Enough is enough! Let's bring ridesharing apps to BC now.
Does this sound familiar?
"You don't have cash?!?"
"Sorry I am not going to go where you want to go."
"Sorry we are still looking to locate a car for you."
"Your cab must have been taken by someone else."
Today, we see more and more people deciding to stay in or even 'just have a few drinks' and drive to avoid the hassle of the unpredictable world of taxis in BC.
BC government is breaking their promise for the second time pushing arrival of UBER and Lyft to late 2019 and this is putting us all in danger of drunk and high drivers and further hurting the province's tourism and restaurant industry.
Each individual can agree or disagree with the decisions of their elected government regardless of their own vote. This is democracy in action.
However, this is different.
This kind of blatant appeasement of one industry, against the benefit of the voters who voted the BC NDP in, and against their own promise, is completely unacceptable. This is a breach of trust.
This is the BC NDP's position on the issue from 2017:
John Horgan and the BC NDP: If you need two years to gather data on something already in place in all major cities, then maybe you are unfit and should be disqualified to make other important decisions for BC.
You are worried about two Surrey ridings and the Taxi Association (not the taxi drivers). Instead, you should start thinking about the whole province and all British Columbians.
We believe it is time for you to break your promise to the Taxi Association to do what is right for the province.
