Toronto: Uber rally calls on council to allow ride sharing

Emily PrattRebel Correspondent

Uber Toronto held a rally at Nathan Phillips Square in front of City Hall where users and drivers alike showed support for the ride-sharing app, calling on council to create regulations to allow Uber to continue to operate.

Tell us what you think:

Should Uber have to follow the same regulations as existing taxi services?

Is Toronto standing in the way of progress?

Amazing how these trained citizens constantly ask for government regulation. There’s enough big gubbamint in our lives.

Is getting into a gubermint licensed and regulated taxi that is dirty and stinks of cabbie body odour an output of goobermint regulation? And we need more of this for Uber?

Competition drives quality of service and that is all that you need. Uber can do background checks on drivers, with the COOPERATION of law enforcement. Uber can ensure the right type of vehicle again with the COOPERATION of gewbermint MTO data. But since gubbamint is the enemy and destroyer of our standard of living through endless waste, gubbament COOPERATION won’t happen.

And all the lazy useless goobermint has to do is collect the taxes on Uber (private sector) revenue.
