The feds don't think anti-bullying strategies are worth it

After reading this article on how our Tory government doesn't feel the need to design a national anti-bullying strategy, my heart sank.  

Apparently our federal government is more concerned about pushing forward its oilsands-friendly foreign takeover economic action plans & buying an arsenal of fighter planes than protecting Canada's youth from bullying.  Remember that yahoo Vic Toews & his "you're with the pedophiles" malarkey?  Where is he now?  Isn't a stance on anti-bullying right up his alley?

I can only imagine how Amanda Todd's parents must feel about something like this.  Not only that, what about the people who are being bullied right now as we speak?  I've seen workplace bullying and it's just as bad if not worse.  Bullying in all forms must be stopped.

Looks like we can't rely on our elected leaders for help.  This is something we have to do for ourselves.

If you're being bullied, tell someone.  Doesn't matter how old you are.  Just tell somebody that you're being bullied.  Once you tell another person, you'll feel much better & you can begin to heal.
