MONTREAL | The company Uber, who has decided to stay in Quebec last October, is seen diving into a new controversy.
VAT News has obtained photos where it is written “Hello/Hi” in big letters on a vehicle of one of its drivers.
The photos were taken Saturday evening on Metcalfe street in downtown Montreal. The “Hello/Hi” appears in white on the doors of a Dodge Caravan minivan.
Both the inside and outside of the vehicle, we find the stickers of the multinational Uber.
Is it a provocation on the part of a driver? One thing is for certain, this event occurs a little more than a week after a unanimous vote in the national Assembly, which had asked the traders to abandon the formula “Hello/Hi”, that is not enough speaking to accommodate their customers.
“[The Quebec national Assembly] invites all merchants and all the employees who are in contact with local and international clientele and to welcome them warmly with the word” hello”, can we read in a motion tabled by the PQ and supported by all parties, including the LIBERALS.
This motion reminds us that the word “Hello” is one of the most well-known of the French language among non-francophones, and that it expresses “beautifully” the user-friendliness of quebec.
Joined by TVA News, a spokesperson for Uber in Quebec, Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, said that the company “does not endorse this initiative isolated.”
