The Canadian Government Sued Uber To Force It To Open Its Books

    The government says it tried to audit the ridesharing company but Uber stonewalled for six months.

    The Canada Revenue Agency is fighting to audit Uber, BuzzFeed Canada has learned, and the CRA won't say whether thousands of Uber drivers across Canada could also be affected.

    A CRA spokesman would not say whether individual drivers could be swept up in the audit. As of last September there were 16,000 Uber drivers in Toronto alone, the company claimed.
