Most exotic licence plate you've seen in Canada?

Vancouver always has plenty of out-of-province plates driving around, I've seen all 10 provinces, YT, NWT, and most of the US states. I've also seen a handful of Mexican plates, plus Germany, Switzerland, and even one from Argentina. I'm always intrigued when I see one from outside Canada/US. But this one I spotted parked on a side street in Vancouver today takes the cake. The (former Soviet) republic of Georgia! The owners have a blog: http://drive2world.com

What exotic ones have you seen? Sorry, but Canadians from outside BC, MB, and ON who put foreign plates on the fronts of their vehicles for fun do not count!

Wow! Good for them. Bonus on using a fairly reliable car with easy parts access around the world. This is the Isuzu Rodeo / previous gen Honda Passport in North America.

In the GTA, I’ve seen all of the provinces but so have haven’t seen the elusive polar bear or any of the other territories yet.

I have seen the “Canada” plates that the Department of National Defence uses.

I’ve also seen several of the red Diplomatic plates that Ontario issues.

I’ve seen German plates on a few occasions; saw a pair of BMW touring motorcycles once in Toronto with Polish plates.

In and around the Banff/ Lake Louise area, you’ll sometimes see JP plates on those micro van campers (rightHD). You also see occasionally DE plates on small motor homes/ caravans

I have a rental right now while honda tries to decipher what the rubbing sound coming from my front left drivers side wheel well area is + the creaky clutch pedal.

Licence plate is from Nova Scotia, car is from enterprise.

It was literally in the shape of a polar bear.
TIL, NWT license plate is exotic in Ontario.

Saw an Austrian plate on the 401 driving from Montreal back to Toronto a couple summers ago. It was a camper van.
