Driving Law with Kyla Lee: Episode 37

This week on the Driving Law Podcast, I speak with the authors of the new impaired driving textbook, Impaired Driving and Other Criminal Code Driving Offences: A Practitioner’s Handbook, Peter Keen and Karen Jokinen. We discuss some of the more nuanced aspects of C-46, including the rationale behind some of the major changes and the potential for constitutional challenge. It is a must-listen for impaired driving practitioners.

This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we look at what is possibly the best Florida story thus far, complete with an appearance by one of my favorite childhood cartoons.

What You Need To Know About Canada’s Proposed Edible Cannabis Regulations

On December 20, 2018, the Federal Government revealed its proposed regulations for phase two of cannabis legalization: edibles, including beverages; extracts; and topical cannabis.

Driving Law with Kyla Lee: Episode 36

This week on the Driving Law Podcast, I speak with Attorney General for British Columbia, David Eby, about how driving law has impacted his role as the Attorney General.

Weird and Wacky Wednesdays: Volume Thirty Guest Post

One common concern that comes to mind each week when I read Weird and Wacky Wednesdays is why. Why would someone think climbing a tree would help them avoid the long arm of the law? Why would police officers from two separate precincts trying to arrest each other not realize they were all cops undercover? Why do so many of these stories originate from Florida?
 
Well dear friends, this week you can add to that list, why would Kyla Lee invite me, Paul Doroshenko to write this week’s episode of Weird and Wacky Wednesdays? The answer, however, is fairly simple. Kyla wanted to help me understand the “why.” So here I am. Your guest blog posters, trying hard to understand the decisions made by humans. Let’s start with our first human in trouble, Mr. John Casford.

BC Government Quietly Introduces Massive Overhaul to 24 Hour Prohibitions for Drugs

At a time when everyone was distracted by cannabis legalization and the impending changes to the Criminal Code to allow random breath testing, the BC Government quietly enacted some changes to the Motor Vehicle Act to make it harder to dispute a 24 hour for drugs.

​These changes deserve attention and explanation. Because as a result of cannabis legalization, it is inevitable that more people will be facing 24 hour prohibitions from driving.

Weird and Wacky Wednesdays: Volume Twenty Nine

This week on Weird and Wacky Wednesdays, we address three unusual cases. The first involves what was perhaps the humble beginnings of the greatest bowl of mashed potatoes of all time. The second involves what was perhaps the awful beginnings of the worst bowl of Rice Krispies of all time. And the third involves what was perhaps the humble beginnings of a beautiful and loving relationship. Oh, probably not.

Tune in to find out why all of these are part of what is definitely not the worst week of Weird and Wacky Wednesdays of all time!
