It was a beautiful day in Humber Bay Park. The seniors group had just finished an hour-long walk along the water, a regular event organized to warm them up before a twice-weekly fitness class at a nearby community hall.

They didn't get far before the bylaw officer's truck appeared.

"We were just leaving the park to go back to the hall and (the city worker) parked his car right in our path," said Margaret Guthrie, 71, describing the Sept. 21 encounter. "He totally obstructed our pathway."
