Sale of New BC Plates Hits Milestone
Prince George, B.C. – 10,000 and counting.
That’s how many new BC Parks specialty license plates have been sold in less than eight weeks after they were unveiled in January.
The three designs – of a Kermode bear found only in B.C., the Purcell Mountains and Porteau Cove – are available for $50 and for an annual renewal fee of $40 to keep the plate.
“The license plates allow motorists to show their support, while ensuring BC Parks has additional funds to invest in new programs and improvements,” says the Ministry of Environment. “To date, approximately $150,000 will go toward the Park Enhancement fund as a result of the plate sales.”
