Many of Canada's great minds attended public schools! Notable examples include former PM Stephen Harper as well as yours truly!

Humility is your forté.

Not sure if I would include Harper in the group of "great minds". Public school bully would be more appropriate.

PET and Chretien both had a bully streak in them. Whether it is good or bad depends on your point of view.

Yeah the "little guy from Shawinigan" could throw his weight around. PET was certainly the one with the highest intellectual pedigree. Harper was of course smart but he acted about as close to an autocrat as we've had in modern times. Perhaps it was to do with his lack of legal training/background.

Should we have a law banning hurting other people's feelings? 
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

No, we should add the Nword to the national anthem.

Harper never enacted the War Measures Act.

No, he arrested 1000 people in the streets of Toronto while spending a billion dollars on a last minute party for 18 of his crony buddies.

Well that did earn the city the name "Torontonamo Bay" and resulted in at least two lawsuits against TO police, but hey, we did get a few million bucks worth of gazebos!

Thanks for sharing, Omni.  This is a supportive community! We are here for you.

The most important thing to remember is: it gets better!  Things might seem hopeless right now, but you can make it through this if you don't give up.

There's no one reason why bullying happens. Every story is different. Many bullies push other people down because it makes them feel powerful and important. Others might feel threatened or insecure, or perhaps jealous of you. Others might be prejudiced against others. You might wonder why you've been singled out.  There's no one answer... it could be any number of reasons, and none of them are justified. You're not being bullied because there's anything wrong with you.

Don't be afraid to talk to the grown-ups in your life about this situation.  Talk to your parents or a teacher you trust. Or your scout troop leader, or your soccer coach. You don't have to be ashamed to ask for help.

There are lots of resources that you can look to for help. https://www.bullyingcanada.ca/

 Don't let anyone make you feel that you're not valuable.   You are valued. You are special. You have a great life ahead of you. Stay strong.

Feeling a little down today are we? I'm sure you could google up a little bedtime story from Harper to cheer things up.
