POLL: Will you be wearing pink to take a stand against bullying?

  • Feb. 21, 2019 9:45 a.m.

Schools and workplaces across Greater Victoria and around the province will be a sea of pink on Wednesday, Feb. 27 as people of all ages and from all walks of life take a stand against bullying.

Pink Shirt Day is a national campaign against bullying. The idea started in 2007 when two Nova Scotia high school students wanted to support a fellow student, who was being bullied for wearing a pink T-shirt. They bought pink shirts of their own in an act of solidarity. Since then, the campaign has spread and evolved into an entire day where schools, businesses and local law enforcement departments don pink clothing.

Will you be wearing pink on Feb. 27? Take our poll and make your voice heard.
