Province cancels dozens of IRPs due to RCMP mistakes

Province cancels dozens of IRPs due to RCMP mistakes

Province cancels IRPs

The provincial government has quietly cancelled over 70 roadside suspensions after learning RCMP had been using incorrect gas to calibrate their breathalyzers.

It’s policy that they use certified gas and they were not.

The government’s been doing everything to keep this in the can,” he tells us.

These details were obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

It’s 70 pages of correspondence between staff with the Ministry of Justice and the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles, discussing how they will tell the people affected and what the minister should say to the media if asked.

It includes a copy of the letter sent to 39 drivers in Tofino, 15 in Williams Lake, five in Agassiz, and and 13 more in Vernon who had their roadside suspensions cancelled.

Paul Doroshenko, the lawyer who made the request, believes these cases are just a handful of examples of a bigger problem.

“The only reason it’s happening is because we started poking around and they’ve realized that they’ve got a problem and realized, ‘Oh my goodness, this is a bigger problem.’ The government’s been doing everything to keep this in the can,” he tells us.
