“What surprised us after switching to iCabbi was how quickly we began to experience and benefit from increasing levels of automation. They offer the full range of saloons, estates, MPVs and minibuses, plus executive cars; their sister company Executive Cars Manchester has 15 prestige vehicles.

"Last night, I went to the police," said driver Manjinder Chhina. "Today, I asked them, I said, 'What do you do? Last night, they broke six cars in the area. Day before, they broke three cars. Same day, my car is broken, they broke three or four."

Chhina says most of the break-ins happened between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. He says most taxi drivers don't leave money in their cabs, but the damage to their cars is expensive. He says he hopes to see police do more.

"They should have more patrol, check the cameras. They should work hard to catch the guy because since five days, he is non-stop," Chhina says.

The president of Angrignon Taxi, Gurdev Singh Grewal, says many drivers remain on edge.

He says most haven't lost a lot of money because they don't keep cash in their cars overnight. But he says drivers remain concerned they are going to be targeted next.

"Obviously, I am worried with 10 cars broken in a week," Grewal said. "And up to now, the answer we get is, 'We are trying.' And to me, this is not good enough."

Montreal police say they can't comment on this case for privacy reasons.

The two-day event, which opened Wednesday, features speakers and survivors of human trafficking with the goal of creating more awareness and educating frontline police officers about the issues facing Indigenous community members. "I want police to understand what is important to families, what they need from police officers, and I want them to know that it is a very delicate relationship," said Meggie Cywink, a speaker whose sister was murdered in 1994.
