In its recent throne speech, the provincial government promised to introduce "significant changes" that will "reduce impaired and dangerous driving." But it looks like the government isn't expecting that initiative to have much of an impact. According to the ministry of public safety and solicitor general's service plan, the government is targeting a 3 percent reduction in the number of traffic fatalities and injuries in the coming fiscal years. But that's exactly the same target the government had in September - five months before its throne speech announcement. Fancy that!
