Young Canadian Actor Rallies Community Leaders for Human Rights

  Young Canadian Actor Tyler Hynes will be holding an informal information session with several GTA community leaders to tell them about an exciting new movement taking over Canada. The session will discuss how to start incorporating and teaching the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to all young people from grade 4 up.

Tyler Hynes, who is a Gemini Nominated young actor, is the National Spokesperson for the Youth for Human Rights International for Canada. At the age of nineteen his body of work is impressive. He stars in the upcoming season of the Teen TV series 15/Love on YTV and has starred in two previous TV series, namely "Peter Benchley’s Amazon" and "Tales from The Neverending Story". His Gemini nomination for a Dramatic role came on the heels of a star making performance in the CTV movie "Tagged: The Jonathan Wamback Story". It is during the making of this movie and dealing with this real life Human Rights violation that he became more sensitive to the issues of rights. He has also starred along such names as Kirsty Ally, Andie McDowell, Tim Roth, Steve Guttenburg and Mariel Hemmingway, to name a few, in a variety of feature films and TV movies.

Tyler and his brother Brandon are going to schools and talking with kids about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is with great pride and a sense of urgency that Tyler and Brandon take this new task to heart of spreading the word on human rights to other kids and getting them involved in making these rights a reality.

Tyler said "Canada has always had the reputation for being a peace keeping nation and taking care of the rest of the world. I am very proud of this and find it that much more important that kids learn at an early age to be aware of human rights for themselves and others. I wish I had the opportunity to learn this in a school setting when I was in school. There is one quote I really am taking to heart by a humanitarian L.Ron Hubbard "Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream". Martin Luther King Jr. also said "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." I want to do my part to get people looking out for themselves and others and the key to that is educating them that these rights exist."
