In Vancouver, a tour bus driver caught a man on his dashcam in a shocking road rage attack. Kristen Robinson from Global BC News Hour at 6 explains what happened. The driver spat on the window of the tour bus after he was unable to park where the bus was stopped. Vancouver criminal driving lawyer Kyla Lee explains whether this exposes him to potential criminal charges.
Vancouver lawyer Kyla Lee joined the Jill Bennett show this morning to talk about a new legal development in the distracted driving law. This is a case involving a man who had an immobilizer app on his phone that prevented it from being used while driving. The BC Court of Appeal has now agreed to hear the prosecution's appeal of his acquittal.
Kyla Lee appeared on the Simi Sara Show, guest hosted by Mike Smyth, to talk about liability waivers in British Columbia and why they are so inherently unfair.
Kyla Lee spoke with Global News at 6 about the importance of updating court practices to make them digital friendly and more accessible to court users who are out of town or unavailable.
After the release of the Report on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry final report, Kyla Lee spoke with Lynda Steele about the report, its recommendations, and why it is important to use the term "genocide" to call out the behaviour of government, police, and the justice system.
Kyla Lee spoke with GlobalBC reporter Kristen Robinson about the issue of day parole, which can be sought earlier than regular parole ineligibility periods. The family of a murdered Vancouver Island teenager is outraged that her killers are now able to apply for early release, only seven years into their sentence. Day parole is an important aspect of the justice system and rehabilitation, but there is really no restriction on who can apply for it upon becoming eligible to request it. This can mean that families of victims of crime, and the victims themselves in some cases, can be retraumatized by these requests and by having to relive the nightmares they went through.
