A giant pink blanket was unfurled in the Manitoba Legislature Wednesday.
Brandon University's Anti-Bullying Society has been gathering signatures on the blanket for more than a year.
Seven thousand people have signed it so far, and Wednesday, it made a stop at the legislature to mark Pink Shirt Day, a day to raise awareness of bullying in schools.
Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger and other MLA's added their signatures.
Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum said the province will introduce a new 'code of conduct' for schools, outlining clear instructions on how to deal with bullying.
"Depending on circumstance, the code of conduct sets out a series of guidelines on how a principal ought to react," he said. "Among those actions is, of course, a dialogue with parents, talking to students."
