‘For the love of God do something’: Rehtaeh Parsons’ father issues emotional call to action after daughter killed by ‘disappointment’
Rehtaeh Parsons’s heart was so big, sometimes it scared her dad.

A defender of the downtrodden, Parsons was quick to hand out spare change and stand up for neglected animals.

Glen Canning prepared for the worst for his daughter after she was allegedly raped, but hoped he’d never have to face it.

Amid the angry noise generated by thousands of people around the world seeking justice for a Nova Scotia teenager, who was removed from life support on Sunday after attempting suicide a few days earlier, is the voice of a father in agony over the loss of his child.

In a heartbreaking entry posted to his personal website, Canning remembers his daughter and lambasts the justice system he says failed to help her.

“The worst nightmare of my life has just begun. I loved my beautiful baby with all my heart,” Canning writes. “She meant everything to me. I felt her heart beating in my soul from the moment she was born until the moment she died. We were a team. We were best pals.”

Canning explains how he watched his daughter suffer from repeated disappointment.

“My daughter wasn’t bullied to death, she was disappointed to death. Disappointed in people she thought she could trust, her school, and the police,” he writes. (GlenCanning.com)
