Too dangerous to take cabs in Winnipeg, says founder of Neechi Rides

 


It's a one-man ride service for indigenous people in Winnipeg, and while Pernell Flett isn't asking for money, he is collecting passengers' stories.

"Some of them tell how cab drivers try to touch them, feel them up and take them places they don't want to be," Flett said of the indigenous people he drives around the city.

"A lot of them won't speak out about it; they're too scared to say anything about it."
