The team contacted youth worker Rick Lewis in Cartwright about their plans to come to Labrador to do talks with kids on Bullying.
"As soon as I heard about this message, we were onboard," said Rich Lewis.
Phil Watson, founder of the Half Pints, said he came up with the idea 31 years ago.
"I was told dwarfs will never get the ball up the hoop and they will never get to win their first game," he said. "They sure can play some ball and win their games."
The group travels all over the country to try to get the message out to young people on the importance of bullying.
"Bullying can bring bad results," said Watson. "Some kids commit suicide, people can give up on life and lose their self esteem."
"Sometimes schools are not a good place to be when kids are bullied and our guys are trying to make a difference in the world and this is how we try."
Watson said the problem has gotten greater in the past 30 years.
"Every child should be able to go to school happy because it's a fun place to be, a fun place to learn and a great place top make new friends."
"For some kids, that isn't the case and life can be very hard for them. We want to do everything we can to change it for them," he said.
Some of the current group experienced teasing and bullying as kids. They said this was an opportunity for them to give back to the community.
Porky, one team member, said their active job is to have fun with the kids.
"Bullying can be very devastating to kids and some damage can be irreparable. I was a victim of Bullying and it got so bad I had to give up going to school and do my learning privately at home. It was very difficult for me."
"Anyone under four feet can join at anytime if they like to do this," said Porky.
"The Canadian half Pints showed people alone can do anything. I feel their words helped people in this community," Cartwright resident Peggy-Ann Heard said.
"I thought it was pretty cool and it was an eye opener for people around here," said student Shannon Davis.
"It was really good to see something different. It was really different to see people playing basketball too since we are a hockey community. I think people enjoyed what they saw and heard."
"I thought it was pretty neat," said resident Patty Williams. It's different for our community. "It's a different way to show kids what can be done and how to handle it."
Several youth played against the team in two games. They also attended a presentation called "Bullying is Not Cool" where members of the Half Pints talked about the negative effects of bullying.
