I don't see why it would be illegal. Silly looking, yes. Illegal, probably not.

Illegal.

(a) without the licence required by this Act for the operation of that motor vehicle or trailer having been first obtained and being then in force,

(b) without displaying on it, in the manner prescribed, the number plates issued or designated by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia or otherwise prescribed to be displayed on that motor vehicle or trailer for the current licence year of that motor vehicle or trailer, or

(c) that has displayed on it a number plate other than those issued or designated by the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia or otherwise prescribed to be displayed on that motor vehicle or trailer for the current licence year of that motor vehicle or trailer.

But... my cousin's buddy's aunt's mother's housekeeper drove around for 10 years with one and got pulled over every week for speeding and not once did he ever get hassled for his euro-plate!
