An anonymous reader writes "The Provincial Court of Alberta has ruled that arrested suspects have the constitutional right to internet access at the police station to find a lawyer. The police had provided the 19 year old suspect, who was accused of drinking and driving, with a phone, phone book and the suggestion he call 411. In finding that to be inadequate, the court noted "The average 19 year old looks to Google as a source point for much of the information necessary to carry on daily life". Text of ruling at CanLII"
