Candles will be lit in Beacon Hill Park on Friday night and in cities across Canada to remember bullying victim Amanda Todd.
People are welcome to gather at the duck pond any time after 5 p.m. with candles to be lit at 6 p.m. in memory of the 15-year-old Coquitlam girl who killed herself, said organizer Vanessa Downie.
Im hoping to raise awareness to show people being bullied and to show the bullies we will not accept it and we will stand up, Downie said.
People are encouraged to wear pink. There will be a book for people to sign that will be sent to Amandas mother.
Amanda killed herself in her home on Oct. 10 after years of being stalked online, tormented and bullied emotionally and physically.
Just weeks before her suicide, she posted a video on YouTube telling her story.
Amanda flashed her breasts on a webcam when she was only 12 years old. The image was posted and re-posted online. She was tormented by an online stalker who spread the images, leading to her also being taunted and attacked by her classmates.
