Prime Minister Stephen Harper has touched down in Winnipeg today to participate in a roundtable discussion on how to protect youth from cyberbullying.

The meeting was closed to reporters. Harper's entourage only allowed photographers to a brief photo-op at the Canadian Centre for Child Protection office on Academy Road earlier today and a second photo-op at the downtown Winnipeg hotel.

Event organizers said some roundtable participants may meet with reporters later this afternoon.
