Bill C-46

Police are now able to conduct warrantless roadside searches to compel drivers to provide a breath sample.
Instead of passing potentially unconstitutional criminal laws without research to back them up, perhaps the government should have held off.
More so than legislative changes, education is likely to effectively increase public awareness and decrease instances of drug-impaired driving.
The Friday sitting of the House of Commons was effectively cancelled.
The upper chamber scrapped a provision authorizing random roadside breathalyzer tests.
Debate over the impaired driving Bill C-46 is focused on balancing Charter rights against the need to protect lives. For Senators, the Charter won out.
