Canada Post has issued a quintuple of commemorative stamps featuring some of Canada’s bestloved country music artists.
The featured artists include Tommy Hunter of Ont., k.d. lang of Alta., Renee Martel of Que., Hank Snow of N.S. and Shania Twain of Ont. As well, an iconic photograph taken by well-known photographer Bill Borgwardt from Sturgeon County (near Edmonton) of Tommy Hunter reading on stage, (his readings were a signature of his hit TV show) was used on the Official First Day Cover, an envelope with the stamp that was cancelled in London, Ontario — Tommy’s home town.
The stamps are available at all Canada Post offices.
