In Ontario if there is a error like this it is fatal IF YOU DO NOT RESPOND TO THE TICKET. You must completely ignore the ticket and keep the original in a safe place. Do not respond and do not pay it and do not plead not guilty and do not ask for early resolution.
If you ignore it, then yes it go away. In a month or two, call the provincial offences office and ask the status of the ticket to confirm.
