TORONTO, CANADA — Local police are working with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) and officials from the Ministry Of Transportation to crack down on unlicensed taxi and limousine drivers who operate illegally out of Pearson International Airport. An ongoing problem at the airport for more than a decade, new legislation that came into effect in early January gave police authority to curtail fare “scooping.” Prior to the new law, police were only able to assess lower fines.

George Mitsiopoulos, president of the Veteran Taxi & Limousine Drivers Association, which represents more than 300 licensed taxi and limousine drivers, said, "This is great news because every little bit helps and (scooping) has been out of hand for a long time."
