    Default Canadian licence plates

    Anyone know why some cars have licence plates with "Canada" on them instead of the province? They also have about five digits on them instead of the normal seven or eight. I pass one every once in a while, and can never figure why they don't have a provincial plate.
    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies. Still need to decide on final keeper.

    Forwards: Malkin, Stamkos, Ovechkin, Hall, Kunitz, Benn, Spezza, Iginla, Backes, Gaborik, Brown, Weiss, Kesler, Whitney, Brassard, Ryder
    Defence: Letang, Schultz, Carle, Enstrom
    Goalies: Price, Lundqvist, Ramo

    They are government, usually Army vehicles.

    Edit: they are possibly restricted to army vehicles but I'm not 100% sure.

    It wasn't an army car (unless it was disguised as a civilian car). I'm in Ottawa, so government makes sense. I know they are not diplomatic plates because those are usually red.

    I think it is all Federal government vehicles, just in Calgary we only ever see army ones.

    It is all federal vehicles. If you go to Banff you'll see all the park ranger vehicles have the Canada plate as well.

    In Ottawa could be any number of federal programs.
