Anne Lagacé-Dowson: Prominent journalist takes up anti-bullying cause

Even though one of Montreal's most respected journalists decided to step out of the media spotlight and head a non-profit organization, it's not the last you'll hear from Anne Lagacé-Dowson.

Recently named director-general at Tolerance Foundation, a group of educators teaching students about the effects of bullying, Lagacé-Dowson first became an anti-bullying advocate when she found out her daughter was being teased by her classmates.
