Novice Driver - BAC over zero - Possible courses of action?

Hello, wasn't exactly sure where to post this. Got pulled over yesterday, I'm a G2 class driver(23 years old) and I blew a warning and received a ticket for $110 for B.A.C. over zero - novice driver. The officer suspended my licence for 3 days. Had a couple of questions:

1. I'm right in understanding that I'll have my license suspended again by the MTO for 30 days?
2. Is there any worth in fighting the ticket somehow? I've heard the chances are slim to none.

You do not get your licence back from the police. If it was suspended for a warn range suspension, it gets returned to the MTO. Once the suspension is over, you have to pay a $150 reinstatement fee. The MTO will then issue a new one.
Do not take anything I say as legal advice. Only a lawyer can give legal advice. I am not a lawyer.

That's how it used to be with the old 12 hour suspensions. The police would take your licence back to the station and you could pick it up 12 hours later.
