contexte Canada
In Canada, taxi driver licensing is a provincial responsibility often delegated to the municipal level. Yarmouth, NS began licensing taxis in 1952, issuing license plates. Badges [see 2004.0170-.0171] were briefly used [period undetermined], before the city returned to issuing licence plates. Winnipeg licence taxis as early as 1881: horse-drawn street cabs were regulated, but not livery cabs. Jitneys, which travelled a predetermined route and admitted & discharged passengers along that route for a small fee, were a popular means of public transportation in Canada until they were banned c. 1915.
