FACING POVERTY, TAXI WIDOWS TO DISCUSS NEXT MOVE

TORONTO, ON (June 23, 2014) – Owners of Standard taxi plates, including several widows of lifelong taxi drivers, will announce a significant step in their effort to halt Toronto City Council’s changes to taxi laws, which are scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2014.

These women, and many more like them, will face severe financial hardship if and when Council’s new taxi regime comes into force.
