Legislation in fall to fight cyberbullying
WINNIPEG - Justice Minister Peter MacKay says the Tories will introduce new legislation in the fall to fight cyberbullying.
MacKay was at the Canadian Centre for Child Protection in Winnipeg to make a donation to mark the birth of Prince George.
MacKay says the whole nation has been touched by the death of a 15-year-old Saskatchewan boy who was apparently driven to suicide because of bullying.
The teen's mother, Kim Loik ('LOY-k), says she wants to see Ottawa bring in national anti-bullying legislation.
MacKay says she won't have long to wait.
He says the governing Conservatives will bring in "holistic" legislation which will include greater public education and changes to the Criminal Code.
