THAT’S JUST ONE OF THE MAJOR RULES OUTLINED BY BC’S PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION BOARD TODAY. CBC VANCOUVER NEWS AT 11 HOST DAN BURRITT JOINS US LIVE NOW. WHAT ARE THE BIG GUIDELINES FOR RIDE HAILING.>>Reporter: THERE ARE THREE . THE FIRST ONE IS MINIMUM PRICING. RIDE HAILING HAS TO BE THE SAME AS A TAXI — GOES UP AND THEY CAN USE COUPONS OR DISCOUNTS TO CHARGE BELOW THE MINIMUM. THE SECOND IS NO LIMIT ON FLEET SIZE. THIS IS CONTENTIOUS ONE. COMPANIES LIKE UBER AND LYFT CAN PUT AS MANY CARS ON THE ROAD AT LEAST FOR NOW. THE BOARD WILL MONITOR TO SEE IF THE FLEET SIZES NEED TO CHANGE. THIRD IS LARGE BOUNDARIES. RIDE HAILING COMPANIES NEED TO BE ABLE TO CROSS CITY LIMITS. THE BOARD SAYS THEY NEED THIS UNDER THE BUSINESS MODEL. TAXI BOUNDARIES WILL STAY THE SAME. DESPITE THE ALLOWANCES RIDE HAILING CARS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED EVERYWHERE. THE BOARD SAYS RIDE HAILING VEHICLES CANNOT PICK UP PASSENGERS ON CRUISE SHIP DAYS IN OR AROUND CANADA PLACE. WE KNOW IT GETS BUSY DOWN THERE. THEY SAY THIS IS A SAFETY MEASURE TO MAKE SURE THAT PEDESTRIANS ARE SAFE AND TRAFFIC KEEPS FLOWING. KEEP IN MIND A LOT OF TAXIS WORK DOWN THERE. ESPECIALLY ON THE BUSY CRUISE SHIP DAYS. RIDE SHARING ADVOCATES ARE PLEASED WITH THE RULES OVERALL AND DON’T THINK CUSTOMERS WILL BOOK AT THE MINIMUM PRICING SCHEME TAKE A LISTEN.>>WE KNOW FROM THE RESEARCH THAT THE CONSUMER WANTS THE ECONVENIENCE. THEY’RE HAPPY WITH THE SAME RETCHES PRICE AS TAXIS. THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO GET A RIDE. THAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING WHEN THEY WANT IT.>>Anita: I’M SURE A LOT OF REACTION TO THIS TODAY. ARE WE ALSO HEARING FROM THE TAXI INDUSTRY.>>Reporter: YES. MIXED REACTION TO SAY THE LEAST. LET’S START WITH WHAT LYFT TOLD US. HERE IS THE STATEMENT AT LEAST IN PART… THEY SAY THEY ARE DISAPPOINTED WHILE THE REGULATIONS DON’T INCLUDE A PROVINCIAL BOUNDARY WE ARE PLEASED THAT THE LARGE GEOGRAPHIC REGIONS WERE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. MEANS THEY CAN WORK THROUGHOUT METRO VANCOUVER AND NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CROSSING CITY BOUNDARIES. THE VANCOUVER TAXI ASSOCIATION WOULDN’T COMMENT ABOUT THE RULES. THE BC TAXI ASSOCIATION SAYS IT IS NOT PLEASED WITH THE BOUNDARY RULE AND RIDE HAILING WON’T HAVE A CAP ON FLEET SIZES FOR NOW. IF YOU WANT TO DRIVE FOR A COMPANY LIKE UBER OR LYFT IF AND WHEN COME HERE TO BC YOU HAVE TO GET THE CLASS 4 LICENCE. ANITA.>>Anita: DAN BURRITT ON NEW RULES FOR RIDE HAILING IN BC, THANKS DAN.>>>TURNS OUT NOISE LEVELS ON SKY TRAIN CAN GET SO LOUD THEY CAN BE ACTUALLY DANGEROUS FOR YOU. AS THIS REPORT, THERE MAY NOT BE IMMEDIATE DAMAGE THERE IS STILL CAUSE FOR CONCERN.>>Reporter: MOST OF US RECOGNIZE THAT SOUND. THAT SCREECHING NOISE FROM SKY TRAIN CARS GRINDING DOWN THE TRACK. BUT JUST HOW LOUD DOES IT REALLY GET IF YOU’RE RIDING THE SKY TRAIN?>>SCREECHING WITH THE TRAINS. STEEL ON STEEL.>>ALWAYS BEEN LOUD. EVER SINCE ’86.>>Reporter: WE RODE THE EXPO AND MILLENNIUM LINES CARRYING THE SOUND METRE. THE LOUDER THE HIGHER THE DECIBELS.>>WE’RE TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW SORT OF 90-DECIBELS AS WE’RE RIDING HERE THAT’S ALMOST FOUR TIMES THE OCCUPATIONAL LIMIT. SO IF YOU NOW GO HALF AN HOUR RIDING AT THIS LEVEL TO FOUR OR FIVE HOURS OF NOISY WORKPLACE AND THEN YOU GO TO A NOISY NIGHTCLUB IN THE EVENING AND MAYBE HAVE HOBBIES THAT ARE NOISY AS WELL, THEY’RE ALL ADDING TO YOUR DOSE. ALL ADDING TO THAT POTENTIAL FOR NOISE INDUCED HEARING LOSS.>>Reporter: SOME AREAS SAW LEVELS GO AS HIGH AS 106-DECIBELS. AT THAT LEVEL DAMAGE CAN HAPPEN WITHIN FOUR MINUTES.>>I USUALLY HAVE EAR PLUGS THAT I PUT ON. BECAUSE THE NOISE GETS SO DISTRACTING AND ANNOYING.>>Reporter: DO YOU FIND IT WAS A BIT LOUD.>>YEAH.>>Reporter: YEAH.>>YEAH. IT WAS REALLY LOUD.>>Reporter: ALTHOUGH LEVELS DON’T REMAIN AS HIGH THROUGHOUT THE LINE. IT’S STILL ENOUGH TO CAUSE POTENTIAL DAMAGE.>>THERE’S A PRETTY STRONG LITERATURE NOW THAT SAYS THAT IF YOU’RE EXPOSED TO CHRONIC LEVELS OF NOISE AROUND WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT, MAYBE THE 70 TO 80-DECIBEL RANGE, YOU’RE ACTUALLY POTENTIALLY GOING TO BE T AT INCREASED RISK OF HAVING A HEART ATTACK OR A STROKE.>>Reporter: SOME CARS WERE LOUDER THAN OTHERS. OLDER MARKED CARS ARE HIGHER LEVELS THAN NEWER MARKED THREE CARS.>>THEY HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. THE WINDOWS DON’T NEED TO BE OPEN. THEY HAVE BETTER SOUNDPROOFING AND BETTER DOOR SEALS THAT PREVENT NOISE FROM COMING IN.>>Reporter: DON’T GET YOUR HOPES UP JUST YET. REPLACEMENT OF THE OLDER CARS WON’T HAPPEN FOR ANOTHER FIVE YEARS. TRANSLINK LOOKED INTO SKY TRAIN NOISE LAST YEAR AND FOCUSED HOW IT WAS AFFECTING THOSE LIVING NEAR THE TRACKS. TO MITIGATE THE NOISE TRANSLINK IS LOOKING INTO TRACK CONDITIONS AND SPEED THAT SAY THEY WILL ALSO HELP NOISE LEVELS INSIDE THE TRAINS. SO FOR NOW, EXPERTS SAY YOU SHOULD AVOID THE LOUD MUSIC TO DROWN OUT THE SOUND. AND GET EAR PLUGS IN STEAD.

AS THE CBC REPORTS, IT’S ADDING TO THE BIGGER PROBLEM OF OVERALL POPULATION DECLINE.>>Reporter: RESCUE EFFORTS ALONG THE FRASER RIVER CONTINUE TO HELP SPAWNING SALMON MIGRATE UPSTREAM. CLOSE TO ONE MILLION SALMON ARE EXPECTED THIS YEAR. BUT ONE EXPERT SAYS THAT NUMBER ALONE IS CONCERNING.>>A LOT FEWER FISH RETURN TO THE FRASER RIVER THAN WAS EXPECTED. WE HAVE SEEN NOW OVER THE PAST 20 YEARS JUST A GENERAL DECLINE IN RETURNS IN MANY SPECIES IN PARTICULAR SOCK EYE AND CHINOOK. SO THIS TREND, YOU KNOW, LIKELY WILL CONTINUE INTO THE FUTURE. A LOT OF THIS HAS TO DO WITH CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE OCEAN AND FRESH WATER AFFECTING THEIR HABITAT.>>Reporter: MORE THAN A HUNDRED PEOPLE HAVE BEEN WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK FOR TWO MONTHS NOW TO HELP THE TRAPPED FISH. THERE’S STILL NO ANSWER TO WHEN THINGS WILL BE RESOLVED. THE FIRST NATION SAYS THE COMMUNITY IS ALREADY SEEING THE DECLINE NOTING THE SLIDE WILL ONLY MAKE THINGS WORSE.>>IT WILL BE THE NEXT FOUR THINGS AFTER WHEN THIS RUN GETS THROUGH IF THEY GET THROUGH. OR IF THEY MAKE IT HOME TO SPAWN. BECAUSE I THINK THEY LIFTED 16,000 OVER NOW WITH THE HELICOPTERS. BUT WE DON’T KNOW IF THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT TO SPAWN.>>Reporter: SOME OF THE TRAPPED SALMON HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED UPSTREAM BY HELICOPTER WHICH CAN ONLY TRANSPORT ABOUT 1200 FISH A DAY. MULTIPLE ROCKS AND 5 METRE WATER FALL BLOCK THEIR WAY. A NEW ROAD HAS BEEN CONSTRUCTED IN HOPES TO HELP THINGS.>>WE’RE BUILDING A ROAD FROM OUR SITES AROUND THE BLOCKAGE TO A LOCATION UPSTREAM WHERE WE ARE MOVING THE FISH. SO NOW THIS WILL ALLOW US TO USE TRUCK TRANSPORT TO MOVE THE FISH THAT SHOULD INCREASE OUR ABILITY TO MOVE A LARGER NUMBER OF FISH.>>Reporter: IN A STATEMENT FISHERIES AND OCEANS CANADA SAYS 2019 IS EXPECTED TO BE AN EXTREMELY CHALLENGING YEAR. ADDING PLANTS MIGHT NEED TO BE ADJUSTED IF THE SALMON CAN MAKE IT UP THE RIVER.>>THIS PARTICULAR LANDSLIDE NOW CREATES ANOTHER PROBLEM ON TOP OF THOSE ISSUES IN TERMS OF BLOCKING MIGRATION FOR THIS PARTICULAR COHORT. AND SO THIS COHORT COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECTED IN THE FUTURE AND OTHERS COULD AS WELL IF THIS PARTICULAR BARRIER ISN’T REMEDIED LATER IN THE FALL AND WINTER.>>Reporter: IT’S EXPECTED THE NUMBERS WILL CONTINUE TO DWINDLE.

NOW, IT’S UNCLEAR EXACTLY WHAT THOSE PLANS ARE. BUT TODAY THE PRIME MINISTER DEFENDED THE PROTESTORS RIGHT TO PROTEST. THERE ARE 300,000 CANADIANS CITIZENS IN HONG KONG. THE LARGEST OF ANY CITIZENS OF ANY COUNTRY IN HONG KONG. WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THEM. WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND FREEDOM OF ASSEMBLY. WE ARE GOING TO CONTINUE TO CALL UPON THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT TO RESPECT THE ONE COUNTRY TWO SYSTEMS AGREEMENT THAT THEY HAVE LONG ABIDED BY.>>Anita: THIS COMES A DAY AFTER. [ Cheers and APPLAUSE ] ‘S EMBASSY IN OTTAWA TOLD CANADA TO STOP MEDDLING IN HOP KONG’S AFFAIRS. THAT AFTER CANADA ISSUED JOINT STATEMENT WITH THE EU URGING CHINA TO SHOW RESTRAIN WITH PROTESTORS AND TO LISTEN TO THEIR DEMANDS.>>>THE UNREST IN HONG KONG HAS BEEN GOING ON NOW FOR 11 WEEKS. WHILE POLICE PRAISED THE PRO DEMOCRACY PROTESTORS FOR REMAINING PEACEFUL DURING YESTERDAY’S HUGE DEMONSTRATION, THEY ALSO HAVE A STARK WARNING. THEY WILL MEET VIOLENCE WITH VIOLENCE. CBC’S CHRIS BROWN HAS MORE FROM A CITY ON EDGE.>>Reporter: WELL, HONG KONG MORE OR LESS RETURNED TO NORMAL TODAY AFTER A PRETTY GOOD TURN OUT FOR THE MARCH YESTERDAY. ORGANIZERS PEG IT AT ABOUT 1.7 MILLION PEOPLE. JUST TO PUT THAT IN CONTEXT, THAT’S ABOUT 20% OF HONG KONG’S ENTIRE POPULATION. IT’S A MEASURE, THOUGH, OF JUST HOW TENSE THINGS ARE HERE. THAT SOME MEDIA ARE ACTUALLY ARE REFERRING TO THE NUMBER OF TEAR GAS FREE DAYS IN THE CITY. AFTER THE EVENT WRAPPED UP THERE WERE NO SIGNIFICANT CONFRONTATIONS BETWEEN POLICE AND PROTESTORS. MAKES IT THE THIRD NIGHT AND THIRD TEAR GAS FREE NIGHT IN A ROW HERE. IT IS ALSO HARD TO QUANTIFY EXACTLY HOW MUCH CLOSER THIS HAS BROUGHT ORGANIZERS TO THEIR GOAL. THEY’VE ASKED FOR FIVE THINGS BROADLY SPEAKING FOCUSED ON PROTECTING BEIJING’S INFLUENCE HERE AND HALTING EXTRADITION BILL AND ALSO ASKING FOR INQUIRY INTO THE EVENTS OF THE LAST THREE MONTHS. I SPOKE TO BONNIE.>>WE NEVER WANT TO HAVE WEEKS OF PROTESTS CARRYING ON. WE WANT REAL RESULTS. WE ARE TRYING TO CONTACT CARRIE LAM AND SEE IF SHE REALLY HAVE SINCERITY TO TALK TO US.>>Reporter: CARRIE LAM IS THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF HONG KONG AND HASN’T MET OR SHOWN INCLINATION TO MEET WITH ANY OF THE PROTESTORS OVER THE LAST NUMBER OF MONTHS. IT’S ALSO VERY HARD TO SEE THAT ANYONE APPOINTED BY BEIJING TO LOOK AFTER THE TERRITORY WOULD OFFER ANY KIND OF CONCESSIONS THAT WOULD DIMINISH CHINA’S INFLUENCE. FOR THE MOMENT IT REALLY DOES APPEAR TO BE AT A CROSS ROADS. AND THAT IS WORRYING FOR MANY. BECAUSE THEN WHAT YOU HAVE LEFT IS A LOT OF RADICALIZED PROTESTORS WHO OVER THE LAST NUMBER OF WEEKS HAD A LOT OF ENCOUNTERS THAT HAVE ENDED BADLY WITH POLICE SO THERE’S GOING TO BE SOME FRUSTRATION THERE AND THE CONCERN IS THAT COULD INCREASE THE VIOLENCE STILL. IT WILL STILL BE ONGOING IN THE EVENINGS HERE. CHRIS BROWN, CBC NEWS, HONG KONG.>>Anita: BUCKINGHAM PALACE IS DEALING WITH A GROWING PR DISASTER.
