RCMP Constable Andre Sparkes
Children in the First Nations community of Chapel Island in Cape Breton are getting some help in dealing with bullies.
A new program was launched at the Chapel Island school today. It's called WITS.
Chapel Island is one of six test sites across Canada for the program, and the only one in Nova Scotia.
The CBC's Wendy Martin dropped by as RCMP Constable Andre Sparkes met with the students to explain how it works.
