This is not necessarily true, as the Charter of Rights itself defends and guarantees your right to counsel. You have the right to obtain legal advice and find a good lawyer to represent you and, as long as your attempts to contact one is genuine, you can make as many phone calls as you will need to get a lawyer that you can trust.
If you are being arrested on the road for impaired driving and you are being forced to take a breath test, you have the right to call your lawyer before taking any test and the police should be able to assist you in making your call first.
