Ontario's new blue licence plates hitting the road

With a new colour scheme and a new motto, the revamped tags are attracting attention.

Fresh colour scheme, motto getting mixed reviews

Ontario's very new, very blue licence plates are hitting the roads, and people are noticing.


As of Feb. 1, all new plates issued for passenger vehicles will be two-tone blue with white numbers and letters instead of the opposite.


There's another key change: The motto "A Place to Grow" replaces "Yours to Discover."

The line comes from the song A Place to Stand, the province's unofficial anthem since Expo 67. 

People are starting to notice the new tags, and have been offering their reviews.

The … interesting

The 'friendly' Manitoba take
