In a game of chicken, I think we win.
Councillor Michael Ford
"I was quite happy with a unanimous vote from council," Councillor Ford, 24, told Narcity, "because it sends a strong message to the province of course but importantly it sends a strong message to the industry that that we're serious with this."
The younger Ford says that after consultations with legal advisers, they decided that the city did not have the power, as Los Angeles did, to cap them itself, but that the province does.
Both Fords have said they've urged the massive app companies to do the right thing on their own, but haven't seen enough movement; it's as if the companies playing a game of chicken with the city and the province to see who blinks first.
The premier's nephew he's pretty sure he knows how that's going to turn out.
"In a game of chicken," he said, "I think we win."

Owners of a Toronto bar are asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide St. E., launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on."
