Vancouver impaired driving lawyer Kyla Lee appeared on the Charles Adler show last night to talk about the federal approval of the Abbott SoToxa, a drug testing device designed to detect THC in the system.

Vancouver impaired driving lawyer Kyla Lee appeared on the Charles Adler show to discuss the issue of impaired canoeing. A recent conviction involving a man who was in a canoe accident led to the court having to interpret whether a person can get an impaired driving charge while in a canoe. What really bugs me about the decision, which did find that a canoe is a vessel and therefore an impaired driving charge is possible, is that there is nothing to distinguish a canoe from a bicycle. The same public safety risk exists, the same human-powered propulsion exists, and yet you cannot be criminally charged for impaired bicycling.

I also come clean about my own challenge to the law in BC, and we talk about whether the random breath testing provisions will survive scrutiny.
Then, in the second half of our interview, Shane and I talk about recent statistics from Edmonton Police that show an increase in cannabis impaired driving arrests... but are they really what they seem?
