Premier comments for first time about impounding of truck in B.C.

Last week a truck registered to Premier Scott Moe was impounded in British Columbia after the driver, who was not the premier, allegedly failed a roadside sobriety test.

Vancouver Police said it stopped the Chevrolet Silverado with Saskatchewan plates just before 1 a.m. on Thursday for allegedly running a red light.

The driver, a 28-year-old man, had a Saskatchewan driver’s licence. The truck was impounded for 30 days, and the driver was also ticketed for the red-light violation.

Premier Scott Moe addressed the situation calling it a ‘personal matter.’

“There’s the time when we are called on to support family and friends; this is one of those times for me to be a part of that support system.’

Moe did not comment on who was driving the vehicle.
