Brampton city council has passed a motion to suspend all ride-sharing programs.
The move temporarily keeps Uber from working in that community.
Violations of the by-law will cost the offender a minimum fine of $5,000.
The City of Brampton has asked all those involved with ride-sharing services, including Uber, to suspend their operations for the time being.
The Taxi Advisory Committee and staff with the City of Brampton is now going to look into the matter before implementation takes place and the provincial and federal governments have been asked to make legislative changes, in order to give municipalities the ability to adequately enforce local by-laws against similar services.
