Huge gathering at anti-bullying event

An event set up to discuss the topic of bullying attracted a huge crowd in Port Coquitlam on Wednesday night at Terry Fox Theatre as many continue to seek answers in the wake of Amanda Todd’s high-profile suicide.

The event was called Bullying: It Ends With You.

Wendy, whose son knew Amanda Todd, felt the panel discussion with psychologists, educators and youth advocates was useful.

“This is very timely. It’s been in the works for a long time and it’s just quite incredible everything happened the way it did, so I’m glad the turnout that they did. There’s a little more education out there and people are going to feel a little bit more empowered and able to help.”

The evening also featured a documentary on bullying produced by the Red Cross.
