She said she came across the product while watching the Today show on NBC, in which a presenter arranged for the kit to be...

Recently in Victoria, a drunk driver was granted parole after killing an RCMP officer over three years ago. I am speaking with Kyla Lee, a Vancouver Criminal lawyer who is particularly knowledgeable in cases involving drunk driving. … There seems to be a bit of confusion about some of the new regulations especially about breathalyzing. Can police officers just come into your house and demand a breathalyzing test from you? Kyla Lee: “It’s not as simple as them just knocking on the door and demanding a breath sample. They still have to have a reasonable grounds to suspect that you have within the...
