The sale of special Winnipeg Jets license plates has raised more than $800,000 so far for children’s charities.

Premier Greg Selinger said on Friday that 27,000 of the specialty plates have been sold in the last year by more than 300 Autopac agents. The plates cost $70 and $30 of that goes to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation.
