TDSB to hold moment of silence for bullying victims
Students and staff in Toronto schools will pause for a moment on silence Friday morning to remember bullying victims who have committed suicide, and those who are bullied right now.
The Toronto District School Board has announced that 250,000 of its students and 40,000 of its staff members will hold the moment of silence at 11 a.m.
The moment of silence will take place the same day that a vigil is planned in B.C. for teen Amanda Todd.
The fifteen-year-old killed herself last Wednesday, weeks after she posted a YouTube video about being bullied.
The TDSB says it is holding the moment of silence to show that as Canada's largest school board, it stands firmly against bullying.
