Tensions rise between Winnipeg taxi drivers and indigenous community
Winnipeg's taxi industry says it hopes to meet with indigenous leaders to discuss accusations that some local cabbies are rude, racist, sexist — and mistreating aboriginal passengers.
Representatives are also considering more training for cabbies, including a specific indigenous component, said Luc Lewandoski, spokesman for the Winnipeg Taxi Alliance.
"How can we try to alleviate [the concerns] and bring a sense of confidence? That's the most important part of it," he said.
