Backup arrival time, plus the camera.......totally different situation if neither were factors.

One of my colleagues suffered a broken nose using the same train of thought.

Well, if they don't believe in governemts and laws, then the Charter should not apply to these individuals.

Looking for the caselaw in Canada that states you have to Double Lock...or is it just policy.
The member's level of cooperation and patience with the subject makes me wonder if he already knew who he was dealing with before the traffic stop, and combined with having the camera running, just decided to play the game. Stop was near Castlegar, which is a pretty small town. He probably recognized the vehicle.) This member showed an incredible amount of patience - I wanted to punch this guy about 90 seconds into the video. He would have been arrested and in cuffs as soon as he refused to provide a breath sample, if it was my stop. (Arrested for refusal, charter/warn, vehicle impound, PTA, release on scene.)

Release on scene?
There's at least an obstruct, off camera a possible resist or even assault.
As for cuffing, it's always discretionary but I won't comment on policy.
If you can "keep blind" to the fact that one could actually get those off... Who cares if they sit on the ring and... Cry.
