TORONTO, March 4 /CNW/ - Microsoft Canada has been dedicated to addressing issues of online safety for the past decade.

As founder of the Mothers Online Movement, a community that advocates for the rights of victims and raises funds and awareness of the issue of online child exploitation, Paula is engaged in these issues and can speak to the following:

    -   Explain the need for government policy and legislation that address
        issues relating to online child exploitation and safety.
