Beady eyes and floppy heads, indeed!

blame-canada.jpgFor all the good up in Canada, they still fuck some shit up, eh. A recent court case has cost an internet carpooling startup eleven grand (Canadian). The site was designed to let folks easily arrange carpooling — good for the wallet, good for the environment. But not good for the bus companies, who “sued under an Ontario law that limits carpoolers to traveling only from home to work and back, riding with the same driver every day and paying only by the week, among other restrictions.” And won.

So it’s basically illegal to rideshare in Ontario, except in very limited circumstances. Brilliant.
