Title: What constitutes as cyber
bullying (stalking)
· Cyberbullying is when an individual becomes a target by others — using computers, cell phones or
other devices — to embarrass, humiliate, torment, threaten or harass. It is often repeated and
sustained over a period of time.
· The range of cyberbullying tactics is wide and is constantly changing as new technology emerges
and different social networking sites pop up.
· Sending mean or threatening messages by email, text or through comments on a social networking
page is an example of cyberbullying.
· Another example is spreading rumours, gossip, or secrets about another person through social
networking sites, emails or texts.
· Posting online stories to humiliate or embarrass someone constitutes as cyber bullying. As well as
hacking their email account.
· Tricking someone to open up and share personal information and then sharing that information
with others is another form of cyber bullying.
· Several Criminal Code offences deal with cyber bullying. Depending on the exact nature of the
behaviour, the following current offences could be charged:
o Criminal harassment
o Uttering threats
o Intimidation
o Mischief in relation to data;
o Unauthorized use of computer;
o Identity fraud
o Extortion
o False messages, indecent or harassing telephone calls
o Incitement of hatred; and,
o Defamatory libel.
· If an image of you has been shared on the internet that you want removed, visit needhelpnow.ca
for the steps that can be taken to get that picture/video off the internet.
· Extortion in the Criminal Code: “Everyone commits extortion who, without reasonable justification
or excuse and with intent to obtain anything, by threats, accusations, menaces or violence”
