Mississauga could be the first city in Ontario to legalize ride-sharing services

    Time to ride uber to Square One eh?

    Make Uber drivers pay licensing fees…problem solved.

    • Even if they did, someone would still complain. Either it would be too little to please the taxi industry or too much for the Uber drivers.

      Nothing is ever that simple.

    • Allan

      Alright…then remove licensing fees for taxis.

      Oh wait, politicians would starve to death. Nevermind.

    • if we did things like that our country would starve to death, not just politicians.

      Only if they made the number of taxi licenses unlimited…

    I was on the side of Uber up until today. They got legalized in Edmonton and when the government asked them to have the driver’s license that allows you to pick up people for money, they started complaining and are now threatening to leave. I’m sorry but as good as the service is for competition and consumers, they’ve proved they don’t want to follow any rules whatsoever and basically proved people against them were right.

      I thought it was pretty universal knowledge that Uber doesn’t like to play by the rules and that most of their staff (not contractors, proper Uber employees/executives) are jerks?

    • Me

      Fair enough. I agree that I should have known that before today.

  • Alain Lafond

    Uber does not respect rules if they don’t like it…. Do you expect Uber to comply this time?
    Problem is for far from being fixed…

  • Alain Lafond

    Plenty of Uber monkeys to spread those lies….

    STOP calling it ride-sharing. The joke is on you if you think it’s anything less than a ride-selling service.
