear pink get bullied.
