Media requests

My name is Pam Lasuita, I'm a story researcher with CTV in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. A while back I had requested to correspond with people who had experienced Workplace Bullying. I want to let you know that we will be airing  a 3-5 minute feature on Workplace Bullies on the 6 pm news on Thurs November 10. It will be broadcast on CTV Edmonton, Channel 2 locally, and on Star Choice Channel 318 and Bell Express Vu Channel 77. (For those interested, you can also purchase a copy of the story, however it's $70 or $30 for a non-profit society. Call the switchboard at 780-483-3311). Thank you so much to all of you for sharing your most personal experiences. I really appreciate the time and effort people took to get back to me. I was overwhelmed by the positive responses from across the country, and inspired by the strength, courage and determination of so many. Thanks also to the Bully OnLine website; we couldn't have done the feature without their help. I hope by broadcasting this story it will open up the dialogue on Workplace Bullying in Canada even more.
