Premier confirms changes coming to Ontario licence plates

Last Updated Apr 2, 2019 at 7:55 pm EDT

“Yours to Discover” has been a fixture along the bottom of Ontario licence plates since 1982 but the province has confirmed that it’s about to change.

Premier Doug Ford said on Monday that Ontarians will have to wait until next week’s provincial budget to find out more details.

“I can’t comment until the budget, but we are going to make some changes there so I can’t divulge exactly what they said,” Ford said.

The phrase “Open For Business,” which adorns road signs near the border, is being considered for black and white commercial plates used by trucks and other industrial vehicles.

However, the blue and white passenger vehicle plates will carry a different motto.

Sources told The Toronto Star the PC campaign slogan “For the People” is not one of the options being considered.

The province is also reportedly looking at following the lead of Quebec and other American states by getting rid of the front bumper license plate.

The provincial budget will be announced on April 11.
