Calgary cabbie Stephen Eze has had his licence suspended until August 5 after allegations that he kicked two men out of his cab on July 4th after they started locking lips.
The men, Nolan Hill & Justin O’Shea, said Eze declared “No, you can’t do that in my cab” before hurling insults at them.
The men asked to be let out, but when they declared that they wouldn’t pay for the trip, Eze refused to stop. They eventually agreed to cough up the cash in order to earn their freedom.
A complaint was lodged with Calgary United Cabs, who suspended the driver.
“We don’t tolerate these kinds of comments,” said company manager Naeem Chaudhry.
Stafford Show guest host Dominik Diamond wonders if a taxi driver should be able to kick out passengers whenever they’re offended. If a passenger starts angrily reciting passages from Mein Kampf, can a cabbie boot them? What if a man and woman start going at it sensually? Should a cabbie have a right to put on the brakes and refuse to continue with the journey?
