Cabbies need the fees. There is no hourly pay and drivers work on commission only. If someone vomits in their taxi, they have to spend much down time cleaning up the mess. Then because the seats are wet, they can not take any more passengers for the rest of the night. If someone throws up early in the shift, they loose out on a days pay. It is quite reasonable for the cabbie to demand a cleaning fee equal to that of a day's pay. Likewise, there should be fees for the use of car seats. Not all taxis have car seats and when someone calls for a car seat the closest one could be on the other side of town. The driver has to pass by lots of paying customers on one side of town to go to get the car seat customer which cuts into the driver's commission pay as it takes more time and gas. So, an extra few bucks to compensate would be reasonable. The same could also be said about people needing vans dragged from the other side of town for extra people or putting the seats down to move furniture.

Yeah Kevin. I'm some glad Dunderdale put that extra oll in the ground for the White Rose extension. Where would we be if another party was in power. They certainly don't understand how to pout oil under the ocean. Yeah, and no other premier has ever successfully collective bargained with the unions. When you are unable to see reality or the issue leading to a 30 odd percent approval, it is time to go. HINT: Bill 29 was a biggy
