The Premier of Quebec is spiking 'solutions' to the taxi industry proposed by Uber.
On Wednesday Uber said the company was now willing to suspend operations while new regulations are worked out.
The offer came on the first day of public hearings about Bill 100, Quebec's new law regulating the taxi industry.
In Question Period on Thursday Premier Philippe Couillard said the provincial government was not interested in having Uber create a 'transition fund' or imposing new taxes to help taxi drivers.
Coalition Avenir Quebec leader Francois Legault said the Liberals were standing in the way of innovation.
Couillard replied that just because things are new doesn't necessarily make them better.
