"We unleashed a monster": Glen Canning
Glen Canning is Rehtaeh Parsons' father. She is the 17-year-old from Nova Scotia who took her own life after she was allegedly gang-raped and photos were sent out on social media.
Canning was in Montreal today to attend a question and answer session at McGill University.
We had a wide-ranging discussion about his daughter's death. Canning told me what advice he has for parents. He told me what he thought of the police, media and the public's response to his daughter's passing.
The bottom line is that Rehtaeh Parsons' death was a tragedy. And Canning is working very hard, doing his best, to prevent another family from suffering the same way.
