Just to carry on with what @Coruscanti Cognoscente was talking about in the Ontario Line thread. Here’s a picture of a Fishbowl with blue Ontario plates:Maybe I'm in the minority but I liked the effort to change the license plates, if not the execution. I liked the white characters on blue background, and I liked the Trillium logo instead of the Crown. Like, can you believe in the 21st Century, Ontario still has a crown on our license plate? Like, really?
I was just in Florida and they have their classic plates with the oranges, and at least those are more colourful than anything we have. And in addition, they can choose to have their county name instead of "Sunshine State" written on the plates. And their various special plates look substantially different from the standard plate, not just a tiny graphic like our special plates.
It pains me how boring our plates are, and how little they've changed since I was a kid.
If they want to keep the blue on white, fine, but at least update them to have the Trillium instead of the Crown.
Sorry, this rant should probably be in another thread.
I really do appreciate Ford trying to bring back the (historic) blue plates, but I don’t appreciate him giving up on them. If my parents told me correctly, Ontario used to alternate on different years between blue on white, or white on blue. At the very least, we should now have an option between at least those two colour combinations.
Heck, even Manitoba has a better variety.
