I have a page set up that is dedicated to Rehtaeh’s life and her case. You can find it here. You can also read more about Rae at the Rehtaeh Parsons Society website or on her memorial Facebook page.
Rehtaeh’s story has made a lot of necessary and positive changes. Changes to the Criminal Code of Canada were important but not nearly as important as seeing many young people stand up for what is right. We have heard back from many of them and their parents. It helps a great deal to know she has made a difference in the world.
On the 5th Anniversary of Huffington Post Canada I was named as a Top 50 Contributor for my writing on Rehtaeh, sexual violence, and issues of consent. It’s humbling to be named alongside Prime Minister Trudeau, astronaut Chris Hadfield, musician Drake, photographer and friend Donovan Mahoney, and many others.
I am especially honored to know fellow advocates Raffi, Jean-Paul Bédard, and Carol Todd.
