Parking meters need old loonies and toonies

Time is almost “up” for the old parking meters in Quebec City. Until the new modern pay parking stations are installed this fall, be sure to keep a supply of the pre-2012 one- and two-dollar coins on hand to put in the old meters. The new coins are too light and will not register the time you pay for. Time is money, so they say, but the new money won’t buy you any time.
