Terrace RCMP gets pink to stand up against bullying

With pink accessories, undershirts and even pink hair, the Terrace RCMP got colourful to show its support for National Pink Shirt Day.

The local detachment was one of many across the province wearing pink on National Pink Shirt Day, Feb. 28, to help raise awareness against bullying.

“Be it in person, online, at school, work, or anywhere else in the community, bullying can be any unwelcomed or aggressive behaviour that often makes a person uncomfortable, hurt or scared,” read an RCMP release. “It can have long-term effects physically, socially or psychologically not only on the victim, but the bystanders who witness it as well.”

Bullying is something we can never allow ourselves to be okay with, said Terrace RCMP Inspector Sydney Lecky. “Our Terrace detachment members stand together in showing each other and the community that bullying is not something we tolerate. We should stand against it always.”

The RCMP also reminds parents to speak to their children about bullying to ensure they aren’t silent victims.
