More than 20 years ago, I heard a lawyer telling TV listeners the same story about the unfair rap that drinking drivers get. In those days, they were getting off even more.
Today, this bunk about their rights being taken away is pure baloney. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms cost Canadians billions because we have so many who abuse this Trudeau document.
Too bad if your car is impounded. Tell me why you made the choice to drink and drive. So you have to pay a fine to get your car out of the impound – why did you drink and drive? Voters need to start asking questions. Why do people need to drink until 4 a.m.? If we live in tough times, how can you afford it? Why do so many people have to die every year because stupid drivers don’t care?
I say make it tougher and tougher, then maybe someone’s child can grow up into adulthood. I have worked for and supported MADD for more than 30 years. It’s time drinking drivers pay big time. Give the police the power to save lives. You have no rights if you decide to drink and drive.
