A controversial bill has been proclaimed into law.


Bill-18 allows Manitoba schools to have more power when dealing with bullying and cyberbullying.                                            


The new bill forces schools to report and act on cyberbullying incidents if they take place inside or outside of school, regardless of what time of day.


It also expands policies relating to Internet use in schools, which includes social media sites like Facebook or Twitter.
