Michelle Stilwell on anti-bullying efforts in B.C.

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Michelle Stilwell made a Private Member’s Statement Feb. 24, 2014 on anti-bullying. “Students and educators throughout the province will be putting a special focus on creating inclusive and supportive school environments for every member of their school community,” the MLA told the House.

“I invite everyone to participate in Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, but, really, I invite everyone to take part 365 days of the year, 24-7, to be role models, to continue to talk about the issue and work together to find those great solutions.”

The Province of British Columbia has officially proclaimed Feb. 26 as Bullying Awareness Day.
