Driving Law: Episode 50

This week on the Driving Law podcast, I speak with Paul Doroshenko about the new BC Government report into ride-hailing services. The Report has several recommendations, but the most interesting aspect of it is Transportation Minister Claire Trevana’s insistence that drivers obtain a Class 4 license before being permitted to drive an Uber or other ride-sharing vehicle. Paul and I discuss the pitfalls of this and whether this is actually a blessing in disguise.

Then, we share the story of our recent cross-border excursion to purchase the entire surplus stock of Intox EC/IR and EC/IR II breathalyzer instruments from the state of Illinois, why we did it, and what we intend to do next. I also present Paul with a few of the mean Tweets and comments made about our decision, and we respond directly.

I’m also pleased to announce that the Driving Law podcast is now part of the Cannabis Media Collective!

Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t! Episode 63

This week on Cases That Should Have Gone to the Supreme Court of Canada, But Didn’t! we examine the issue of search and seizure, but in the context of cannabis legalization. We look at a case involving a man who invited police into his residence after a 911 call, and the discovery of a cannabis trafficking operation. This would have been an opportunity for the Supreme Court of Canada to revisit some very old, and perhaps outdated, privacy laws surrounding disconnected 911 calls and entry into homes.
