Diamond Taxi is going before city councillors tonight to ask for an increase to its rates.
They want one because they haven't seen an increase in almost ten years.
Owner Seija Sekhon says with the minimum wage going up in January they'll need the extra revenue.
They also point to the fact that fuel costs just went up over 20 percent in the past few weeks.
She says it's urgent to act on this economic situation. (File Photo)
