Canadian Pol: Bully Bad, 3rd-6th Graders Favor Grand Theft Auto

A Canadian legislator has weighed in with support for a teachers’ group which is seeking to regulate Rockstar’s controversial Bully: Scholarship Edition.

John Nuraney (left), a member of British Columbia’s Legislative Assembly, told Burnaby Now┬áthat he “totally agrees” with the British Columbia Teachers Federation’s call to boycott Bully:

The dangers are known to all. I think it’s a question of jurisdiction. The only thing it seems right now is to bring more awareness.

Nuraney recently spoke about video games in the Assembly, saying:

It may be of interest to this house to know that one of the top video games for boys in grades 3 to 6 is Grand Theft Auto. While it is admirable that our children of today adapt very quickly to this technology, it is also alarming that without proper guidance and supervision, they can fall victims to the unscrupulous predators.

The basis for Nuraney’s comments about GTA is not known. GamePolitics has a request in for more information and we’ll update if a response is forthcoming.
