I see nothing wrong with our provincial government producing multiple specialty licence plates (Too much on our plates?, March 15).

What Bartley Kives calls "pandering" ignores the fact proposals for the plates go through a rigorous approval process, including a business plan for those who apply for the plate.

Kudos to our provincial government for tapping into our willingness to spend money to support causes and organizations we believe in via our licence plate.
