A Winnipeg man has lost a court challenge to keep a Star Trek-inspired vanity licence plate Manitoba Public Insurance had deemed offensive to Indigenous people.

Queen’s Bench Justice Sheldon Lanchberry says M-P-I was within its rights when it ordered Nicholas Troller to turn in a previously approved personalized licence plate that read: "ASIMIL8" (assimilate).

He says the word in the historical context of the Indigenous experience in Manitoba could not be more apparent.

Bonify says its licence to sell medical and recreational pot has been reinstated by Health Canada.

The company says three senior managers have been let go. (Global)
