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.
