ere’s a thought: does anyone really think
that police officers with years of experi-
ence are so inept as to make as many as
four separate violations of the Canadian Charter
of Rights and Freedoms in a single drunk-driv-
ing arrest?
Or is it time for lawmakers to review how
drinking and driving convictions are obtained,
and clearly spell out the process, especially when
courts are taxed for time, and lengthy and de-
tailed court cases are being thrown out for taking
too long to come to court.
If you review any province’s court case for
drunk driving, you notice one thing pretty
quickly: defence lawyers throw up any Charter
objection they can to the arrest of their clients,
and each one has to be argued.
Two June cases in Ontario make the point
clearly, where two different drivers made four
