Montreal Taxi Drivers Hit the Streets of Montreal

A taxi driver, Guercy Edmund, appeared in court on Monday and was convicted of a hit and run on a gang of attackers. The Youtube video clip clearly appeared to be in self-defence and yet they he is being convicted of several charges including aggravated assault, assault with a weapon, hit and run, and dangerous driving. When the attackers themselves got off with a slight slap on the hand, taxi drivers hit the streets of St-Antoine today to protest the taxi drivers conviction in support of their colleague.

This show some of the hazards that comes with being a taxi driver and the court should realize this and correct this injustice.
