Kingston, Ont., residents may not feel so bad about getting a downtown parking ticket for the next few weeks.
The city has brought back its annual Toys for Tickets initiative where a parking ticket can be paid for with a toy of at least the value of the ticket.
Since 2005, the city has collected more than 3,600 toys for Kingston children through the initiative.
The toys are delivered to a local toy drive in time to be distributed to children in need over the holidays.
