Man forced to surrender his "offensive Star Trek license plate

A Canadian man has been ordered to surrender his Star Trek-themed license plate. The plate read "ASIMIL8." (Thanks, Matthew!)]

Via CTV News:

Troller got a phone call Wednesday from someone at Manitoba Public Insurance, who he says told him two people had complained that the word “assimilate” is offensive to indigenous people.

The dictionary definitions of assimilate include “to absorb into the cultural tradition of a population or group” and “to take into the mind and thoroughly understand.”

Troller disagrees that it’s offensive.
