What do COVID-19, religion, and political figures have in common? They’re all part of a long list of licence plates that were rejected by the Government of Ontario this year.
From May 1 to May 31, the provincial government rejected 3,887 licence plates that were deemed to be either inappropriate or unreadable.
Of course this year, COVID was in a fair number of plates, which include: COVID; COVID 19: NO COVID; and FKCOVID.
And references to the pandemic were also rejected like PANDEMIK, THEVIRUS, and MOISTLY — most likely from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s infamous incident saying masks prevent people from “speaking moistly.”

Plates are rejected on numerous grounds for being too political, violent, sexual, or on religious grounds, or profanity.
The most rejected plates were for religious grounds and difficult readability.
Some tried to have phrases instead of numbers like R4PTRS, 5UPERDAD, RAVNCL4W and 5CHMITTY, which were given the boot.
And, the province was strict around rejecting plates that had references to the devil, evil, heaven, and hell.
