Rick Mercer's "rants" are usually of a more comic & satrical bent. But in the wake of the suicide of Jamie Hubley, yet another teenager who was bullied because he was gay, Mercer's rant this week (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh1jNAZHKIw) took a decidedly more serious turn.

There was also a follow-up interview (http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2011/10/27/rick-mercer-on-bullying-gay-teens/) with him on CBC Radio's "The Current" -- the streaming audio for this one is likely geoblocked outside of Canada though.

Good for Rick; he is fabulous. His book is also a great read.
