SASKATOON _ A City of Saskatoon committee is hailing the province to regulate ride-sharing companies such as Uber.
The city transportation committee is recommending that council ask the Saskatchewan government to consider possible regulations and licensing.
Councillor Mairin Loewen says before the city can make any decisions about how to fairly deal with existing taxi companies and ride-sharing services there needs to be a provincial regulatory response.
Uber has been in Canada for about three years and is already available in Toronto and some other communities.
Edmonton is proposing a bylaw that would make Uber drivers carry commercial insurance.
