Taxi Fare Increase?

Cabbies recently went to the Taxicab Board and asked for another fare increase. At that time a temporary increase of twenty cents was added to the drop fee to help pay for safety upgrades. The Taxicab Board later approved a request to make that increase permanent. Now Winnipeggers could be looking at yet another increase coming before winter holidays. Bruce Buchley, the chair of the taxicab board of Manitoba joined Larry to discuss the increase.
