Kelowna's mayor says extra enforcement and a lot of visitors have left the city with the country's highest rate of drunk drivers caught by police.  Statistics Canada says in 2011, Kelowna reported 583 incidents for 100,000 people. St John's was second with a rate of 560.   The next closest was Regina with 369 far behind Kelowna. Stats Can doesn't examine the reasons for the numbers.
