Will T.O. city council pass friendly Rideshare regulations on May 3?
Sorry but you watch way too many movies. In the day of transparency you can't take bribes like you used to. Old Jimmy K found that out when he took money from the Taxi industry. Oh ya it was completely legal.Please Actionjax, are you serious? It will come down to how much Uber will bride the counselors
It is the only way.
You see how the counselor's spend the tax payers money. Expensive meals, limos etc etc. Ford was calling these &%[email protected]!*ers out for years. Its all corrupt, Uber needs to take a little of the $50 Billion they have and put a few G's in their fat pockets and then we continue with the better way to get around for PAX's
Smart, simple, bribery solutions
That is the way things go down
And you don't watch enough real world. There is a reason people say "Real life is stranger than fiction", movies don't come close to touching real life.Sorry but you watch way too many movies. In the day of transparency you can't take bribes like you used to. Old Jimmy K found that out when he took money from the Taxi industry. Oh ya it was completely legal.
Exactly! And I didn't even mention other very visible things like political donations to campaigns, and once you're out of office with your golden pension come look me up I need a lobbyist... If anyone thinks bribery is not going on, careful out there, don't be so innocent... and I'm sure an offshore company can easily open an account in one of the innumerable tax havens for a specific beneficiary (please don't mistake this offshore company for Uber, this is all hypothetical, I'm not insinuating anything here).And that indefinite number of ways multiplies to the number of trusted relatives and friends who can accept some favours as bribes as well.
My inside sources say the vote will be very tight. Many are playing their decisions close to their chest. It's all down to the fence sitters. Get out and speak to you counsellor if you can. Tell them how you feel. And as always be honest with them.
If a 5 year old taxi looks like crap. What do you think a 7 year old one will look like.I like the proposed regs just as they are now, uber,taxi and toronto have given up some ground.It is impossible to please all parties %100.A little compromise here from all sides is needed to keep things moving.I do not think the city is is being unreasonable by asking for 7 year vehicle model.They want to keep the image of there city one of wealth and prosperity.Also taxis have paid millions in fees through the years.Uber should be willing to suck up a few fees here and there.So i will support the proposed regulations.
