Uber is causing more conflict in our city, spawning from a Bob Edwards Gala where W. Brett Wilson made a comment reportedly saying that he is willing to pay $100K to the Calgary Library if the city approves Uber, a ride-sharing company.

The Calgary Public Library is grateful for Wilson’s generous commitment but said it has “no opinion on Uber”.
Will this substantial donation to the Calgary Library be the reason why our laws will change to allow ride-sharing?
Wilson is a strong activist for Uber and comments on twitter show that Calgarians are on his side too, but some are a bit weary of his methods.
