In 2010 Vancouver will be hosting the Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games. On January 12th, 2009 Canada Post began issuing a series of stamps commemorating the event. The series features various Olympic and Paralympic disciplines and also the choice of mascots for the event.
Canada Post has commemorated this year’s summit of «La Francophonie» being held in Quebec City with a special stamp issued on October 15th. It is richly coloured and features a picture of Quebec City with the name of each of the participating members of the summit listed across the top. With the issuing of this stamp we are reminded of Canada’s role in founding the society in 1970.
