A hypothetical proposal to keep Uber unlicensed is supported by a majority of Toronto residents, according to a poll.

The Mainstreet/Postmedia survey found a narrow margin between Uber supporters and those who think it should be banned.

The poll found that 45 per cent of Torontonians are in favour of allowing Uber drivers to continue driving without a municipal license, while 37 per cent believe they should be banned. That's a difference of just eight per cent.

However, when the responses were divided by age, Uber fared much better. Among those 18-24, 73 per cent supported the ride-sharing service, compared with only 22 per cent of those 65 and older.

and it also says that "
The poll also found that Toronto residents feel taxis are safer than Uber vehicles.

While an overwhelming 85 per cent of respondents felt that taxis were safe, only 48 per cent said the same of Uber."

How many of those who support Über are aware that there is NO insurance and that they're royally screwed if the car gets into a serious accident? If they did know, would they still support it?

Another thing: WHEN was this poll done? Was it before the accident that's now in the news or after. If it was before, I'm pretty sure the numbers would be different now.
