Wow, reason in the court system. Who knew!

Wow, can't believe the court system didn't screw him over... I wouldn't have wanted to walk a mile in his shoes, but be damned, hopefully this precedent stands for future trials.
I've spent a few nights sleeping it off in my car after a night of boozing. Pretty shitty knowing i could have gotten a DUI for being responsible.

I dont understand ? A Quebec judge used logic and made a realistic ruling
< spell chequer is totally bustimacated >
at least most of the younger generation no longer find it socially acceptable to drive drunk (judging from the behaviour of my son and daughter and their friends). when I look back at some of the escapades of my youth, I shudder! we were simply shit-for-brains...
and kudos to our Supreme Court, altho why the case had to get dragged 'all the way' is a bit vexing. I presume this just needed to 'go all the way' so as to establish precedent, which is very important to how Canada's legal system functions. now, with the precedent in place, 'reason' ought to be applied in the future, if not by the police 'on site', then by the prosecutors. when the time comes to decide whether to press charges or not, without a likelihood of conviction, similar cases will get dropped.
In preparing for battle, I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensible.
Also, hope the kid didn't blow >0.5%. That's a lot of booze 10x over the limit!
Thats stupid. If people are not operating their vehicles, they shouldn't be charged.. period.
What I don't get is was it the designated driver that showed up who called it in? WTF is that about. What the hell does that dipshit think he's there for. Way to fulfill your mission. I'm sure everyone now knows not to ever call those guys.
^ no kidding?! if i were the 'drunk' i would in turn sue the 'unwilling-designated-driver' for not providing a service as contracted for. judging by the outcome of many frivolous cases i would probably have a good chance to win it too.

Some dude was at an apartment with a woman drinking until the early hours.
She ended up calling him a DD service to take him home.
If it was a friend, don't you think you'd let them sleep it off... or stay on the couch?
I don't expect a bar pickup to cook me breakfast, but I've never ran into this before. Historically speaking, at least you get ridden like a wild pony. At minimum a BJ. You may reciprocate... this is good form.
