Justice Joesph Kenkel asserts the majority of drinking and driving cases involve a charter application.  As such, we strongly encourage you to stop by the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library to check out Impaired Driving in Canada: The Charter Cases, 2nd EditionLexisNexis describes the item on its website,

The “typical drinking and driving trial almost always includes a Charter application alleging numerous breaches, and consideration of that application will often occupy two-thirds of the time spent on the case.” That fact alone makes this text an invaluable resource for defence counsel, Crown counsel and judges dealing with the ongoing challenge that impaired driving cases and the Charter present. You’ll refer to this book over and over to determine the best way to approach the legal issues that apply to your particular fact situation.

Please stop by the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library in Regina if you are interested in checking this item out.  This item is in print at KF 2231 K331 2014.
