WINNIPEG – For the first time in it’s 71 year history, the Red River Ex has been cancelled. Like so many other big events, it’s because of CoVid-19. Exhibition Association CEO Garth Rogerson points out they’ve faced many years of really bad weather but nothing like a pandemic which jeopardizes people’s health and safety. He says this decision will have a $16 million dollar impact on Manitoba’s economy. Ex tickets purchased online can be used next June or email for a refund.
