Most Canadians won't stop act of cyberbullying: survey

A new survey suggests many Canadians who see someone being cyberbullied will not step in to stop it.

The Ipsos survey found that of the more than one-in-three Canadians who said they have witnessed cyberbullying, only one-third helped someone who was being attacked.

The Canadian Red Cross finds the results concerning, given research that finds bullying usually stops within 10 seconds when a bystander steps in.

The organization is encouraging teachers, parents and students to talk about bullying as school begins for another year.
