Media Advisory - The second of 10 Canada 150 stamps to be unveiled on Parliament Hill

Canada Post continues its series of celebratory stories in Ottawa

OTTAWA, April 28, 2017 /CNW/ - Canada Post will continue to celebrate Canada 150 by unveiling the second of 10 special commemorative stamps where the proud moment being commemorated actually occurred (details below).

Each of the 10 stamps, to be unveiled separately over the next five weeks, tells an exceptional story about a Canadian achievement, milestone, or unforgettable moment from the past 50 years (since Canada's centennial in 1967). These multimedia events will be Canada Post at its best as the country's storyteller, a role anchored in its iconic national stamp program.

These moments of great significance were chosen by Canada Post's independent Stamp Advisory Committee – 12 members of the public who are experts in their field, including historians, archivists, philatelists, graphic designers and others.
