Markita Kaulius

Justice committee  I've been going out to schools and talking to high school students about impaired driving. One of the questions I ask them during my presentation is how many students have either drunk alcohol or smoked marijuana and gotten into a vehicle or driven themselves. I ask them to give

Justice committee  I would like you to take a look at this canvas, please. These are pictures of the families that Families for Justice has been working with. I started with 12 pictures in the first year and added 15 in the second. I added 20 last year, and I added 20 this year. In the six years th

Justice committee  Definitely, the penalties in this new bill are quite a bit lower. There are no mandatory minimums. I've been at this now for six and a half years, almost seven years, and I'm still trying to get something that everybody says should be a no-brainer. This is public safety that peop

Justice committee  I will. Sorry. I just want to get this one part in here. With the legalization of marijuana, research has shown that impaired driving stats rose. In Washington state they rose from 8% in 2013 to 17% in 2014. In Colorado they tripled. From 2005 to 2014 they went from 3.4% to 12.1

Public Safety committee  Our organization gets nothing. We get zero. We do everything on our own dime. We get no funding at all.

Public Safety committee  We don't take donations. We're just trying to change laws and save lives. I say to many people as well that we've already lost our children, but we're trying to change laws to protect yours. It's not for us.

Public Safety committee  I think, as the victims' parents, literally we live this nightmare every single day. Every morning and every night I look down a hallway to a bedroom. All of her things are still there. We live this every single day. One of the hardest things we have seen is that it seems there

Public Safety committee  Can I just comment as well? In B.C., the province that I'm from, in 2010 they implemented what's called the IRP, the immediate roadside prohibition. If an officer suspects that you may be driving impaired, that officer could pull you over and make you blow into a Breathalyzer to

Public Safety committee  Could I also just mention, too, that—and I apologize—none of you got my presentation because it wasn't able to be translated in time. However, you will be getting it, and I ask that you please read it. I had to cut back so much of what I really wanted to say. So, I please beg...i
