In Impaired Driving in Canada, 6th Edition, The Honourable Mr. Justice Joseph F. Kenkel analyzes every step of the impaired driving case, from the roadside stop through to sentencing. This book provides coverage of an offence where, according to one Parliamentarian, "every word and every comma in every section has been litigated", and is an indispensable companion for all members of the criminal law bar and bench.
This new edition follows its predecessors by canvassing all of the recent decisions that have changed the law in this area, with careful summaries that put the essential quotes from the most important cases at your fingertips.
