Harper says society must do whatever it can to stop cyberbullying

WINNIPEG - Prime Minister Stephen Harper met in Winnipeg today with parents of some children who have been victims of cyberbullying.

Harper says he wishes such meetings weren't needed, but they are.

Among those at the meeting were the parents of Rehtaeh (reh-TAY'-uh) Parsons and the mother of Amanda Todd —- two girls who committed suicide after relentless bullying.

The federal government has already committed to look at new criminal laws that could include a ban on distributing intimate images without consent.

Harper says society has to do whatever it can to make sure what happened to Parsons, Todd and others does not happen again.
