and it also says that "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.
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."
