BC Golf Association Supports Anti-Bullying in Sport Campaign

Message to Allied Golf Association Board from Kris Jonasson, BCGA Executive Director.

Hi Everyone,

At our last board meeting I talked briefly about our plans to start a discussion relative to “Anti-Bullying in Sport”. This initiative was formally launched on February 22, 2017 with a formal signing of Declaration of Commitment by 65 sport leaders. Both the Premier of the Province Christy Clark and the Minister of Sport Peter Fassbender participated in the signing.

I have attached a poster that will be distributed to all clubs starting in mid-May along with a copy of the signed declaration of commitment. We are in the process of having the declaration translated and available in French, Korean, Punjabi, Mandarin and 7 different First Nation languages.

We believe this issue does represent a barrier to the growth of the game and a conversation needs to be started. We ask for your support in this initiative.

Regards,
 
Kris Jonasson
