'Pink Shirt Day' was Wednesday, February 26, 2014. The North Vancouver RCMP once again showed strong support for this most worthwhile cause. In 2007, several Nova Scotia high school teens wore pink shirts in support of a fellow student who was being bullied. Their efforts proved effective and the unique show of solidarity has spread across Canada. The students demonstrated that change can happen and there is strength in numbers.
"Police see all too often the negative effects of bullying in our schools and communities. There is a real need to bring awareness to bullying and the hurt it brings to innocent victims," stated S/Sgt. Glenn Magark of the North Vancouver RCMP. "Be part of the solution – not part of the problem."
On Friday evening, October 12, 2012, a total of $13,780.02 was raised when the North Vancouver community showed up in support of a charity hockey game between the North Vancouver RCMP and the local 'North Van Wolf Pack'. All proceeds went to the COPS for Cancer, Canadian Cancer Society.
