Toronto Taxi Alliance Statement - August 17th peaceful protest

TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2016 /CNW/ - While the August 17th peaceful protest by taxi drivers at 850 Coxwell is not an initiative of the Toronto Taxi Alliance (TTA), the TTA understands the frustration of drivers.

"We're disappointed that the City is not enforcing the by-laws on Uber, while it continues to ticket taxi drivers," says Rita Smith, Executive Director of the TTA.  

"Drivers have been faced with Uber's illegal activities for 2 years. These protests are the result of the City's inaction.

"We appreciate that the drivers have moved the peaceful protest to MLS at 850 Coxwell rather than disrupting traffic downtown."
