License to ‘Grabher’ denied
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.
