Curling fans will be able to show their appreciation for the sport with new specialty licence plates.
The province and MPI, in partnership with CurlManitoba, announced the plates on Monday at MTS Centre, where the 2013 Roar of the Rings is currently in full swing.
The plates will cost $70, with $30 of that fee going toward the CurlManitoba Curling For Life Endowment Fund.
“Curlers are passionate about the game and this new specialty plate will give them the chance to show off that love to their fellow motorists,” said Justice Minister Andrew Swan, minister responsible for MPI. “The plate will also contribute to a fantastic local organization that helps sustain and build programs that grow, develop and market the sport of curling in Manitoba.”
The plates will be available December 9 through more than 300 Autopac agents across the province.
