Yesterday children's aid workers wore pink to draw attention to the problem of bullying. Does that mean that CAS will stop surrounding homes with police cars while they take the kids from mom and dad?
Local CAS dons pink to draw attention to bullying
As part of an effort to draw attention to the problem of bullying in the community, staff at the Sudbury and Manitoulin Children's Aid Society (CAS) will be wearing pink on April 14.
"Despite some progress in raising public awareness the fact is bullying remains a problem in our schools, workplaces, homes and over the internet," Jane Kaija, president of Local 668 of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU), said.
The local represents the about 200 staff members at the Sudbury and Manitoulin CAS.
National Pink Shirt Day was started by a group of teenage boys in Nova Scotia, to support another boy who was the victim of bullying.
Across Canada, several schools, businesses and organizations mark the day and promote its slogan, "Bullying Stops Here," a press release said.
