It’s been almost eight years since an innocent man was fatally stabbed by a stranger on a Kelowna city bus. Tyler Jack Newton was convicted of manslaughter and served time in prison before being released and charged with more offences. Now as Kristen Robinson reports, he’s been released from custody again.

“Because there’s no suggestion of reoffending and no suggestion that he would leave the jurisdiction, bail would be granted. This isn’t a clear case where bail being imposed for some aggravated assault charges would not be abnormal in the circumstances.”

Driving while under the influence of marijuana… is it the same as impaired driving?

When it comes to driving with alcohol in your system, in British Columbia as well as with the rest of Canada, there are certain limits you must stay below in order for it to be legal for you to operate a motor vehicle.

When a person drinks alcohol, with every drink they have, they become more inebriated and as a result, their motor skills degrade. By this we mean, they have less control over their movements, over their words and overall, how they act. When someone is in an impaired state, not only is it dangerous to get behind the wheel of a car, but it is also illegal.

What types of disclosure can I get for my traffic ticket case?

There’s a lot of talk on the internet about disclosure in a traffic ticket case. Disclosure is required to be provided by the Crown upon request in a traffic ticket case, but what types of disclosure you get may surprise you.

The Crown’s duty, as a result of a Supreme Court of Canada case called Stinchcombe, is to disclose all the relevant material in its possession. This includes all things that may prove your guilt or vice versa, things that could prove your innocence.
