Impaired and “Over 80”
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.
l What are the new provisions and how do they
differ from the provisions they replace?
l What is the new screening regime for drugs and
l 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?
l Does the new sentencing grid, tied to blood
alcohol content, violate the Charter?
