KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

Once again American law aligns with our law. “it would be fundamentally unfair and a deprivation of Due Process to allow an arrested person’s silence to be used to impeach an explanation subsequently offered at trial.” In other words, at trial, the Crown cannot ask or even comment about you exercising your right to remain silent upon arrest.  You will NOT look guilty if you refuse to speak to the police.
