“…In Toronto, some disgruntled cab drivers argue the reason neither municipalities nor police are moving quickly to take on Uber is racism, because many cab drivers today are recently-arrived visible minority immigrants.
The cabbies contend Mayor John Tory and Police Chief Mark Saunders would be more responsive to the crisis in their industry if they had been born in Canada.
As a periodic cab user for over 45 years I know, along with most Torontonians, that the cab industry has never been a limousine service and often not a very good transportation service.
This dissatisfaction has been exploited by Uber, but the Uber/taxi war has nothing to do with racism by the mayor or the police chief…”
Racism? I dunno other than Allah works in mysterious ways…
