(CBC/NBC) Anger erupted on the streets of Toronto Wednesday.

In a shocking scene caught on video, a cab driver held onto what he believed to be an Uber driver's car.

He was dragged more than 65 feet before releasing the vehicle.

The incident was fueled by a city-wide protest by taxi drivers.

They say the ride-hailing service is flouting city bylaws and cutting into their bottom line.
