No More Bandit Limos Campaign Continues
Join the Coalition for the third demonstration in our campaign-
Thursday December 7
11am to 1pm
At the Sheraton and Hilton Hotels in Downtown Toronto
(non-drivers should meet in front of the Sheraton on Queen Street just east of University)
In the City of Toronto bylaws permit limousine drivers to pick up passengers ONLY on a pre-arranged basis. However it is standard practice at Downtown Hotels for the management and doormen to accept money from limo drivers in exchange for lucrative fares. This freezes taxi drivers out of airport runs and forces them to either forget about the hotels or be prepared to pay for fares.
The City of Toronto and bylaw enforcement officers are constantly harassing taxi drivers but refuse to enforce the limo bylaws. The Toronto Coalition of Concerned Taxi Drivers has begun ongoing and rotating pickets of the major downtown hotels. We have already targeted the Intercontinental Hotel and the Harbour Castle- now we take on both the Sheraton and the Hilton in the heart of downtown.
