Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter is meeting with the prime minister on Tuesday to talk about changes to the Criminal Code of Canada in light of the death of Rehtaeh Parsons.

On Friday Justice Minister Ross Landry said he wants the federal government to make distributing intimate images against someone's wishes a crime.

He'll be meeting with his federal counterpart a day after Dexter meets with Stephen Harper.

It's the government's latest response to the death of Rehtaeh Parsons, 17, who was taken off life support on April 7 after trying to kill herself a few days earlier.

According to Rehtaeh's mother, four boys sexually assaulted her daughter when she was 15 years old. Rehtaeh was then said to have been mocked by classmates, enduring relentless harassment and humiliation after a photo of the attack was circulated at her school and on social media.

Police investigated, but no charges were laid.

“The hearts of Nova Scotians and all Canadians are broken over what happened to the Parsons family," wrote Dexter in a release.

"They also remain angry and expect laws to be in place that hold people who bully and victimize others accountable."

Landry said he has reached out to his provincial counterpart to build support. The premier's office said Saskatchewan Justice Minister Gordon Wyant has already responded saying his province supports Nova Scotia's efforts.
