With bullying in our headlines almost weekly, it is more important than ever to say “Bullying Stops Here!” The team from Delaney Bus Lines is proud to wear pink today in support of Pink Shirt Day, organized by the Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall and SD&G.  Bullying can be stopped, but we must do it together.

The pink theme originated from an incident that happened in September several years back, when two Nova Scotia high school students organized a protest in sympathy with a Grade 9 boy.  The boy had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school.  Two male students subsequently handed out pink shirts to all boys in the school, making a non-violent statement that bullying will not be tolerated.

Mark Begg, Manager with Delaney Bus Lines said that he was extremely proud of his team for taking part in this annual event.  “We are only a small part of a student’s school day; however, we are committed to keeping our school buses bully-free zones.”  In addition to this awareness campaign, Begg said that school bus drivers also get to participate in workshops such as: “Growing Respect on Your School Bus” and “Building Positive Student Behaviour on Your School Bus” throughout the school year.
