Rick’s Rant – Teen Suicide

Canadian comedian Rick Mercer used his weekly televised rant Tuesday night to passionately denounce gay bullying after the suicide of Ottawa teenager Jamie Hubley.

Hubley, 15, killed himself earlier this month after weeks of suicidal musings on his blog and social-media websites.

Mercer states, “It’s no longer good enough for us to tell kids who are different that it’s going to get better. We have to make it better now, that’s every single one of us. Every teacher, every student, every adult has to step up to the plate.
