Today is Pink Shirt Day in Fort St. John

Across the country, the last Wednesday in February is celebrated as Pink Shirt Day, or the Canadian National Day of Anti-Bullying.  

The event was originally started after a student was bullied at a Nova Scotia high school for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. Two teenaged boys bought and distributed 50 pink shirts to protest against bullying.
 
Here in town, several schools will be celebrating with a flash mob at 11 a.m.
