Duly Quoted: Paula Fletcher

“There are many situations which call for a short term permit. Spur of the moment decisions to stay overnight, either for romantic or ‘too much merriment’ reasons lead to a $30 ticket.”
—Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) in a letter to the public works committee, asking staff to consider creating an “overnighter” parking permit. Noting that her constituents have contacted her to request shorter-term parking permits, Fletcher also suggested a weekend parking pass so out-of-town visitors needn’t pay for an entire week.
