The Prime Minister said it best.
What happened to Rehtaeh Parsons was not bullying.
It was sexual assault.
Made even worse by the fact that the act was played over and over on the Internet, forcing the young victim to take matters into her own hands.
Now it's your turn, Nova Scotia.
With the victim now in abstentia, will you finally stand up for Rehtaeh?
And for all the women, girls and boys who are waiting in line to be victimized?
It's not about sex.
It's not about humilation.
It's about power.
Rehtaeh Parsons lost her battle.
In death, she tragically took back her power.
Those boys can't hurt her anymore.
But they still have her death on their hands.
In turning your back on Rehtaeh, so do you, Nova Scotia.
Do the right thing.
