LETHBRIDGE: The Alberta government is still going ahead with its new bill that cracks down harder on people who drink and drive, even though similar rules were struck down by the B.C. supreme court.
Justice minister Verlyn Olson said Alberta's proposed changes are different than those in British Columbia. Under the new bill, those caught with a blood alcohol level over .05 - but under .08 - would lose their vehicle and license for three days. A final reading of the bill is expected in time for the holiday season.
Meanwhile, Country 95 News asked you about the changes - and most we talked to were in favour of stricter rules.
