Re: FIFA U-20 tournament

Canada is in the spotlight of the world as the host of FIFA Under-20 soccer, and Ottawa is a host city. This is a time to be proud of this city, but instead I am ashamed. The city, instead of communicating on their website to 26,000-plus soccer fans that there is no parking at Lansdowne Park, sends parking bylaw officers in full force. It’s a shame!

Sunday evening hundreds of cars were ticketed, including ours, about 15 minutes after the start of the match.


The City of Ottawa had a chance to shine as a world-class city; instead it decided to act like a money-grabbing thug.
