CORNWALL, Ontario — The team at school bus contractor Delaney Bus Lines stepped up to support Canadian anti-bullying campaign Pink Shirt Day in late February by wearing pink shirts.

The pink theme originated from an incident that happened in September several years ago, when two Nova Scotia high school students organized a protest to support a ninth-grade boy who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The 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.

Officials said the Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG helped to organize this year’s Pink Shirt Day.

Mark Begg, general manager at Delaney Bus Lines, said that he was extremely proud of his team for taking part in the annual event on Feb. 26.  

“We are only a small part of a student’s school day; however, we are committed to keeping our school buses bully-free zones,” Begg said.

In addition to this awareness campaign, Begg said that school bus drivers get to participate in workshops such as “Growing Respect on Your School Bus” and “Building Positive Student Behavior on Your School Bus” throughout the school year.
