VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – It looks like British Columbians are going to have wait a little while longer until they can order an Uber.
Transportation Minister Claire Trevena has said the province is “getting to the stage where we can assess what to do next”. But Green Leader Andrew Weaver is promising to press the issue during the fall session in Victoria.
Weaver says he will introduce legislation at some point this fall to try and press the issue.
“I do have my concerns that the government is not interested.. in moving this forward, which I think is problematic. We’ll see whether they bring it up for debate.”
That attempt to pass legislation will follow his introduction of two other ridehailing motions in the last couple of years.
“We’ll see. I think Uber will be here in Vancouver, it may not find a business case in other parts of BC. And I actually think we’ll see a thriving cab industry continue in Vancouver.”
