London, ON – Karen Vecchio, Conservative Shadow Minister for Families, Children and Social Development today issued the following statement celebrating the International Day of Pink:
“Along with my Conservative colleagues, I am proud to wear pink today to stand up against bullying and discrimination.
“Any form of bullying and discrimination, whether at school, at work or anywhere in our communities is unacceptable and has to stop. We as Canadians should celebrate our differences and together, we have the power to create safe and caring communities.
“No one deserves to feel alienated or isolated because of who they love or how they see themselves. We must take a stand and denounce all forms of bullying and discrimination and show our support for diversity. Together, we can make a difference.”
