Jody Vance has dealt with harassment for most of her career as a broadcast journalist, but starting in 2015 one of her harassers was different, constantly sending hateful, vile emails. When COVID hit, the problem only got worse as the harasser started targeting more of her guests and B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry. Who was this person and how do you bring an anonymous online tormentor to justice?
On March 10, 2023, after seven years of vitriolic emails, Jody finally had her day in court and faced her harasser.
