In Dalton McGuinty’s Ontario…

December 8th, 2009
daltons-ontarioIf you’re having a few drinks and decide you want a smoke, it’s against the Smoke Free Ontario Act to light up in the bar, but it’s public drunkenness if you step outside to light up.
Update:  We were at Hanc’s for karaoke night,” he said, indicating he had perhaps consumed six or seven beers over a three-hour period — “too many to get into my car and drive, yes, but in no way was I drinking out of a brown paper bag either.”We was just standing there, waiting for our designated driver service,” he says. “And they pulled up at the same time the cops pulled up — in three separate cruisers, for crying out loud, at 12:30 in the morning, with no one else on the street.

“You’d think we had robbed a bank.”

    Based on the column, I don’t know how the two people were behaving. If they were standing in a dark parking lot just waiting, I don’t think they should have been charged with public intoxication. If they are hootin’, hollerin’, and screaming while intaxicated, then I think they could be charged. Then again, I don’t know what the legal definition of non-driving intoxication is. Is it the same as drinking while driving? 0.08?

    I just noticed “intaxicated.” Does it mean “not being in the confines of a taxi?” Or does it mean “being unable to pay taxes through alternative taxable means?”

    Dalton has destroyed the hospitality industry, there is no going back. Write off another sector of the economy, more job losses and less tax revenue.
    Dalton’s Ontario will only allow government run casinos.

    Would a Mohawk enjoying a smoke and a beer in occupied Caledonia, be arrested for public intoxication? Just wondering.
