Over the past days, many public comments have been made concerning Bill 100. While this draft legislation would prevent sharing economy services like Uber from operating in Quebec, we would like to express our commitment to find compromise and regulatory solutions that ensure healthy competition and equitable fiscal compliance for all industry players.
We continue to believe that Quebec is an ideal place for ridesharing. We truly want Uber to stay and work hand-in-hand with with the community as a good corporate citizen that contributes to the economic prosperity and welfare of the province.. Quebecers have long embraced the notion of the sharing economy and the public is hungry for more innovation. There is recognition in our province that we need change that better supports mobility, job creation and choice.
Uber applauds the City of Ottawa and the leadership of Mayor Watson, Chair Deans, city council and city staff for being the first jurisdiction in Ontario to adopt a progressive regulatory framework that embraces ridesharing.
As you know, entrenched interests are trying to limit your transportation options by aiming to stop Uber from operating in Montreal. As legislators gather together to discuss this fall’s legislative priorities, it’s time to show your support for ridesharing to those headed to the National Assembly!
Tell Mayor Coderre and City Council that you support modernizing regulations to allow for the safe and reliable transportation options that innovative technologies like Uber provide.
Stand up for progress and safe roads, stand up for Uber in Montreal. Sign the petition today!
