No New Manitoba Budget Shoes

No New Budget Shoes

WINNIPEG - It's budget day in Manitoba but the finance minister will not be wearing a new pair of shoes.

Cameron Friesen changed up the tradition and instead presented the province's Ukrainian community with shoeboxes filled with items for refugees fleeing Ukraine.

Manitoba, like other parts of the world, is preparing for the arrival of Ukrainians escaping their war-torn country.

Friesen says he saw the budget shoe tradition as an opportunity to stand with Ukraine.
