On Tuesday, Guelph mom and anti-bullying activist Lynne MacIntyre is to appear before council's Community and Social Services Committee.
According to a letter sent to the mayor and council, she will be seeking "a member of council to be an active member on a newly-formed group: The Guelph Anti-Bullying Coalition."
The coalition is made up of representatives from multiple community partners including the Upper Grand District School Board , the Gueph Police and the John Howard Society.
MacIntyre has made public that her son has been the victim of repeated incidents of bullying in the city. Last year, a poem he wrote about his struggles touched people across the city and well beyond it too.
