Posted on:

The Government of Alberta is hosting an interactive webcast to talk about the effects of bullying and give Albertans the tools they need to promote healthy, respectful relationships.
The event will feature guest panelists answering Albertans’ questions, providing advice and discussing bullying prevention solutions for children, adults and seniors.

“No one person, group or law will eliminate bullying in our society. We must rally together to promote healthy, respectful relationships. This webcast brings many voices together to stop bullying behaviour and create kindness, respect and inclusion in our schools, communities and workplaces.”
- Sandra Jansen, Associate Minister of Family and Community Safety
