Some people like to express themselves via their license plates. By paying a little extra, you can have personalized plates as long as it passes the government’s vulgarity litmus test.
There was nothing profane about Daniel D’Aloisio’s vanity plate that read: VI6SIX
But the province wants him to surrender it because one person complained after interpreting it as 666, a.k.a., the mark of the beast.
Since somebody – a Satanist or a Jesus Freak or just a garden variety busybody – actually went to the Ministry and complained, Daniel has to give it up.
The ministry could have, and should have said that they’d already vetted and approved the plate but instead, they contacted Daniel and ordered him to surrender his vanity plate.
Watch my video to find out what that cryptic collection of numbers and symbols actually meant to him and why the Ontario government are hypocrites on the number 666.
When it comes to licence plates, they really don’t hold the high ground considering how they treat taxpayers, vanity plates or not.
