Don’t be a bully

If you’re a Canadian, there are lots of sporting events that catch your eye. CFL, NHL (Hockey Night in Canada, even if the theme song is different), curling, lacrosse, etc.

I want to take you back to a time not so long ago where a young Canadian superstar was performing a a half-time show. Yes, I’m talking about Justin Bieber.

Whether you like him or not, whether the throngs of adoring, screaming fans drive you crazy with anger or crazy with envy, JB is Canadian and deserves our respect. Oddly enough, it took a letter from Peter Mansbridge to make me realize this.

If you watched the performance or clips from YouTube, you’ll hear the crowd booing Bieber throughout the performance. People commented left & right about how Bieber didn’t fit the image of a Grey Cup performer (but apparently they’re okay watching Beyonce do her thing). Mansbridge likened the booing to “adult bullying”, which is exactly what it was.

Kids learn from watching us. Don’t be a bully. That’s all I gotta say ’bout that.
