OTTAWA, Sept. 4, 2018 /CNW/ - Over five consecutive days starting Monday, September 10, Canada Post will unveil a stamp issue to pay tribute to five groups of Canada's emergency responders. One stamp will be unveiled each day at a separate event across the country to honor a different kind of emergency responder.
The stamps express the respect and gratitude of Canadians to emergency responders, professional and volunteer. With their skills, with their service and by their sacrifices, they find and rescue the lost; treat and save the seriously ill and injured; and protect us, our homes, businesses, and communities.
