The RCMP recognizes that Bullying ranks among the highest issues faced by youth in our communities. #PinkShirtDay is an opportunity to bring awareness to the issue, and show our support to help end bullying, states Assistant Commissioner Brenda Butterworth-Carr, Acting Commanding Officer of the RCMP in BC.

We encourage parents to start the conversation early and learn the warning signs. Bullying can come in many forms, verbally, physically, socially and online (Cyberbullying). In some cases, bullying can be criminal.

For more information about #PinkShirtDay, visit the @PinkShirtDay website or for Anti-bullying Safety Tips visit the BC RCMP Children and Youth Page.
