Nova Scotia drivers have a more transparent way to appeal certain licence suspensions and vehicle impoundments. The new Motor Vehicle Appeal Board addresses a point made in the provincial ombudsman’s report last year. “We listened to what Nova Scotia drivers were saying about the fairness of appealing to the same person who issued a licence suspension,” said John MacDonell, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations. “Putting these checks and balances in place to give people a chance to have appeals heard is essential, and this new board gives Nova Scotians a process that is timely, objective and independent.” Eight respected members of Nova Scotia’s legal community were appointed today, Oct. 24, to the board. Terrance Sheppard (chair), Dartmouth; Krista Daley, Halifax; Lena Diab, Halifax; Robert Kennedy, Halifax; Harvey McPhee, Sydney; Blair Mitchell, Halifax; Stephen Scott, Bedford; and Robert Stewart, Berwick were appointed. A panel of three will hear appeals and make decisions. Guides to help Nova Scotians understand the new appeal process can be downloaded at www.accessns.ca/drivers/motor-vehicle-appeal-board.asp.
