Toronto taxis threaten protest on NBA All-Star weekend

The last taxi protest in December blocked off some Toronto streets for hours. And the next one might cause even more disruption on local roadways because it could happen on February 12, the first day of the NBA All-Star weekend.

According to CityNews, Toronto's taxi drivers will mull over staging another protest if City Council doesn't seek an injunction to shut down UberX next week.

As CityNews reports today, representatives from all of the taxi associations in and around Toronto will meet on February 7 to decide what to do next.

Last week, the city granted Uber a taxi brokerage licence. But, this applies only to Uber Taxi and not UberX, one of the American company's most popular and affordable services.
