The Canadian Red Cross is holding its annual “Pink Day” anti-bullying campaign today with hopes many will wear pink shirts and take to social media to show their support.
Project leader Luc Mullinder says the “Imagine No Bullying” campaign has been a huge success in Saskatchewan thanks to the involvement of many including the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
He adds that while the day is highlighted today, having a no-bullying stance is something that should happen and be discussed 365 days a year.
Mullinder says Saskatchewan is leading the nation and many eyes are on the province to see what is happening here.
He says the campaign has gone from reaching one in every five students in Saskatchewan to one in three with the goal being to have it reach every student in Saskatchewan by 2019.
Those wearing pink shirts are invited to show their support on social media with the hashtag #pinkday
