SAFE International™ has launched our new Bullying page on the website.  Here is an excerpt from it that provides some bullying statistics here in Canada.  The studies on bullying have provided much more insight over the years as to why bullies bully and the misconceptions many have had over the years in regards to the behaviour.  To see the full page, visit http://www.safeinternational.biz/classes/bullying.html
