Impaired driving charges against Gil McGowan, president of the Alberta Federation of Labour have been dropped, CBC News has learned.
Gil McGowan was charged after police were called to a single-vehicle crash in Edmonton along 122 Street just off Whitemud Drive, around 3 a.m. on May 25.
Smoke was coming out of the vehicle, which had sustained damage to the front wheel and drive train.
Following a breathalyzer test, McGowan was charged with impaired driving and having a blood-alcohol content over the legal limit.
But a spokesperson for Alberta Justice says there was a problem with the breathalyzer findings.
A judge decided that left him with reasonable doubt on the charges, which were dismissed.
McGowan has never commented publicly on the case.
