Transport ministers from across Canada seemed to have mixed feelings about the criminalization of distracted driving on Wednesday as they met in Toronto.

Global News used this week’s meeting to ask all Lessard’s provincial counterparts if they would be on board with that. Some were, but others weren’t so sure — or avoided answering the question entirely.
