“A Place to Grow” will be the new slogan on the licence plates of Ontario drivers.
Two sources in the government say the motto will replace “Yours To Discover” on the plates of personal vehicles.
“Open for Business” is the slogan on commercial plates. Critics are already pointing out that the new licence plate slogan sounds suspiciously like the PC political slogan.
“A Place To Grow” comes from the song “A Place to Stand”, which has been an unofficial anthem for Ontario since its use in a film that played at the province’s pavilion at Expo 67.
Here are slogans on other provinces’ licence plates:
• British Columbia: Beautiful British Columbia
• Alberta: Wild Rose Country
• Saskatchewan: Land of Living Skies
• Manitoba: Friendly Manitoba
• Quebec: Je me souviens
• New Brunswick: No slogan
• Nova Scotia: Canada’s Ocean Playground
• Prince Edward Island: Birthplace of Confederation
• Newfoundland and Labrador: No slogan -CINEWS
