Bullying has been a topic that has enraged Rick Mercer for quite some time. The bullying of young homosexuals is an issue that he is now trying to fight. Obviously touched by the death of 15-year-old Jamie Hubley, a gay Ottawa teenager who committed suicide after being bullied, Mercer’s rant this week calls on more gay adults to act as role models for gay teens, to help avoid tragedies like Hubey’s. “Jamie Hubley was 15 years old. Any chance that he had to have someone to look up to as an example was obviously very important,” said Mercer.
