com­mended for his con­tri­bu­tions to the in­tro­duc­tion of the first-ever “Sup­port Our Troops” ve­hi­cle li­cence plates in

Man­i­toba. LCdr (ret’d) Stiff was in­volved in the li­cence plate pro­ject from its in­cep­tion, dur­ing his time as Com­mand­ing Of­fi­cer of HMCS Chip­pawa, Win­nipeg’s Naval Re­serve Di­vi­sion. He was an in­te­gral part of de­vel­op­ing the cri­te­ria for the schol­ar­ship por­tion of the pro­gram. Each plate costs $70, of which $30 goes to a schol­ar­ship fund for fam­i­lies of mil­i­tary mem­bers who at­tend post­sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion at a col­lege or univer­sity in Man­i­toba. The plates have a yel­low “Sup­port Our Troops” rib­bon with a cam­ou­flage back­ground and are now avail­able through­out the prov­ince. LCdr Stiff was pre­sented with one of the very first li­cence plates in the of­fi­cial un­veil­ing on Cana­dian Armed Forces Day, June 7, 2015.
