Thanks for your help.
It doesn't sound like he did either.Service on owner
15(4) The issuing provincial offences officer may serve the parking infraction notice on the owner of the vehicle identified in the notice,
(a) by affixing it to the vehicle in a conspicuous place at the time of the alleged infraction; or
(b) by delivering it personally to the person having care and control of the vehicle at the time of the alleged infraction.
The offence is complete upon you illegally parking. Moving your car to a legal parking spot doesn't mean you weren't illegally parked.
I believe if the case is heard on merit, you're going to lose.
not later. I don't believe you can mail a parking ticket to the owner.at the time of the alleged infraction

Proceeding, parking infraction
14.1 In addition to the procedure set out in Part III for commencing a proceeding by laying an information, a proceeding in respect of a parking infraction may be commenced in accordance with this Part.
COMMENCEMENT OF PROCEEDING BY INFORMATION
Commencement of proceeding by information
21. (1) In addition to the procedure set out in Parts I and II for commencing a proceeding by the filing of a certificate, a proceeding in respect of an offence may be commenced by laying an information.
In my view, the court would find that he did, even though he finished serving another car first.
As to how the judge sees it, I guess there's two approaches:
1. cross-examination where you ask was the car parked illegally when you placed the ticket on it?
2. testifying that once you recognized the inadvertent wrong you focussed on minimizing the harm: "When I realized I was not parked where I was allowed to be, I moved the car."
