Bullying at school: A father from Saguenay complains about a lack of action

The story of this father who allegedly attacked a teenager who was bullying his 13-year-old boy in Lanaudière has resonated as far as Saguenay, as a father from the Gion region who sees his daughter being bullied also says, he is the end of his resources.

Many denounce that the school system protects bullies more than their victims.

“We are so neglected and feel so helpless that sometimes it is the only solution we have,” explains the man, who wishes to maintain his anonymity to protect his daughter’s identity.

He knows this is not the right thing to do and believes that intimidation cannot be used to combat intimidation.

But he understands how a father can be at the end of his tether.

“We asked for help everywhere, whether at school or even at the city police station,” he laments. And every time it's the same. They throw the ball to each other.”

Her daughter was abused and locked in lockers for several years.

She was even pushed in front of moving vehicles.

Every school in Quebec has an anti-bullying plan.

“Schools deploy resources and we measure the impact of these resources every one to two years to get a percentage of students who often or always feel safe.” “Curity,” explains the communications coordinator of the Rives-du-Saguenay School Service Center , Louise Noël.

This statistic reached 84% in 2018 and 89% last year, according to surveys carried out in the different establishments of the Rives-du-Saguenay School Service Center.
