Stop Bullying Day
The City of Port Coquitlam will once again take a stand against bullying by taking part in Stop Bullying Day on February 26, 2014.

This is the City’s seventh year participating in the national anti-bullying campaign that started in 2007 after two boys in Nova Scotia rallied around another student who was bullied for wearing a pink polo shirt.

On February 26, wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere. Wear a pink shirt, hat, scarf, glasses - or whatever! - while at school, work, or wherever you are.

This year, Youth Services has partnered with bc211, an information and referral organization.

The free, confidential, multilingual 24/7 service connects people to community, social and government services. It can be accessed by dialling 2-1-1.
