This is a small collection I am currently assembling in 2021.   For each province and territory of Canada, other than the two for which I have long runs,
I plan to have and show here an older plate from the 1970's or before, alongside one from more modern times.    For the older plate I have chosen
my favourite from my father's collection if there was one. For the modern plate I am choosing and obtaining a plate of a pattern or type that I like, without
 regard to them being from any particular year.   This is a collection of ordinary plates for the most part, mostly with relatively little value.

Someday I may attempt to add a third column, to the left, for older than old plates, from the 40's or earlier, but this is not a priority for me at the moment.



Before displaying the Canadian plates, here is my plate from St. Pierre and Miquelon.   This of course has no business being shown on my Canada page, but it does have almost honorary Canadian status, as this French territory is just 10 km (6 miles) distant from the closest Canadian land along the Newfoundland coast.   While it is very much French, there is a passenger ferry to Fortune, NF and as well air service to St. John's, Halifax, Moncton and Montreal.
