RCMP officers and employees of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD) wear pink to raise awareness to stop bullying as February 26 marks National Pink Shirt Day.

Bullying can be any unwelcomed, mean-spirited or aggressive behaviour that makes a person uncomfortable, upset or scared. It makes no difference if bullying takes place in person, at work or school, online or in the community. The act must not be tolerated.

The members and staff of the UFVRD are wearing pink to raise awareness to the issue and add our support in putting an end to bullying type behaviour, says Superintendent Bryon Massie, Officer in Charge of the UFVRD.

RCMP encourages young people to speak to parents or approach teachers or other adults they trust if they are experiencing bullying. The problem can only be rectified if the person affected comes forward.
