Tonight's special guest is Wayne Harvey from Bikers Against Bullying (Canada), BAB(C), a non-profit organization that's bringing awareness to social media to help the victims of bullying. Although Wayne wasn't himself abused as a child he's become aware of others who were traumatized in various ways. Now they're adults, and some of them are involved in help today's kids. "I use to be with and around a lot of bikers and I use to be a fighter," Wayne says. "When I was in elementary school I was bullied, and that's why I learned how to fight. When I was getting older I worked with kids who had many different issues, and the reason I took on helping the victims of bullying, is because I was on both sides of the street, so to speak." His BAB(C) efforts are helping a great deal. Wayne stresses that too many schools are refusing to take any accountability for the bullying that goes on. "I am now working with our new MP (Member of Parliament) to try to get a new law passed that all schools are to be mandated to have an Anti-Bullying Program in place at the start of every new school year." He says principals and teaching staff who are told that a student is being bullied need to be required to not only look into who is doing the bullying but also what the victim is being bullied about and be mandated to have the bullying student or students to be temporarily suspended .. at least until the bullying is looked into. Wayne says, "This has to stop. I may have been a wild child in my younger years but now I will keep on fighting for these teens/kids," concluding, "I feel that I have a mission to help those bullied kids."
