The answer still applies.
Your licence suspension is a provincial one only and does not apply in another province.
This type of suspension is where there is no conviction so it is not at all likely that Alberta would suspend your licence for this issue.Let me know if you need any further clarification.
As far as I understand it when the prohibition is under the Motor Vehicle Act and is not a suspension under the Criminal Code it doesn't apply outside of BC.
I cannot find anything clear to show him but you can show him this conversation.
That is about when your licence is suspended. Your licence is not suspended in BC. You are prohibited from driving for 90 days. But there is no conviction as it is an administrative act.So you have a valid licence but simply cannot drive in BC for 90 days.That is how I and the other lawyer who is in BC understand it. He is no longer active on this site which is why I stepped in to answer.
That is what I am talking about. This is an automatic prohibition that is given by the police and there is no charge or conviction. You just cannot drive for 90 days in BC.
I know that but when you read the act it sounds like that is not the case as it is a driving prohibition. I can't add anything further because I can only know what I've read myself. I am not in BC though as I said the other lawyer who provided the first answer is. That he's a criminal lawyer there so I can only suspect that he is correct.
