Hampton To Host Second Anti-Bullying Rally

An anti-bullying rally will be held tomorrow in Hampton at the town's new outdoor park on Main Street starting at 11 in the morning with the theme being "Love is Louder".

Organiser Leanne Cochrane tells CHSJ News not every conflict that happens in school is bullying and the term is being misused or misunderstood. A single altercation is not bullying which, in her view, is repeated harassment or abuse.

There will be a barbeque and entertainment at the rally and an RCMP officer will talk about the ramifications of bullying and assault. 

The first rally was held over the winter to show support for a girl who said she had been bullied. Cochrane tells us the girl has since changed schools.
