Snowflake Walk honours Amanda Todd

People uniting against bullying are joining Amanda Todd's mother today in a special walk named after the BC teen.

A public event called the Snowflake Walk is named in honour of the 15-year-old who took her own life in October after repeated harassment.

Snowflake was Carol Todd's nickname for her daughter, and the walk is being held in her hometown of Port Coquitlam, east of Vancouver.

She says the walk is aimed at raising awareness so that people keep thinking about ways to end bullying.

The city's mayor, Greg Moore, is also attending the event, which is part of a new local anti-bullying program called Be Someone.

The teen's death has prompted a host of vigils, anti-bullying conferences and promises from politicians to take the issue more seriously. (CKNW, The Canadian Press)
