  • Jeffrey Milligan
    Barrister and Solicitor

When it comes into force, Bill C-46 will dramatically overhaul the impaired driving provisions of the Criminal Code. Judges, Crowns, and defense counsel will undertake an exhaustive review of the sweeping changes, as well as the possible constitutional objections to the new legislation and the arguments the Crown could make to rebut those objections.

  • What are the new provisions and how do they differ from the provisions they replace?
  • What is the new screening regime for drugs and for alcohol?
  • How will intoxilyzer results be treated? Does deeming intoxilyzer results "conclusive" proof reverse the onus of proof? Is this a violation of s.7 of the Charter?
  • Will the elimination of the evidence to the contrary and bolus drinking defenses survive court scrutiny?
  • What are the new fines and sanctions for a conviction?
  • Does the new sentencing grid, tied to blood alcohol content, violate the Charter?
