Kyla Lee on Vancouver Sun

Ten years ago, a close friend of Vancouver City Coun. Pete Fry suffered a serious head injury in a car accident. “I saw the impacts of a head injury and what that does, not just for the individual, but also the people who care about them,” said Fry. On Tuesday, Fry is moving for the city to pilot a 30 km/h speed limit on residential streets in an effort to reduce vehicle-related injuries and fatalities. ...

Kyla Lee Calls for the Law Society of B.C. to Do More to Address Money Laundering

Acumen Lawyers Answer the Issue that the Draeger Device they Tested Isn’t the Same Device Used by Canadian Police

On May 6, Canadian media–including The GrowthOp–breathlessly reported that lawyers at Acumen Law had tested the federally approved Drager DrugTest 5000, which subsequently showed false positives for opioids, cocaine and other drugs after subjects consumed benign items such as Tim Hortons’ poppyseed cake, CBD extract and a particular tea. Vancouver lawyers Kyla Lee and Paul Doroshenko made headlines with allegations that 17 minutes after eating a piece of the cake, Doroshenko tested positive for opioids. There’s a problem, though: Draeger representatives are saying the device tested by Lee and Doroshenko isn’t the same device used by Canadian law enforcement officials. ...

Paul Doroshenko on The Tyee

A drug-testing device approved last fall turns back positive test results for opiates after merely eating a substance that has so far never faced legal sanctions in Canada: a poppy seed muffin from Tim Hortons. The Dräger DrugTest 5000 was approved by the justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to help combat impaired driving. But the approach has received criticism from those who question its reliability and the level of intrusion. “I had heard the rumours, but I had no idea if they were legit,” Paul Doroshenko, a lawyer at Acumen Law in Vancouver told The Tyee, about the idea to try the machine...

Kyla Lee on Radio NL

A lawyer with Acumen Law is wondering when ICBC will fill in the big void of information ahead of this fall’s major changes to how auto insurance works. Kyla Lee says ICBC has an obligation to inform British Columbians well ahead of September 1st when ICBC will change from insuring the vehicle to insuring the driver. Not to mention an overhaul of how the safe drivers discount is calculated. “I think everybody should be getting that information with at least three months warning before their insurance is due. So that they have time to save up money if they are going to pay...
