This presentation discusses the implications of the change in wording of a refusal charge under section 320.15 of the Criminal Code. The presentation examines the elements of a refusal charge and what the Crown needs to prove. It identifies the conflicting lines of jurisprudence related to proof of mens rea, and it explores what may be constituted as a reasonable excuse for non-compliance.
