OAKLEY | Flyer: Save 50% And Ride Turban-Free!

OAKLEY | Flyer: Save 50% And Ride Turban-Free!

Talk Radio AM640 April 19, 2016

A flyer slamming Toronto’s taxi industry is making its way around Scarborough, infuriating cabbies and a local councillor.

Underneath a photo of a crashed taxi and a man wearing a turban, the flyer reads: “If this is your idea of a taxi driver… you need UBER!!!”

“Save 50% and ride Turban-free” is located on the bottom of the flyer.

Ward 39 Councillor Jim Karygiannis calls the handout racist, saying it makes “hateful innuendo about hard working taxi drivers who are part of the multicultural society we call Canada.”

“As a City proud of its multiculturalism, each and every community plays a part in enhancing Toronto’s social and cultural landscape.”
