NAT111 - (Mba-Weight-Discrimination) WINNIPEG. x-14s. Manitoba's Progressive Conservative government appears set to kill a Liberal bill that would ban discrimination on the basis of weight and body size. Liberal legislature member Jon Gerrard introduced a private member's bill proposing to add weight and size protection to the province's human rights code. He says he had hoped for government support. ("..tall or short.") (SOURCE:The Canadian Press)

TAG: The governing Tories allowed the bill to go to public hearings this week, but have now voted against bringing it back to the legislature chamber to be passed into law. Unless the government changes its mind in the next week, the bill will be terminated.
