Ontario announces task force to revamp tow truck industry


Ontario is setting up a task force to examine how to reform the province’s tow truck industry.

Police say the GTA has been the scene of a violent rivalry over control of the towing market.

York Regional Police have dismantled several alleged organized crime rings and resulted in charges including murder.

Premier Doug Ford says the province is alarmed by the recent violence and says the task force will help make the industry safer.

He says the task force will consist of members from across numerous government ministries as well as the Ontario Provincial Police.
