Amanda Todd’s mother says she’s ‘very upset’ she wasn’t invited to the province’s anti-bullying summit this week.

Education Ministry officials say Carol Todd was not invited to the summit.

Carol Todd said on Twitter she was ‘very upset’ at this, and said ‘they thought my presence might upset some of the students present.’

A ministry spokesman says staff were concerned of the ongoing impact of Amanda’s suicide on the kids and teens attending.

He said a ‘representative’ would be sent in her place, and that the Education Minister would meet with her after.
