I thought that Canada was pretty progressive when it came to civil services. Strange that they still have parking meters. Here in PDX we got rid of them years ago and replaced with kiosks.

“Apple’s new store in Montreal has three parking meters on the street in front of it. The city is in the middle of a campaign to reduce downtown parking. In Apple’s ever-conscientious attempt to improve design, they offered to reimburse the city for the parking meters and their revenue if the city would remove them. Answer: Non — because ‘We’ve never done it before, so we can’t.'”
