The Public Schools Amendment Act
(Assented to November 3, 1995)
HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows:
Section 231 is repealed and the following is substituted:
No person shall canvass or sell or offer to sell goods, services or merchandise to a teacher or a pupil on school premises without the prior approval of the school board or a designate of the school board.
No person shall
(a) disturb or interrupt a school, a class in a school, or an activity of a school by his or her actions on school premises or in close proximity to school premises; or
(b) trespass on school premises.
A principal or a person authorized by the school board may direct any person to leave school premises who
(a) causes a disturbance or interruption of a kind described in clause (2)(a);
(b) trespasses on school premises; or
(c) is present on school premises for a purpose not reasonably associated with the normal functioning of the school.
A person who is directed to leave school premises under subsection (3)
(a) shall immediately leave the premises; and
(b) if the person has been given an oral or written notice to that effect by the principal or person authorized by the school board, shall not enter on school premises again except with the prior approval of the principal or authorized person.
The principal or a person authorized by the school board may, in order to maintain order on school premises or to enforce a notice given under clause (4)(b), require adequate assistance from a peace officer.
A person who contravenes this section is guilty of an offence and is liable on summary conviction,
(a) in the case of an offence under subsection (1), to a fine of not more than $1,000.; and
(b) in the case of an offence under subsection (2) or (4), to a fine of not more than $5,000.
When a person is convicted of an offence under subsection (2) or (4), the court may, in addition to imposing a fine, make an order having one or both of the following effects:
(a) prohibiting the person from entering or being on the school premises in respect of which the offence was committed;
(b) requiring the person to comply with any conditions the court considers appropriate in the circumstances for securing the person's good conduct and for preventing the person from repeating the same offence or committing other offences.
This Act comes into force on the day it receives royal assent.
