BC Epilepsy Society Advocates for Ridesharing in BC

On November 20th the BC Government unveiled their rideshare legislation and their plans to bring rideshare services like Uber and Lyft to the province.

The BC Epilepsy Society is part of the Ridesharing Now for BC coalition and spoke at a press conference about the decision of the BC Government. Global BC covered this press conference, which was featured on Global News. Check out the video here:

Kim Davidson, Executive Director of the BC Epilepsy Society spoke at the press conference about how ridesharing in BC is a public health and safety issue that goes far beyond the taxi and political agendas at play in BC for over seven years. She finished her statement by urging the hundreds of thousands of voters in BC living with conditions such as epilepsy and other disabilities to rise up and to organize and mobilize their efforts to lobby for ridesharing.
