    Scott Frank I really like the slogan ‘Stand Up, Speak Out. Stop Bullying. Together.’ But the nature of my comment is to bring attention to the fact that the youth and their many shouts have continually brought this issue to the board rooms of our school and government officials.So lets make sure we know where the credit is due, which in my opinion falls in line with the point the above gentleman is speaking out about. I would just like to add an example of one of many such youth run groups who have not taken the least bit of pressure off in sending their message to us all.You can also find them on Face Book,plus many others all youth based. Thank you. http://www.oub.ca/

    Proud to see another youth, someone I know, doing something in our province to make a difference! Sharing stories about others only does half of the job, but sharing your story and making a connection is the other half, or the full glass. Aaron is a good guy, and I know he'll make the impression he needs to make on these students.
