The Canadian Criminal Code defines criminal harassment as:

  • Repeatedly following from place to place the other person or anyone known to them
  • Repeatedly communicating with, either directly or indirectly, the other person or anyone known to them
  • Besetting or watching the dwelling-house, or place where the other person, or anyone known to them, resides, works, carries on business or happens to be
  • Engaging in threatening conduct directed at the other person or member of their family.

This sort of behaviour is not a sign of love; it is power and abuse. Please call police and tell us what is happening. Your safety is our top priority.
