In Montreal, a customer accused of driving his vehicle in a manner that is dangerous to the public, contrary to section 249(1)a) (2) b) of the Criminal Code, was granted an absolute discharge despite the fact that the prosecutor did not agree to make a joint submission to the judge. Indeed, after lengthy sentencing submissions, the judge granted an absolute discharge taking into account the client’s job as an airport security guard. The client was able to keep his job as he was deemed not to have been convicted of the charges against him.
