This past week, the Middelaer family is again in the news. Not only were the announcements made about the winners of the Alexa's Team Awards - a foolish way to encourage sloppy policing - but Alexa's Bus was processing impaired drivers over the weekend. Or so the Government would have you believe.
If the British Columbia government spent $300,000 on a Skytrain line that was never used by passengers, citizens would be up in arms about irresponsible government spending. If they fundraised the $300,000 for the Skytrain, and then paid taxpayer money to staff it, maintain it, and ensure that it was functional and operational, the public would be furious.
The same situation exists for Alexa's Bus.
A few months ago, I wrote a post about the biggest failing of BC's drunk driving law. I wrote about how despite the requirement that the adjudicators render decisions 21 days from the date the prohibition was issued, that this did not occur. The Superintendent has said that decisions are routinely rendered in the required time period, but in reality they are not.
In the last few weeks, I have uncovered more evidence about the significance and expansiveness of this problem.
