Whitehorse’s food bank fundraiser: A parking ticket becomes ‘meal ticket’

Whitehorse city council has a great holiday tradition. If you get a parking ticket during the holidays you can pay as a donation to the Food Bank.

Staff at City Hall tell me they love the policy because people paying their fines are more cheerful about it.

It’s even common for people to over-pay their tickets. You can’t say that about a regular fine.
