Pretty Plates

Apparently Alberta is getting a new license plate design. I could care less what the new plates look like, but the whole slogan debate is quite interesting. There really isn't anything wrong with 'Wild Rose Country', mostly this whole thing is just an excuse to spend taxpayer's money. Some of the suggestions are interesting though. Apparently the front-runner is 'Strong and Free', yeah I don't like that at all. Sure, it's Alberta's motto (well in latin anyways, fortis et liber) but who actually knew that? Sounds too American to me.
If you go to the slogan debate link and scroll to the bottom, there's a list of some alternative suggestions. Most of them are pretty funny. My top three are: In Gopher We Trust, Klein Free 1 Year and Counting, and Alberta-Help Wanted.
