Future of Uber and Lyft in Ottawa rests with judge

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, March 8, 2018

The future of the City of Ottawa’s bylaw regulating ride companies like Uber and Lyft rests in the hands of a Superior Court judge.

Justice Maria Linhares de Sousa reserved her decision Thursday on an application by the taxi union to quash the vehicle-for-hire bylaw and reinstate the former taxi-only licensing regime. The judge didn’t say when she would release her decision.

The taxi union’s lawyer, Monica Song, capped off four days of argument by replying to the case presented by the city’s lawyer, Benoit Duchesne.
