The Paris city council member in charge of housing said Thursday that he would propose outlawing home rentals via Airbnb and other websites in the city center, accusing the company of forcing residents out of the French capital.He has had Airbnb and its rivals in his sights for years, and recently published a book assailing the US giant titled "Airbnb, the Uberised City".He wants to forbid any short-term tourist rentals of entire apartments in the First, Second, Third and Fourth Arrondissements of Paris, home to some of the world's most popular sites including Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Louvre museum.Last month Paris said it had fined home rental platforms 1.38 million euros ($1.6 million) from January to August 15 -- compared with 1.3 million euros for 2017 as a whole.
