The outcome of Ms. M’s trial was not only a victory for Ms. M herself, but also for all those detained by the York Regional Police moving forward.
This case showcases the way a criminal charge can drag on, consuming the accused’s life for months, all while the accused is still presumed innocent.
Ms. B had just recently arrived back to Canada. Her plane had only just landed not long before she was stopped by the Ontario R.I.D.E. program as she drove home from the airport. She explained to the officer that she was feeling jetlagged but the officer could smell an odour of alcohol coming from her breath. She was placed under arrest after failing the approved screening device test.
