As Mayor of Mississauga, I am proud to take part in the Pink is the New Blue Campaign and to challenge all other mayors, and residents, to be part of such a worthy cause!
The Police Association of Ontario has partnered with Kids Now to help promote bullying prevention. All you have to do is take a selfie with a local police officer, post it and tag it #lovethyselfiepledge. Earlier today, I took a couple of with Peel Police Chief Jennifer Evans and the team from Peel Regional Police.
The Pink is the New Blue campaign will use social media to increase awareness and encourage parents, caregivers, officers and teachers to take a quick and simple online quiz about how to identify a potential situation and how to listen to their children if they are being bullied.
The kinder we are to ourselves, the kinder we are to others. Together, we can make our communities safer.
