Women's safety in taxis focus of Winnipeg brainstorming meeting

 


Concerns about women's safety in Winnipeg taxi cabs brought about a dozen people together on Monday evening to talk about strategies to address the issue.

The meeting at the Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre was organized by Bentley Dubois, who said numerous friends have told him they are too afraid to take taxis after being harassed and verbally abused.

The issue of safety in taxis has surfaced in recent days, with indigenous Winnipeggers offering free, safe rides to women who have experienced racism or rude behaviour in cabs.
