Toronto taxis warn of Paris revolt if Uber not shut down
It was a dramatic day at City Hall as taxis made their case for Toronto to shut down Uber. Representatives from all the major cab companies were on hand to reinforce their view that the unregulated, upstart car service is illegal and a danger to the public.
Taxi drivers also claim a decline in income and suggest the industry will be destroyed if Uber continues to operate. Their cries echo last week's violent outburst in Paris that resulted in burned cars, blocked roads and the help of the riot police to restore order.
According to the CBC some taxi drivers hinted today that a Paris type revolt could be coming to Toronto if the City doesn't act soon.
Where do you stand - should Uber be allowed to continue to operate in Toronto? Let us know in the comments.
