BC May Change New Drunk Driving Laws

BC\’s newly appointed solicitor-general, Rich Coleman, has announced a review of the province\’s much-publicized \”tough drunk driving laws\” which were introduced less than 2 months ago. Coleman indicated that the new laws were having \”unintended consequences\” on bars and restaurants. As has been widely reported, the new laws have caused a significant drop in liquor sales at bars, restaurants and wineries. Coleman is also the minister responsible for the Liquor Distribution Branch whose sales would also be affected by a drop in consumption and upon which the province relies for about $900 million worth of annual liquor tax.
