Improperly written parking ticket: is it valid?

We got a parking ticket in the city of Ottawa (we live here), but the officer made an error in writing the ticket.

There are two dates on the ticket (1) the date of infraction (12/06/2014...June 12, 2014). The other is the Due Date, after which the fine increases by 50%. For the due date the officer wrote 27/06/2012, that is, June 27, 2012. (Our time machine is in for repair, so we cannot pay it by the incorrect due date.)
Is this ticket still valid because of the incorrect due date?
(We have reason and some grounds to contest the ticket on other grounds, but would not be worth a court appearance.)
