Drunk Driving Penalties
Original Air Date:
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Starting July 1 new penalties will be introduced under changes to the province’s drunk driving laws. A driver with a blood alcohol level of .08 will be charged under the criminal code, will receive an immediate license suspension and the driver’s vehicle will be seized. Changes are also in place for those with a graduated driver’s license, they will receive a 30-day license suspension and a seven-day vehicle seizure.
After a forensic audit by KMPG, it was discovered that there were at least 65 cases of possible abuse within the Scouts Canada ranks that weren’t reported to authorities. Scouts Canada says that those cases have now been passed along to authorities. The review also found 64 files which were unclear if they had been passed over to the authorities. In 73 per cent of the cases, authorities knew of the cases of abuse and either reported them to Scouts Canada or the organization alerted police.
With us on the Crime Panel is Fred Rayner, Former Edmonton Police Chief and President of Rayner Consulting; Jason Van Rassel, Justice and Social Issues Reporter with the Calgary Herald; and Michael Bates, Defence Lawyer.
