Taxi driv­ers’ law­suit can pro­ceed over Uber’s ar­rival

StarMetro Edmonton - - CANADA -

MON­TREAL—Cab driv­ers have been given the green light to sue the Que­bec govern­ment over its al­leged in­ac­tion as Uber in­creas­ingly moves into their mar­ket.

A lawyer for the taxi driv­ers says if they win their claim, it could cost the prov­ince $1 bil­lion to com­pen­sate driv­ers for lost rev­enues and a drop in the value of their taxi per­mits.

Que­bec Su­pe­rior Jus­tice Mark Pea­cock said the case made by taxi driv­ers can pro­ceed and be heard on its mer­its in a de­ci­sion ren­dered Wed­nes­day.
