Toronto taxis threaten to stage new protest over Uber

The saga continues. Toronto's taxi industry says that Uber isn't following the city's new regulations, which came into effect a few weeks ago.

In May, city council voted to regulate the ride-sharing service and created a new set of rules for private transportation companies (or PTCs). However, some taxi drivers say the city is doing little to make sure Uber's actually complying.

As 680 News reports, the United Taxi Workers Association will meet tomorrow and is considering holding another protest, possibly in early September around the same time as TIFF.

The last taxi protest shut down streets (and the 501 streetcar route) in December 2015.
