Rows and rows of cars in the Park Angrignon parking lot were ticketed Sunday as the drivers walked to raise money for MS.
Over a dozen employees from the Shriners Hospital participated, among a thousand others, to raise money for their colleague.
“There was a lot of cars that had tickets, they figured they would have a field day,” Shriners employee Louise Turgeon said of the $50 ticket she found on her car.
“After all that work, you would think that they would give us a break, but no they just took advantage, that’s how I feel,” Mena, another Shriners hospital employee said of her ticket.
“I’m just very disappointed with the city of Montreal.”
The Montreal police said it wouldn’t comment on the case but that it was the borough's responsibility to coordinate parking with them.
The MS society says every year it asks for free parking but it isn’t possible.
A spokesperson said they received complaints about the tickets but that the paid parking was advertised.
