    What's astonishing is how so many Airport drivers are rushing to join Capital or Blueline taxi. If you quantify the amount of complaints these two companies have had in the past 5 years it's every 5th cab a customer has complained about the service/smell/talking in a foreign language and just lack of customer service. 5 years today these are the same scabs that destroyed your livelihoods, that had no morals or care driving up to the Airport to take your place, and to top it off you are all under the same union. Why are you all rushing to join such hypocrisy? For what? Value? So you can join the rest of the sheep? Listen Uber is here to stay and if it's not Uber it's another company so why fight this battle and why rush to join a fleet that has the worst service in Ottawa. If you really want to win customers back start by creating your own app and your own company and provide a better service like you have for the longest time than Blueline and Capital and you will survive because right now you have NOTHING to lose.

    Wake up Jim Watson City of Ottawa and do something useful for once. This has to stop. The Ottawa Airport is run by thugs like Roy Noja and Hanif Patni. David McGuinty your brother is on the board/committee for the Ottawa Airport, isn't it time you actually put your words to work and promise to fight for the people who voted you in. Haven't the Airport taxi drivers suffered enough. CBC Ottawa Ottawa Citizen CTV Ottawa Metro Ottawa Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) Unifor Canada

    Covenrtry Connections claims the Airport is the only exclusive taxi stand. However, the whole of the City of Ottawa is based on exclusive stands. Only one company has the exclusive rights to provide service at the Ottawa train station, the bus station, hospitals, shopping centres and hotels among others. The Airport drivers are not allowed to pick up passengers there. This gives Coventry Connections all the advantage and monopoly of the taxi industry in the City of Ottawa including the Airport.

    Sorry WHAT?? Hold on you mean to tell us that it was okay that Blueline and Capital take over the Airport stand but now that it is Airport drivers trying to make a living anywhere because we have been without income since August 11 we get kicked out. The statement "taxi stand takeover" is your title of this news?, how the hell are 8 cabs going to take over via rail #idiot Kristy Cameron #garbagereporting. Just a bunch of filth and utter disgust. Where the hell are we supposed to work? The Airport talks about not being exclusive so does that mean Westway, Crown, Loyal cabs can pick up? NO. Having said that, it is exclusive and the only cabs able to pick up are the greedy Blueline and Capital scabs. Sorry tried to be civil with words but this is outrageous.

    Here are the problems with the City of Ottawa and the Ottawa Airport Authority jointly trying to obtain an injunction to prevent Unifor taxi drivers from acting illegally as part of their protest. It means the city is taking sides in the complicated conflict. Yes the Airport Authority is not a part of the dispute between the union and Coventry Connections. However the airport has doubled its fees for taxi drivers to use the airport and those fee increases are being passed on to the drivers. So the drivers are concerned about the actions of the airport in relation to its deal with Coventry. However now the city has chosen a side. That’s not the business of the city. If anything, the city should be trying to bring members of its community together, not divide them. That was not helped recently by Mayor Jim Watson calling the protesting cabbies “thugs”. If the city is concerned about illegal activities occurring around the protests, it doesn’t need an injunction. Instead, the city and the police need to enforce the laws on the books. You don’t require an injunction to do that. If activities are illegal, the police know how to deal with them. Enforce the law. So in joining with the airport authority, the city is showing solidarity with the airport and has picked a side in the dispute. That’s bad business. The city should be trying to end the dispute, not issuing ineffective grandstanding injunctions to show it is doing something about the actions, some illegal, some not, of the taxi drivers. In case the city hasn’t noticed, the cabbies are very inventive protesters. They will not be stopped by an injunction. If the taxi drivers can’t protest at the airport, they move to the Airport Parkway. If they can’t protest on the parkway, where do they move next? Highway 417? Ottawa City Hall? Lansdowne Park? In truth, most anywhere they want in the city. Mayor Jim Watson could call out the army and not have enough troops to keep the cabbies from finding new ways to protest. No Watson has just invented a new Whac-A-Mole game. A cabbie protest pops up and the city clubs it down. The cabbies appear in a new place. This could go on for awhile. Watson has never been much good in acting on the fly when it comes to controversial decisions. The classic case was the casino dispute where the mayor flip-flopped a number of times and eventually blamed the problem on the province. Bad idea. We’re increasingly seeing a municipal government out of control: a $52-million operating budget deficit; zoning and community design plans being treated as suggestions; a casino dispute that alienated the Ottawa Senators, one of the most important businesses in town; and now a taxi protest that is slowing a major artery in town. So what does the city do? It joins with a stakeholder in the dispute to issue an unnecessary injunction to fight the taxi-driver union. That’s not the job of the city. It has lots of legal tools at its command. Instead Ottawa experiences a very sad day in the history of union-management disputes in this community with the municipality taking sides. This is unfortunate. Will injunction stop the protests (if we really do want to stop the protests)? Unlikely. Legal protests are fundamental to our society. All issuing an injunction might achieve is make the city look as if it is doing something. The injunction will inflame the cabbies to do even more drastic things. And at the heart of this change is Mayor Jim Watson trying to look like he is dealing with the dispute and failing miserably in the process. This is about grandstanding politics to appeal to voters, not finding a solution. The injunction will drive all the stakeholders to this dispute farther apart. Watson is awkwardly getting into a question even bigger than his casino fiasco. Memo to the mayor: Your job is to find solutions to problems, not to make them worse for your own political gain. It’s difficult to put out a fire with gasoline. http://bulldogottawa.com/injunction-inflames-nasty-taxi-dispute/ Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport (YOW) Ottawa Sun Ottawa Citizen Jim Watson Metro Ottawa 1310 NEWS David McGuinty CTV Ottawa PSAC - AFPC Solidarity Against Austerity

    This is your solution Mr Jim Watson? Remove the Airport drivers who have been protesting for more than 42 days with no income rather than helping them reach an agreement or solution. It has taken you 42 days and this is your plan to file an injunction to remove us from protesting. What kind of leadership are you taking as the Mayor of Ottawa, rather than helping solve the situation for over 300 families affected you just try to push the problem aside/out of sight as it's become an "inconvenience" for you.
