Harassment is when something a person says or does makes someone fear for his or her safety, or for the safety of others. Even if the perpetrator did not intend to frighten someone, she or he can be charged with harassment if the target feels threatened. </p> <p>Defamatory libel is a crime under the Criminal Code. It is most often treated as a crime if the libellous statement is directed against a person in authority and could seriously harm his or her reputation. Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees freedom of expression. However, this must be weighed against need for a a free and democratic society and, in the case of cyberbullying, must be weighed against Section 7, which guarantees the right to life, liberty and security of the person.CYBERBULLYING and Canadian law29BC Teachers Federation Cyberbullying</p> <p></p> <p>30 </p> <p>Promoting Ethical Behaviour Online</p> <p>31 50 Ways to Use Your Twitter (in class)32</p> <p>In class Are you Web Aware ?Resources to help students33 Faculty Development Social Media video</p> <p> for videos</p> <p> Other Resources34</p> <p>Any thoughts,comments,or questions?Follow up</p>
