Toronto's bid to ban Uber has failed. What's next?

Marissa SemkiwRebel Commentator

I talk to lawyer Edward Prutschi about the court's decision.

Will Mayor John Tory or city council amend the city's bylaws?

And will any new regulations regarding insurance or licensing make Uber unprofitable and non-viable?

The cities don’t like Uber because they can’t control it or tax it. If they looked deeper they would probably find more in the underground economy of contractors who don’t have business licenses and work out of a spare room or garage. Maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned this because the cities will be scrambling to set up “studies” to investigate this and raising taxes to fund their new found bureaucracy.

Municipal governments in far too many communities are intruding into our lives with ever increasing boldness. Using terms like "sustainable development "etc. to impose endless restrictions upon our lives including the right to engage in commerce.
We’ve got bicycle lanes and banned door knobs and signs everywhere warning us of “dangers” and so on.
I’m tired of it.

I do not like Shredded Wheat: I DON’T BUY IT.
You don’t like UBER: DON’T USE IT.
