BOARD OF DIRECTORS
I am honoured to be the voice for those who’ve had theirs taken away by the cruel actions of a few. I commit to helping those who need it most and spread our message of kindness and understanding daily.
Andrew Neil Buck
Hi, Andy Buck here, proud VP of Bullying Ends Here!
The sensitive subject of bullying is always in the public spotlight, and we are fortunate to have secured the services of some notable persons to endorse Bullying Ends Here in our upcoming programs, including our Prime Minister, the Right Honourable Justin Trudeau.
None of this would have been possible without the support of the DLC team.
We truly appreciate your belief in us.
Thanks for everything that you continue to do, which in turn allows us to pursue our goal of not only changing lives, but saving them!
I am a mother of two amazing daughters, married to a Jr/Sr high school teacher and an employee at Shell Canada Ltd. I have always thrived to be my true, authentic self and to support others to do the same.
My oldest daughter has one of the kindest, most open hearts and truly wants to be her beautiful, unique, kind self. What I have learned is that the kids in her Elementary school weren’t so accepting of “what is different”. To watch your child go through the experience and not being able to totally shield them from the hurtful actions has been one of the most difficult experiences I have ever encountered.
This is one of many reasons why I wanted to be a part of “Bullying Ends Here”.
I wanted to be a part of the solution and support an individual who saw a call to action based on the story of Jaimie Hubley.
It is people like Tad and those who support him that start the tidal wave of change, one presentation at a time, one person at a time.

In 2017, Bullying Ends Here had an opening on the Board of Directors, and I was more than happy to join this outstanding, dedicated team. I had already been to Tad’s presentations, had seen in person how the students related to his story, and supported the program wholly.
I admire Tad for having the strength to share his personal story, and the commitment to continue to do so for so many years. Bullying and mental health issues have both been part of my own journey, along with so many other people - but most of us don’t have the courage or strength to share our experiences on such a grand scale. I am grateful that people like Tad can do so, for I know firsthand that there is comfort in learning that “you are not alone”. It is an important message to share with those who have encountered similar challenges.
I am blessed to have known Tad for over half my life, and as a Board Member I am happy to have the opportunity to be able to contribute to Bullying Ends Here in a small scale that I can.
I love being on The Board of Bullying Ends Here, because it is a proven fact, that Tad is saving lives, not just kids, but adults too. Tad sends a powerful message, that everyone should hear, and his passion for his work, is beyond words.
