Watch Amanda Todd's memorial online Sunday
Port Coquitlam teen posted cry for help on Youtube before committing suicide
CBC News will livestream the Celebration of Life for Amanda Michelle Todd on Sunday, November 18, starting at 1:30 p.m. PT from the Red Robinson Theatre in Coquitlam, B.C.
Amanda Todd, a 15-year-old girl from Port Coquitlam, B.C., committed suicide in October after suffering through two years of cyberstalking, harassment, and bullying.
Just weeks before her death, Todd posted a poignant video to YouTube, in which she detailed her plight with bullies and others who tried to manipulate her in person and online.
In the video, using a series of flash cards, Amanda told the story of how she was stalked online and how a series of offline social betrayals left her feeling completely alone.
The video gained worldwide recognition after her suicide, and registered over 6 million hits. Copies of her video re-posted to YouTube have since gained at least 16 million additional hits.
