Mr. John Bosley (Don Valley West):
Madam Speaker, I rise on a matter of urgent and pressing necessity pursuant to Standing Order 43. I move, seconded by the hon. member for Etobicoke Centre (Mr. Wilson):
That whereas a lawsuit by one airport limousine driver against his employer for wrongful dismissal has brought to light the common practice of owners requiring drivers to pay for the right to drive, at fees up to $55,000, and to pay for the car and all associated costs; and whereas the drivers are led to believe they have bought the airport plate thereby, in contravention of the terms of issuance, and failure to pay results in imposed radio silence and death threats; therefore this House directs the minister to commence a full-scale inquiry into all aspects of ground transportation at Toronto international airport in order to properly protect the public interest and well-being and safety of the drivers.
Sub-subtopic: GROUND TRANSPORTATION AT TORONTO INTERNATIONAL-MOTION UNDER S O. 43
