Two Nova Scotia students are being praised across North America for the way they turned the tide against the bullies who picked on a fellow student for wearing pink.
David Shepherd, and Travis Price (shown in this photo) decided to spread word of their ‘sea of pink’ campaign on the internet. ((CBC))
Bullies harassed the boy, called him a homosexual for wearing pink and threatened to beat him up, students said.
Two Grade 12 students— DavidShepherd and Travis Price—heard the news and decided to take action.
“I just figured enough was enough,” said Shepherd.
They went to a nearby discount store and bought 50 pink shirts, including tank tops, to wear to school the next day.
Travis Price takes the message of Anti-Bullying across Canada.
Sean Kelly and Orlena Cain of the Mix97 Morning Show speak to Travis as he wraps up his presentation in our area today before heading to Edmonton.
Principal of Quinte Secondary School, Lianne Woodley joins Mix97 as well.
Snow fell early in Batawa last night. First it came from the skies and then from machines. A drop in temperatures brought a snow squall through the area and then provided the first opportunity for the cutting-edge snow-making technology to be turned on at the Ski Hill. 15 snow guns operated from about 11:00p.m. to 9:00a.m. to start the first layer of snow for the ski and snowboard season. The snow guns will operate again on Friday night and cooler temperatures are forecasted to return mid next week so the guns will make snow once again.
“We’re getting excited,” said Outside Operations Manager Danny MacDuffie. “The guys have been looking forward to getting the new snow grooming machine on the slopes. It won’t be long now.”
MIC-see you real soon…..KEY….why? Because we love you.
MICKEY MOUSE BIRTHDAY IS TODAY!
Two different people have taken credit for giving Mickey Mouse his first name. History has it that Walt Disney’s wife Lillian came up with it because she thought his original name, Mortimer, was too pompous. But child-star-turned-movie-star Mickey Rooney frequently claimed that it was his meeting with Walt in 1920 that provided the inspiration. Walt, being a very smart man, sided with his wife on that one.
Whether it was Lillian Disney or Mickey Rooney, it doesn’t matter: to this day, Mickey Mouse is one of the most well-known characters around the globe, surpassing even Santa Claus in recognizability here in the United States. He’s also the most frequently used write-in candidate in American local elections, still topping the list as recently as November of 2014. (Cohort Donald Duck is a close second.) By 1987, the state of Georgia actually had to make it illegal to vote for Mickey, and Wisconsin is apparently considering similar legislation. Good luck! Despite his tiny size and falsetto voice, Mickey Mouse is an unstoppable force.
Sean Kelly and Orlena Cain of the Mix Morning Show highlight the lovable, big-eared, three fingered mouse. MICKEY~!
