Media Advisory - Toronto Taxicab drivers hold protest against Premier McGuinty's unfair support of the Airport Limousine



    TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Toronto Taxicab drivers are calling on the
Ontario government to reverse its decision to remove restrictions on Airport
Limousines from picking up fares within the limits of City of Toronto. This
unilateral and arbitrary regulation change creates an unfair disadvantage in
the Taxi Industry against the Toronto Taxicab drivers.
    The iTAXIWORKERS Association is organizing a demonstration by the Toronto
Taxicab drivers to reject this action and demand for equal opportunity under
the law. "If the Airport Limousine can pick up fares in Toronto, Toronto
Taxicab drivers should be allowed to pick up fares from the Airport without
harassment," says Sajid Mogul, the President of the iTAXIWORKERS, Toronto
Chapter.
    The Toronto Taxicab drivers are urging the public and the elected Toronto
City councilors as well as the Metro MPP's to reject Premier McGuinty's
unilateral regulation change and support a fair and equitable Taxi Industry
regulation.
