We Need to Talk About Suicide #EndTheStigma #MentalHealth

Today in Canada approximately 11 people will end their lives by suicide and approximately 210 others will attempt it. Five years ago my daughter was one of those people, and five years later the pain is just as great as it ever was. If regrets and grief were dirt, I could shovel a mountain and still not find the answers I need to explain this. [...]

Rehtaeh in Iqaluit, Nunavut

Memory stones for Rehtaeh and Amanda Todd were placed near Iqaluit, Nunavut, by Amanda's amazing mom, Carol. I was in Iqaluit back in 1994 and remember it as an incredible place. It means a lot to see a stone there for Rae. She would have loved Baffin Island. [...]

Rehtaeh Parsons, Photography, and Glen Canning

Meghan Murphy is an asshole. I had no idea who she was when she originally decided to attack me but I thought she is someone I should listen too. Now I know better. Murphy stands on a stack of academic papers staring down her nose at the world to see who see can deem unworthy next. There are two groups of people I can't stand - men's right activis [...]

Philip Rose is Christopher Rowe

Update: Philip Rose is Christopher Rowe. IP is [su_divider top="no"] As much as I hate to give a troll attention sometimes it's warranted. In the case of Carol Todd's stalker, quite likely the pedophile who tormented her daughter Amanda, this is a troll I don't mind writing about. He goes by the name Philip Rose but that is guaranteed [...]

The Right Legislation at the Right Time

It was hard for us to believe. The sharing of a humiliating image of our daughter Rehtaeh, taken without her knowledge, was not a police matter. We were told it was a community issue, not a legal one. A 'community issue' is lingo for there's nothing you can do about it and/or it's to big for the police to handle so go away. The photo was and is now [...]
