Petitioning Lena Metlege Diab and 1 other

Prevent prosecution of those who use Rehtaeh Parsons' name in connection with the charges against her attackers.

Dear, Ms Metlege Diab, As  Attorney General of Nova Scotia, you have the power to order the Public  Prosecution Service of Nova Scotia to not prosecute any violations of  the publication ban in the Rehtaeh Parsons case. Most Nova Scotians do  not want this ban. We want to use her name freely in some important  discussions we are having about sexual consent, cyber-bullying and  suicide prevention.    Please  do not prosecute the Chronicle Herald. Please issue a pronouncement  saying you will not prosecute people who publish Rehtaeh's name in  connection with the court case.    This  ban does not protect her. It silences her. Please do the right thing.  If you can't be convinced that this is the right thing, then follow the votes. This will be the most popular decision you will ever make.    As Nova Scotia’s first female Attorney General and Minister of Justice you are no stranger to setting prescedent. As a mother you have a responsibility to make Rehtaeh's story, her whole story an open and effective conversation in Nova Scotia, and Canada.
