Taxi Company Hoping For Rate Increase Approval

Diamond Taxi's Owner wants the Police Services Board to approve a 15 percent rate increase.  

The company is in a grey area right now since the new taxi by law hasn't been ratified yet, so the decision still lies in the police board's hands. 

Seija Sekhon says they need this rate increase approved as soon as possible so they can keep up with the minimum wage increase. 

She adds until the by-law is ratified, they can't set their own rates and this 15 percent would be the first increase they've had in almost ten years.
