The Ontario government has announced that a new "enhanced" licence plate is currently in development, and will be available within three weeks.
The Progressive Conservative government said Thursday that the latest model of the province's plates will need to be replaced once the manufacturer has fixed "a problem" that makes them difficult to read in the dark.
House leader Paul Calandra said the government expects the company (3M Canada) will foot the bill for the repair and replacement of the plates.
Approximately 49,000 of the new plates have been distributed to Ontarians, and an additional 134,000 are currently in Service Ontario locations.
The government said people who already have the new plates will receive the enhanced version in the mail.
