    Episode 105: Special guest Brandon Moscoe

    On this week's podcast with Kyla Lee and Paul Doroshenko, a story about people in Ontario posing as police to enforce COVID-19 social distancing measures prompts more discussion.

    After ICBC cancelled roadtests in light of the pandemic, is there some other way to clear the backlog of people trying to get their licences?

    Also, could ICBC be doing more to lower people's vehicle insurance as people use their vehicles less during the outbreak?

    Acumen Law's Brandon Moscoe joins the podcast to talk about whether motor-assisted cycles are technically motor vehicles as well as cell phone legislation in B.C.

    Episdoe 104: Mass shooting in Nova Scotia, arbitrary detention, bail in light of COVID-19

    Tragic news of the largest mass murder in Canada's history shocked the world this week.

How was he able to do this and what are some of the regulations around acquiring police vehicles. Kyla Lee and Paul Doroshenko find out.

    A Court of Appeal decision about a driver who was boxed in by police raises some interesting discussion around arbitrary detention.

Incredibly informative and accessible

Kyla and occasional co-host Paul are incredibly informed and experienced when it comes to law’s related to driving. They provide information in plain English rather than lawyer-speak. They present all sides of an issue so that the listener is informed and can draw their own conclusion about the issues.

I particularly appreciate that they state their position on the issues (with supporting information). Many podcasts are informative but kinda vanilla when it comes to their position. Not the case here! They are respectful and professional and principled. Love it!

Very Interesting and Educational

I really enjoy listening to this podcast and I learn something new every time I listen to it. Also, I’m a law student at the U of S so it’s not just the UBC law students listening!
