Dany Morin is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2011 election. He represents the electoral district of Chicoutimi—Le Fjord as a member of the New Democratic Party.
A chiropractor, he is one of five openly gay candidates elected to Parliament in the 2011 election. He serves as the NDP associate critic for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual issues, alongside lead critic Randall Garrison.
Morin, one of the youngest MPs in Parliament, and is openly gay, said he knows first hand about bullying, having been bullied in school from the time he was 10 until he was 15 years old.
"It was mostly verbal bullying and some physical bullying," recalled Morin. "Some of this bullying was due to me being overweight back then, but also due to my sexual orientation."
"It was a pretty dark time."
Morin introduced a motion in Parliament which called for a national strategy to combat bullying, but it got voted down. That has not stopped Morin from talking to students and teachers across the country about the issue.
"It is important to continue to talk about it, and to put pressure on the federal government to act on it, and not have to wait until the next young Canadian will not be able to live any longer with the bullying. "
