Kyla Lee on Charles Adler Tonight about Impaired Canoeing

Vancouver impaired driving lawyer Kyla Lee appeared on the Charles Adler show to discuss the issue of impaired canoeing. A recent conviction involving a man who was in a canoe accident led to the court having to interpret whether a person can get an impaired driving charge while in a canoe. What really bugs me about the decision, which did find that a canoe is a vessel and therefore an impaired driving charge is possible, is that there is nothing to distinguish a canoe from a bicycle. The same public safety risk exists, the same human-powered propulsion exists, and yet you cannot be criminally charged for impaired bicycling.
