Day of Pink

Wednesday, April 8th is this year’s Day of Pink, and my workplace is taking a visual stand against bullying by encouraging employees to wear pink. The Day of Pink is a uniquely Canadian effort intended to take a stand against bullying and homophobia. It was started by  Jer’s Vision (recently changed to “The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity”) after a student at a Nova Scotia high school was bullied for wearing pink (CBC, 2007).

I was reviewing some of the material from last year’s Day of Pink: and I discovered that my favourite Provincial Park, Grundy Lake, where I’ve been camping for decades, submitted the picture at right in mid-April, significantly before the camping season started in May.
