Thank you very much.
I'd like to welcome the minister and all these members of the Department of Justice. I thank you for your appearance today.
There's quite a bit in this piece of legislation. I wonder if you could explain it again for me and for the committee with respect to the mandatory testing. As you've pointed out correctly, the law now is that the courts have upheld the right of police officers to stop people and check with them for their insurance or make sure their licence is up to date. At that time, after they've stopped that individual, if they believe the person is impaired, they are entitled to demand a breath test.
In your description of how this new regime would take place, would it be the same regime in which they're stopping the individuals on a regular basis to check their insurance or their licence, or would the sole purpose of stopping these people be to test for impaired driving? You seem to say that it's both of them. If they have a lawful reason to stop the person, which has been decided, in that they can check on things like your insurance and licence, is the next step, then, that they can or will have the mandatory testing, or are you suggesting and is this bill saying that you can be by the roadside and just start pulling people over, and it's strictly about alcohol and has nothing to do with licences or insurance?
