After a gruelling all-night session at the Manitoba Legislature Bill 30, which dissolves the Manitoba Taxicab Board was passed.
Politicians were in the house until just after 4:00 am Friday morning so that they could pass legislation before the end of the session to avoid the bill dying.
Bill 30 is the law that will transfer the control of vehicle-for-hire to municipalities and make way for ride-sharing companies like Uber to enter the market.
The new law comes into effect on March 1, 2018.
Manitoba Taxi drivers, who have been vocal about their opposition to Uber plan to demonstrate at the legislature on Friday to show their disappointment in the government for passing the bill into law.
