Prairie contractor license plate battle ends
February 2, 2018
Alberta construction contractors can once again feel safe driving into Saskatchewan with Alberta license plates on their truck.
Saskatchewan has repealed its ban on vehicles with Alberta license plates on Saskatchewan government project sites.
Alberta had wanted to impose a tax on beer shipped in from out of the province, a ruling that is now before an appeal board. Saskatchewan hit back with the plate ban.
Steven Bonk, Saskatchewan’s economy minster, told reporters, “As we mentioned in the  throne speech, we will retaliate for what Alberta did in regards to the beer.”
