    i would very much like to see regulations for towing from private property. Also, if you are towing company you must not be able to operate in related industry i.e. parking, property management, Will this be included as part of towing industry review?. Thanks

    Michael Thomsen asked over 1 year ago

    Yes, this review will consider relationships between towing, parking and property management, and other related industries, and whether specific regulations or prohibitions are needed. This will include businesses currently licensed by the City as Private Parking Enforcement Agencies. Please note that currently, regulations for parking on private property are found in Part “B” of the City’s Traffic and Parking By-law. Changes to the Traffic and Parking By-law are not being considered at this time.
