Amanda Michelle Todd was a 15 year old Canadian teenager who commited suicide, as a result of Cyber-Bullying, through on the social network Facebook. On September 7, 2012, she posted a video on YouTube, describing her plight, claiming that the entirety of the incident can be traced to sending an image of her breasts to a man who later circulated it on the internet. Around 6:00 pm, on October 10, 2012, the RCMP were called to a home in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, to investigate what they refered to as a "sudden death". This incident resulted in a series of actions at the highest administration levels of the school board, and legislative attention to the wider problem of bullying.
