Newfoundland and Labrador's finance minister says she has been repeatedly attacked online with death threats, body shaming and bullying -- and it must stop. Cathy Bennett is also the minister responsible for women, and says she hopes other people will speak out against cyber abuse.

(One message Bennett received said:"All Newfoundlanders should put a bounty on her head.")
