TC19-211

Bullying Stops Here. That’s the message the City is supporting as it encourages residents and civic staff to combat bullying at school, work, home and online by practicing kindness and wearing pink on Wednesday, February 27.

To raise awareness of the initiative, Transit buses can be spotted around the city sporting pink t-shirts. The t-shirts are spray painted on and will stay until the vehicles are washed.

The City of Saskatoon is committed to building a positive and inclusive workplace where all employees feel safe, valued and respected. Bullying is a serious workplace issue that can have adverse effects on employees and organizations as a whole. 

About Pink Shirt Day
Inspired by an act of kindness in small-town Nova Scotia, Pink Shirt Day acts to raise awareness of bullying in schools, workplaces, homes and online, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. To learn more, visit www.pinkshirtday.ca.
