Nova Scotia Says No to Personalized License Plate After 25 Years

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."
