"Mitchell Wilson committed suicide on Sept. 6 at age 11. His parents say he was never the same after he was mugged in November 2010 by an older student at his Pickering school."

It’s actually really sad the amount of bullying that goes on in so many young people’s lives right now.

Our hearts go out to Mitchell’s father at this time.
