The shirts commemorate Anti-Bullying Day in Canada Wednesday, Feb. 27.
"We are very, very supportive of this particular day and, we hope society is finally getting the message that bullying is very traumatic for the victims of bullying and it's time society paid attention and did something about it," stated Mayor Walter Gray.
