TORONTO, Ont. — The province of Ontario will appeal a recent Justice of the Peace ruling that the province’s speed limiter law is unconstitutional, the Canadian Press reports.

Reports say the province will argue commercial truck drivers can drive with “due care” at speeds of 105 km/h or less.

It will also contend that the Justice of the Peace in the Gene Michaud case relied on the testimony of witnesses who were not qualified as experts.
