Couillard wants tougher laws to fight bullying

Along with better protection for victims of elder abuse and conjugal violence

Quebec Liberal leader Philippe Couillard was at a martial arts centre in Saint-Michel Wednesday morning presenting his party's priorities when it comes to bullying and violence.

Couillard said if he's elected, in his first 100 days in power, he'll put a forum together that will address bullying.

He said he wants to expand Bill 56, the anti-bullying law passed in 2012, and make bullies do community service.

He also wants to create laws that would protect people who report elder abuse from losing their jobs.

"Employment, health care, education, vulnerable people that is what we are here to do, not breaking up the country or dividing Quebecers," Couillard said.

He also wants better protection for women and children who are victims of conjugal violence and in shelters.
