President and CEO of Grafton-Fraser Dave McGregor said the he and the company “took the action we felt to be appropriate” and the man is no longer employed with the company.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of Amanda Todd,” he said. “Our company ethics are based on tolerance, respect and fair and honourable treatment of all individuals, internally, with our customers and the population as a whole. We have zero tolerance for the mistreatment of others no matter what form it takes.”
“We feel that the focus should remain on the issue at hand which is bullying and how we work together to stop it. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Todd family.”
Calgary mother Christine Claveau told Global News she alerted the company to the posting.
