There's still hope: Quebec to reopen talks with Uber before deadline

Oct 13 2017, 2:22 am

Quebec and Uber will reenter talks ahead of the October deadline when the ridesharing company is supposed to leave the province.

According to CBC, André Fortin, Quebec’s new transport minister, will meet with Uber represenatives before October 14, when the company has said it will stop service in the province.

Uber said it will leave due to new regulations implemented by the province, which include longer training hours for drivers and tightening the criminal record verification process.

Uber has been operating in Quebec under a pilot project for nearly a year but there has been a strong pushback from the taxi industry.

According to Premier Phillipe Couillard, talks between Fortin and Uber reps will take place within the coming days.
