Don't be a buzzkill: "Influential" Tavern League prefers slap on the wrist for first offender drunk drivers

Alberta has more to say.
“We’ve been told most people want to focus on repeated drunken drivers so that’s where we have settled.  We’re finding the first-time offenders aren’t the big re-offenders if you look at where it is, it’s second (offense) and above.” 

A couple of things here.

You've been told by whom, Alberta? 

Furthermore, I'm pretty sure all of those repeat offenders were first-time offenders once upon a time.  (That second sentence is pure gibberish.)
