For 25 years, a Nova Scotia man named Lorne Grabher was permitted to drive around with a license plate spelling out his last name. But late last year, he was informed that his plate would be canceled because someone could “misinterpret it as a socially unacceptable slogan.”
Apparently someone complained about the plate, which isn’t good enough for Grabher, who bought it years ago as a birthday gift for his late father. “Where does the province of Nova Scotia get the right to discriminate against a person’s name?” he tells the CBC. "I guess now I'm going to have to take my name out of the phone book because a person's been offended by it."
