Li­cense to ‘Grab­her’ de­nied

New York Post - - NEWS - Linda Mas­sarella

A Cana­dian man named Lorne Grab­her says he’s be­ing squeezed by po­lit­i­cally cor­rect bu­reau­crats — who barred him from us­ing his sur­name as a per­son­al­ized li­cense plate be­cause it’s too sug­ges­tive. The Nova Sco­tia res­i­dent claims he has used a plate read­ing “GRAB­HER” on his ve­hi­cles for 27 years with­out in­ci­dent — un­til it was sud­denly re­voked last Jan­uary for be­ing “in­ap­pro­pri­ate,” ac­cord­ing to the Cana­dian Press.

“I am in­creas­ingly dis­mayed by the hy­per­sen­si­tiv­ity of some peo­ple who are ‘of­fended’ by ev­ery lit­tle thing they en­counter,” he said in a law­suit de­mand­ing that he be al­lowed to keep the plate.

Grab­her (right) said in his Nova Sco­tia Supreme Court af­fi­davit that he doesn’t un­der­stand how his plate is banned when there are towns all over Canada with names such as Dildo, Red In­dian Lake, Blow Me Down Provin­cial Park, Crotch Lake and Swastika.

A spokesman for the provin­cial Trans­port Depart­ment said the agency de­clined to re­new the plate af­ter some­one com­plained. And they also in­sisted that the move was not re­lated to an ob­scene com­ment once made by Pres­i­dent Trump.
