A New Brunswick based anti-bullying advocate is calling upon federal and provincial leaders to step up to the plate and take suicides related to bullying also known as “Bullycides” more seriously.
Rob Frenette, Co-Founder of BullyingCanada, a national anti-bullying organization was upset after reading of the death of Jenna Bowers-Bryanton, of Belmont, Nova Scotia who killed herself after she was bullied by people online.
“I would like to commend Jenna’s mom for joining the Nova Scotia Parents Against Bullying committee and for taking a stand in memory of her daughter,” said Rob Frenette.
“No student should have to feel that the last option to dealing with a bullying situation is suicide. Anyone who feels that they are being bullied, have witnessed bullying, or have bullied someone can reach out for support. Please remember you are not alone” said Frenette
