Think about it for a moment. The Ministry, ergo the Province, has told this man that his family name is offensive. I wouldn't just be taking this to court, I'd also be taking before the Human Rights Commission and suing the snot out of the province for it. Too bad he can't find out who the original complainant was so he could sue the snot out them too. Maybe when it starts costing progtards actual money for being whiny little a$$wipes, they'll quit whining and complaining about every little thing.

The name isn't good enough for a licence plate ... but it's okay on all his ID, the drivers licence, the vehicle ownership - not to mention the name under which he pays all those fees. If the name's good enough to put on the door (expression, nit-pickers) it's good enough to put on the plate

As I said the last time this came up, my neighbor Dan Blowme has the same problem.

The big issue is that he's had the plate for 26 years, and all of a sudden someone is offended because of Trump. I think the fact that his use of the plate pre-dates Trumps comments make that argument invalid.

N.S. man wins $750 from province amid lengthy battle over 'Grabher' licence plate

HALIFAX — The Nova Scotia government has to reimburse a retiree for a court skirmish over a report suggesting a licence plate bearing his last name supports sexual violence against women.
Lorne Grabher has been trying to reinstate his personalized licence plate since it was revoked in 2016 by the Registrar of Motor Vehicles following an anonymous complaint about the plate.
In February, Grabher’s lawyer fought to strike a Crown report by a McGill University professor linking the plate text — GRABHER — to derogatory comments about women made by U.S. President Donald Trump.
Grabher was awarded $750 in court costs in a decision released this week, but he won’t actually be getting a cheque.
The money will offset the costs — also $750 — that Grabher had been ordered to pay after the Crown succeeded in getting portions of his affidavit struck earlier this year.
Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Pierre Muise said the same costs award “will do justice between the parties.”
Grabher’s trial will resume in early September, where he will make constitutional arguments against the registrar’s regulations and its decision to revoke the plate.
