Default Calgary Flames Licence Plates now Available

According to the Flames twitter account, you can now pick up a Flames licence plate at the local registry office. Money raised from the sale of the plate goes to the Flames Foundation.

So they're just going to keep the money then?

I kid, I kid.

When the Flames move to Seattle would we get a refund?

I kid, I kid....or do I?

That took way too long, but nice to see. Surprised to see proceeds going to the foundations. Could likely have charged more and seen a tidy little profit for the province.

Get someone to register with this plate, then register back to their old plate and mail it to you? Unless you have an in with a registry, that's the only way I see it working.

Keep your old plate, or you'll have to get one of the dumb new ones with 7 characters.

Oh wow, the Oilers version is seriously ugly. Who thought splitting the colours that way would work well? Everything looks off center. I'm glad the Flames plate keeps it simple.

Nothing like 'Painful Orange' to really highlight a terrible team.

This feels like something begging to be stolen for someone's wall, no?

Anyone else see future road rage incidents based solely off of these plates? #brakeforred #speedupfororange

Looks like you buy / order the plate for $75. You don't have to register it, though...or, you can when you desire.

Clever way for the province to help us identify Shelbyvillians on the road. Not always easy to see who's wearing sweatpants with dress shoes when you're driving.

According to Crowfoot Plates, you can't actually order them until the 19th. Then, they're mailed to you from Edmonton. Also, heads up, if the vehicle is co-registered (hubby and wife, for example) you'll both need to go in to get it.

Ask people in Saskatchewan if their Roughriders plates got stolen

I see somebody messing with cars because they have a Flames/Oilers plate... but I'd take the risk.

I was happy to see this today, but not sure I want to replace my Support Our Troops plate.

They're both terribly tacky. Will not be purchasing.
