OTTAWA, June 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Today is Friday the 13th and Canada Post has issued five stamps that are sure to get the hairs raising on the back of your neck. The collection is the first in a multi-year series telling some of our country's most inexplicable and popular ghostly tales.
In every region across Canada, there are reports of apparitions, eerie sounds, phantom lights and spirits trapped between this world and the next. The five stamps feature the Maritimes' Northumberland Strait; Quebec's Count Frontenac; Ontario's Fort George; the St. Louis Ghost Train in Saskatchewan; and Alberta's Ghost Bride.
"This collection of five Haunted Canada stamps brings ghost stories well-known in specific regions to a broader Canadian audience," says Jim Phillips, Director of Stamp Services. "It is the first in a three-year series bringing fun and entertainment with fascinating believe-it-or-not tales."
