Booze on the brain An Ontario driver arrested this week allegedly had almost 4.5 times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood, raising questions about the causes and effects of such extreme intoxication. The Post’s Tom Blackwell gets to the bottom of the issue.
It might at that. And drunk driving is certainly a serious issue that Canadian governments and courts have traditionally not taken seriously enough. Too often we hear about someone being killed by a drunk driver with numerous prior convictions that had only ever received a slap on the wrist. More should be done to address the threat posed by drunk drivers. But the appropriate response to this continuing societal problem is stiffer punishment and better rehabilitation of those found guilty, not the shaming of those who are still presumed innocent.
