Trial in 2 days - Question about Ticket Details

The trial is in 2 days and I just noticed that the the ticket I received has 'Highway Traffic Act 44.1 (3)" on it.

A quick google search shows me that the act in question refers to BAC>0 for G2 drivers and part 3 states the maximum penalty as a fine between $60 and $500.

Does this mean, my license will not be suspended if I were to plead guilty and just pay the thing off?

Subsection 4 contains the suspension penalty.

Also, how do I prove undue hardship? A suspension means immediate termination and a pseudo industry ban which means I might as well kill myself since I'd die of starvation anyway

Before trial you could ask for a reduced charge that does not involve a suspension. Otherwise, if the stakes are so high and you are not prepared for trial you could ask for an adjournment so that you can hire someone to represent you. Be prepared to hear NO but anything is possible.
