Over 8,000 Calgary and area students packed the Saddle Dome and were given pink shirts in honour of Pink Shirt Day, in an effort to rally against bullying. Pink Shirt Day was an idea originated by a pair of high school students from Nova Scotia back in 2007. They witnessed a fellow student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, so they decided to take a stand.
