Well, the timing of Ontario’s reopening couldn’t be any better!
With the return of indoor dining coming up on January 31st, at least at 50% capacity, you now have more of a chance to get out of any local parking tickets just by keeping the receipt!
The city of Barrie announced a project for people to get parking tickets cancelled simply by supporting local, and showing local restaurant receipts in lieu of paying their parking ticket. That sounds like a delicious win-win situation!
How it works is simple: if you get a ticket in a paid parking area, you can have the ticket nulled if you provide a receipt from a local restaurant, of equal or greater value, within five days of the infraction. This may take the cake, no pun intended, as a great excuse to convince your partner to order in or go out to eat (after the 31st)!
“Hey hun, I got another parking ticket…looks like we’ve got to go to the Canadian Brewhouse!” You gotta support local!
