What is bullying?
Bullying is defined as a power relationship carried on by one individual or group towards another person, and can include rumours, threats and hurtful words, in person or online, in addition to physical violence.
The annual Pink Shirt Day campaign, sponsored by CKNW, raises awareness about bullying and provides tools to help respond to and eradicate bullying.
