So I'm standing at the corner of Brunswick and Carmicheal St. the other Sunday waiting for a cab. I called two cab companies and watched as numerous cabs drove by (I counted four cabs that just drove around the block continuously). At least ten cab cars drove by my friends and I (myself and one other friend being African-Canadian and the other two Caucasion). We couldn't hail done a single cab and we watched frozenly as they all smirked at us as they drove by. What I don't understand is why the cab drivers would begin to pull over as my caucasion friends hailed them down but as soon as they seen myself and my African-Canadian friend they sped away (a group of caucasions came up beside us and hailed a cab, not more than 5 minutes and they were sitting in a warm cab), sadly the only African-Canadian cab driver who drove by, was the only cab driver to pick us up. Seriously Halifax....it's almost 2008, I think it's time to get with the times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
