“Mistreatment, harassment and victimization have no place anywhere in our society, and it must not be tolerated anywhere, anytime,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson. “We must end this disturbing problem and work every day to create a more kind and inclusive world where everyone is respectful and accepting of others, regardless of differences.” 


Victims of bullying need to know that they are not alone, and that there is help and support available to them. Participating in Pink Shirt Day sends a strong message that others care.  


MPP Wilson encourages everyone to listen Trevor Henson’s message to practice kindness, acceptance and respect for one another, to stand up against bullying and to help build a more caring, compassionate and inclusive community.
