Breath test can’t be refused under new drunk-driving law
Yes it is.
Failing a BAC is .08 and above. the .05 is a "warning" which results in a temporary suspension at the discretion of the officer if memory serves.
No it is not.
That's weird, because I gave you information from a criminal defense lawyer's website. I also know degenerates whom have been charged with it.
I can try it from another site if it helps:
Refuse Breath Sample Lawyer - Toronto, Ontario.
Maybe in Ontario but in BC it is a transportation act violation and IRP for 90 days. No criminal charges.
This is from the website of the BC BAR Association:
Key words: they may
Not sure what to say, I have a staff at work who I supervise. He got a failure to provide a breath sample and a 90 day prohibition about 5 years ago. We have since done a criminal record check on him, even an enhanced one for working with vulnerable people and his criminal record came back clean.
Someone close to me refused to provide a few years back. That's what he was going to be charged with until his lawyer said "he'll do the year suspension and pay the fine, but for the love of God this can't show up on his background check or he'll end up unemployed." The crown agreed and allowed him to plead guilty to careless driving with an abnormally stiff sentence. Your employee was probably in a similar situation.
But if he only had a 90 day he wasn't found guilty of refusing to provide. It has the same minimum as dui.
It showed up on his drivers abstract as a failure to provide a breath sample. At the same time his criminal record check was clean.
I don't know what to tell you, but failure to provide is most definitely a criminal charge as per the criminal code.
Looks like the police have the option of going either the route of a motor vehicle infraction and an immediate IRP (without due process) or they can go the route of criminal charges, no IRP until case is settled (due process). Apparently police have been going the IRP route to avoid the case being thrown out as commonly happens with DUI cases.
CBA British Columbia - 190
That's fucking disgusting.
Oh man when this shits legal I’m gonna try it and eat so many chips
I hope the police kick down the doors of every pot smoker in Canada at 11:59 tonight and take them and all their bongs to jail.
So whats the official website to order weed?
The Liberals sure shit the bed on rolling this out.
Great way to re energize Canada Post though. Every pothead has their fingers crossed Postal Canada dont have to strike.

I went to my doctor’s appointment this morning and they were blasting The Spin Doctors in the waiting room. When I finally got to see my doctor, he was so high he could barely stand. I asked him to take a look at my hemaroids and he said “No” and that it would “harsh his buzz”.
You should probably move to the U.S. where it's safe
It took an hour for the first loser to get pulled over for driving while smoking a joint.
I dont think it was the driver who got the ticket, I think it was the passenger. The ticket was for consuming in a vehicle, not driving while impaired. If it was the driver, you would think they would have earned both violations.
