Select Option 3 and the ticket should be quashed.

If you are given a court date, attend and point out the mistake on the ticket.

This does not mean you are necessarily 'scott free'.... you may be issued another ticket by the officer upon discovering his mistake. But hopefully not.

If you choose option 2, the JP will not quash the ticket. You are pleading guilty with an explanation, so you'll take whatever fine they give you plus the associated demerit points. That would basically be saying: "I'm guilty... but please throw out the charge."

No. If you can't attend, get a paralegal to represent you.

Actually... if you go in there on the day of trial, they can fix the mistake of no set fine. But if you default and don't appear when given a trial date, the "London v. Young procedure" takes over, so if you get convicted, you'd appeal it based on the ticket having a fatal error, and then the ticket would be quashed. The procedure doesn't make sense, in that a fatal error should result in the ticket being thrown out regardless, but that's not how the Provincial Offences Act was written...

dont show up
ticket gets quashed
Don't even bother selecting option 3, do nothing and let the ticket go into default. Once the ticket goes into default it will be sent to JP who will review it, if the ticket is correct and regular on its face the JP is supposed to impose the set fine on the ticket. If the ticket is not correct and regular on its face the JP is supposed to quash the ticket. Since yours is not correct and regular on its face it should get quashed, if it doesn't you have good grounds for appeal as set out in the London vs. Young case.
