In 2018, Parliament repealed and replaced all driving provisions of the Criminal Code, in part as a response to the enactment of the Cannabis Act. Impaired Driving and Other Criminal Code Driving Offences: A Practitioner’s Handbook is a comprehensive and balanced guide to this new legislation, designed to assist Crown and defence lawyers, as well as members of the judiciary. It explores all aspects of this area of law, including the different types of offences, the investigation process, provincial procedural differences, trial strategies and issues, sentencing, and ethics.

Much more than a compendium of legislation and case law, this text analyzes the new provisions and relevant cases in context, replete with vital analysis, strategy, and tactical advice. Authors Karen Jokinen and Peter Keen have reviewed and presented these new legislative changes, and they leverage their knowledge and experience to provide a truly practical treatment of the legal issues and constitutional difficulties that surround driving offences.

This is the only text of its kind in Canada, making it a must-have resource for those whose practice encompasses this significant area of criminal law.

This text is Volume 8 in Emond’s Criminal Law Series.
