Bullying has become a MAJOR issue in the school system over the past couple of years.
Finally, it seems as if someone in a position of power is ready to take an aggressive stance on this issue in an effort to solve the problem as soon as possible.
Yesterday, the citizens of Canada took part in Pink Shirt day to shed light on bullying.
Pink Shirt Day, which is now held every Feb. 24, started in 2007 after a child in Nova Scotia was threatened and called gay for wearing a pink shirt.
The CKNW Orphans' Fund sponsors Pink Shirt Day, and says it has raised over CA$1.2 million in donations since the event's inception.
A number of schools, police officers, firefighters and other politicians also showed their support for the campaign on Wednesday, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who donned a pink T-shirt over his dress shirt and tie on Wednesday while speaking out against bullying.
