With the May 9 vote just weeks away, Uber is wading into the fray in the hopes of making ride-sharing an election issue.
“Does your candidate support ride-sharing?”
That’s the question the company is asking in an email sent to many British Columbians on Wednesday.
Uber says it reached out to candidates asking them if they are in favour of ride-sharing, and compiled the results into a list.
The company claims to have done it on behalf of “over 100,000 British Columbians who want ridesharing in BC.
The email includes a link with the name and riding of all candidates across B.C. who are in favour of the industry.
The page also gives people an option to sign up or become a driver.

The Greens have expressed their support, while the NDP says it supports the idea in principle but only once they’ve created a “level playing field.”
