In late 2018, Bill C-46 came into force, dramatically transforming how lawyers prosecute and defend those charged with impaired driving offences. Police will now have the power to demand roadside breath samples from drivers regardless of whether they suspect alcohol consumption. Drivers can be charged for failing a breathalyzer test up to two hours after driving. Our presenters go over the changes in detail and describe how the courts have dealt with the new provisions so that you’re fully equipped to handle your busy season.
- What do you say to your (potential) client when they get a call from the police station?
- How have courts dealt with the Bill C-46 provisions regarding presumptions, certificates of an analyst, DREs and rolling logs?
- What are the latest developments regarding the Charter right to a trial within a reasonable time?
