Hopefully act as deterrent for illegal parking (something that plagues the core) and secondly provide some much needed revenue for a city that artificially maintains low property tax rates in the face of crumbling and rising costs of infrastructure.

At least that's my stance ....

Yup, but for me its primarily the former. The deterrent needs teeth or peopel ignore it. And it is a huge congestion problem.

Hmm makes sense, but there should be certain zones with fees according to traffic imo. Because in my case I stopped in the park for 3-5min so my dog could take a piss, there was no cars driving around (tbh didn't even expect parking enforcement to be there).. I was surprised/pissed to find 150bucks ticket on the windshield.
Those guys are like ninjas :cookie:

People weren't ignoring 60$ fines, they would just fight them and often win. Same will continue to happen. As for congestion problems, i agree. The overall parking situation in the city is ridiculous and is a rip off.

Also, for those of us who enjoy a bit of social engineering, you can potentially use a market-based solution to drive more public transit use. I'm not sure if, for example, Toronto has parking rates pegged to transit rates.

For next time - if you have a Google account (Gmail) and use google chrome, your bookmarks and browsing preferences will be saved across all computers that you use google chrome on, as long as you're signed into your account. Would have saved you the trouble haha.

i'm not sick of winter, i am just fed up with these arctic vortexes. I am totally fine with -10 degrees and warmer, but otherwise it's a just too cold.

ALthough i think it's supposed to start getting back to normal soon.

Just bought an Asus gaming laptop off a guy on Kijiji for 900 bucks. Pretty much brand new top of the line n all. This thing is a BEAST.

Totally crushes my old laptop in comparison to how it was when it was new.


All I have to say is FUCK SONY VAIO!
