Ontario government shifts blame for hard-to-read licence plates to the manufacturer - 2020-02-19
A day after insisting there's nothing wrong with Ontario's new double-blue licence plates, Premier Doug Ford's embattled administration is shifting blame to the manufacturer amid a chorus of complaints the plates are hard to read in the dark.
"Public safety is the top priority of our government. Premier Ford has personally spoken to the president of 3M Canada on two separate occasions seeking an immediate solution (to) the issue identified with their product," his office said late Wednesday afternoon.
"The government of Ontario expects 3M to stand by their product. We are working with them on a path forward and will have more to say shortly."
