Some 8-hundred taxi drivers are involved in an anti-UBER protest in Toronto today, but this one does not include plans to disrupt traffic.

The cabbies have gathered at the city’s municipal licensing and standards office at the East York Civic Centre on Coxwell Avenue and plan to limit their protest to the MLS office.

Just 12 hours before the protest was set to begin, the city granted UBER a private transportation company license, but a month after a new bylaw top bring regulation to the ride-sharing app came into effect.  MLS Executive Director Tracy Cook calls that a co-incidence.

As a result of the new by-law, city representatives will now begin inspecting UBER drivers’ vehicles, verifying their insurance and conducting criminal background checks.
