Ontario's Bill 14 - Anti-Bullying Act, 2012

Today's Toronto Star published an article on Bill 14, Anti-Bullying Act, 2012, now sitting in Committee after second reading. Submissions are being presented to Committee and the Ontario Principals’ Council (OPC) put forth a submission questioning the definition of bullying behaviour as "aggressive". The OPC is concerned that such a restrictive lens on the act of bullying will handcuff them from "addressing the passive, subtle and insidious bullying that can be just as debilitating".

For more detail read the full OPC submission.
