Hundreds of students, both uniform and civilian Service members gathered at Oakwood Collegiate Institute as part of the International Day Against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia and Transphobia, otherwise known as the Day of Pink. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink to support the message that bullying in any form is unacceptable. Many Service members also wore pink at work today, including at headquarters and the Pan Am Integrated Security Unit.
