Okay, here it is, the survey. It takes a few minutes and you have the opportunity at the end to write some of your thoughts and suggestions down for the Task Force to see. Step up! Take the Survey! This is as much a Community issue as it is a Youth Issue.

Here is the Press Release:

The province is inviting Nova Scotians to share their ideas and experiences on cyberbullying through a new survey and website, launched today, June 10.

"We are dealing with a very serious issue and we want to hear from Nova Scotians about the impacts cyberbullying has on their lives," said Education Minister Ramona Jennex. "Together, we can help prevent this form of harassment."

The Cyberbullying Task Force and working group will use the information from the survey to help develop recommendations for the Minister of Education.

Along with the survey, the website will provide Nova Scotians with contact information and links to partnering organizations and Kids Help Phone.

"I have already heard from many Nova Scotians who are concerned about cyberbullying and offering to help in some way," said Wayne MacKay, Cyberbullying Task Force chair. "This website will offer a way for people to connect and share their insights and ideas about reducing the problem."

Last April, Ms. Jennex announced a task force to address the issue of cyberbullying. She requested a report by the end of the year.

The survey is available at .
