WINNIPEG - Now that Manitoba has passed its anti-bullying law, the NDP government is looking at more measures that could include protection orders, mandatory penalties and an anonymous tip line.
Bill 18, which was criticized by the Opposition Progressive Conservatives as lacking teeth, was a stepping stone of sorts, Education Minister Nancy Allan said Thursday.
"We believe that Bill 18 is a framework to create safer schools," she said.
"We're going to continue to move forward with our education partners in regards to keeping young people safe."
