Less than a week after Brampton City Council asked Uber to stop operating in the Flower City, Mississauga has decided to follow suit.
In a unanimous vote, Mississauga City Council voted to ask the popular ride-sharing service to suspend operations while the city re-evaluates its relevant bylaws.
“Innovation, technology and growth are driving competition in an established industry that has a long history of providing quality and reliable service,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie in an interview with 680 News. “The debate about how to regulate Transportation Network Companies is not going away and we need to get it right.”
We’ve contacted Uber Canada to find out if the company intends to honour the request. We’ll update this article when we hear back from Uber.
