    @ned Taylor – hardly a ‘green’ argument for Uber though is it? Are those jobs sustainable and are Uber drivers paid a living wage?

    Ride-hailing would make live easier and safer on everyday people while providing many job opportunists. Taxi companies can not keep up with demand on New Years Eve, Canada Day and even regular Friday and Saturday nights. Allowing Uber and other ride-hailing services is a no-brainier.

    Uber is no better. They have surge pricing and zero accountability for lost items. They will monopolize drive up the cost to the consumer. How Can the average Uber driver afford insurance in B.C? The insurance rates a taxi pays is four to five times higher they are commercially insured Uber does not require commercial insurance. Also the Star system in the States if the consumer gets less than three stars three times in a row you get an email from Uber saying your banned do to your low star rating and Lyft had the same system. Now add in the discrimination factor where people can choose the race and gender of the driver if your lighter skinned and a female you can charge three times more. That would never be okay in any other legally operated industry.

    Uber have a terrible history of not supporting basic worker rights and their CEO is now an advisor to Trump. Surely Greens should be focusing their support on car-sharing, sustainable and free/low cost public transit etc?
