The controversial ride-hailing company Uber has been in the press a lot recently, as the Mayor of London has refused to let the company continue operating in the city. However, it's not just Britain where Uber is having problems – the firm is reportedly pulling out of the Canadian province of Quebec.

Last week, the region's government announced new legislation that would bring Uber in line with traditional taxi operators. The regulations would force Uber drivers to undergo more stringent background checks, have their cars inspected every 12 months, and undergo 35 hours of training before they're allowed behind the wheel.
