"Working with Ryan Laird and his Bigger Than That! team was a pleasure. Ryan lent his story and music to the "RCMPTalks: A national conversation on Bullying and Cyberbullying". Over 100 youth from across Canada's east coast participated (and numerous others live streamed the event) to watch Ryan engage and motivate young Canadians to stand up to bullying and to follow their dreams. The response from youth, teachers, police officers and those following along on social media (#RCMPTalks) were encouraging and positive. If you get a chance for Ryan to play at your school, I would certainly recommend it."
Louis Zuniga, RCMP, National Youth Strategy
