We Can Make It Better Together
(TORONTO, ON) – Premier Dalton McGuinty delivered a simple message to Ontario students who are bullied or feel alone: it gets better, and we can make it better, together.
The Premier met students at L’Amoreaux Collegiate Institute in Toronto, where he also released his “It Gets Better” video, which encourages students, teachers, parents and community members to do their part to help end bullying and intolerance.
New legislation, to be introduced today would, if passed, help make Ontario schools safer and more accepting places to learn by proposing:
- Tougher consequences for bullying and hate-motivated actions — up to, and including, expulsion
- Requiring all schools to support any students who want to lead activities that promote understanding, acceptance and respect for all.
- Requiring school boards to develop policies and guidelines that include greater supports for students.
