COVID-19: Ottawa man fined $880 for walking dog through Local Park


A Britannia man who was fined $880 on the weekend while walking his dog in Britannia Park is annoyed over what he feels is the city's unclear messaging about what is and isn't permitted under the province's COVID-19-related emergency orders.

Corey Yanofsky was walking his dog through the park on Sunday morning when a city bylaw officer ticketed him for failing to comply with the Ontario Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.
