When Ottawa resident Eric Leclair heard the news about the National Capital Commission shutting down a kids' lemonade stand for not having a permit, it brought back some vivid memories. 

In 1988, Leclair was an entrepreneurial teen who started up a greenhouse selling plants and vegetables to as many as 400 customers a day.

That is until the NCC stepped in and tried to shut him down.

Watch the video above to see what happened to Leclair when his greenhouse business grew too big.
