"OTTAWA -- The Supreme Court of Canada is upholding procedures that permit shortcuts for allowing a motorist's breathalyzer test results into evidence -- even in cases where demanding the breath sample may have been unlawful."
"Legislation allowing alcohol testing of drivers without prior suspicion tabled on Parliament Hill
If Bill C-46 is passed into law, “police officers who have an approved screening device on hand would be able to test any driver they lawfully stop, even if the officer does not suspect the driver has alcohol in his or her body,” the federal justice department states on its website."
I understand that police can stop anyone operating a motor vehicle and I am OK with that.
But i don't want to see our rights eroded by stealth
Just to be clear.......you are aware we can demand an ASD already without reasonable grounds to believe you're impaired right? Reasonable suspicion and reasonable grounds are two very different things and suspicion is all that is required for an ASD demand whereas reasonable grounds are what's required to make an arrest.
Either way......no police officer anywhere is going to waste their time administering an ASD if there's no reason to think a person will fail. There is absolutely no benefit to me by making you blow into an ASD that I know you'll pass.
