WINNIPEG — Manitoba has a new specialty licence plate to honour the men and women serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.
“By purchasing this plate, Manitobans will know a portion of each sale will go directly to educational scholarships for qualifying military members, their spouses, partners or children who wish to study here in Manitoba,” said Healthy Living and Seniors Minister Deanne Crothers, special envoy for military affairs.
The plate displays the yellow Support our Troops ribbon, accompanied by a camouflage background. The plate will be available for sale Monday, June 8 and will cost $70, with $30 of that to be used to fund scholarships to qualified applicants.
Manitobans interested in the plates will be able to purchase them at any of more than 300 Autopac agents.
