The anti-bullying campaign It Gets Better has been growing in profile since its launch in the U.S. in September. Initially targeted at gay youth in response to a series of teen suicides, this video initiative has sparked countless submissions, including an uplifting clip put together by Canadian artists.
A group of concerned CBC employees has now posted its own It Gets Better video, timed to coincide with Bullying Awareness Week. CBC Radio producers Andrea Chiu and Ryan Couldrey conceived of the video and shot it, gathering inspiring messages from people like Dragons' Den judge W. Brett Wilson, as well as a slew of radio personalities, including Day 6 host Brent Bambury, Definitely Not the Opera's Sook-Yin Lee and Q's Jian Ghomeshi.
