Regarding Michale Spratt’s column New impaired driving law will target minorities.
Bill C-45’s probably the most draconian law that I’ve witnessed in my many years. I want police to act vigorously when they see or hear of someone breaking the law or acting in a suspicious manner, but to give the police the power to disrupt a citizen with no cause is beyond reasonable.
Democracy took a terrible tumble when this became law. It’s difficult to even understand the next part of the law that Spratt explains: “it is now also an offence to be impaired within two hours after operating a vehicle”. This makes no sense whatsoever. Who were the dictators in the making of this law? I’ve voting power – I will use it, and I encourage any and all to do the same. Maria Benham Arva
