Manitoba musicians have united to speak out against bullying.
Jarrod Tully of Storm the Castle Media joined forces with Drew Kozub and musicians like The Lytics, Don Amero, Keith & Renee, Les Jupes, Imaginary Cities, The Wailin' Jennys and others in an effort to raise awareness on the topic.
"There seem to be more and more reports of kids killing themselves because of bullying," said Tully. "I think it's something that needs more exposure. Just letting kids know there are places they can go for help is important because I think a lot of times they feel so isolated and don't realize how much support is out there."
The musicians featured in the video report statistics from a 2011 Ipsos-Reid survey that found 25 per cent of girls and 17 per cent of boys have witnessed online harassment and urge kids to step in when they see bullying while offering strategies for those attracting the negative attention.
