On Friday the 13th, with a full moon rising, Canada Post issued the the first in a three year series of Haunted Canada stamps. this first photo is from the Canada Post website (because I was having trouble getting a perfectly straight picture of my own stamps)
but if you look closely on the real stamps, you can see a ghostly imprint of
Haunted Canada Hanté and a holographic foil
the first five stamps feature these images:
- Ontario’s Fort George: Phantom footsteps and ghosts make this one of the most haunted places in Canada.
- Alberta’s Ghost Bride: The ghost of a 1920s bride who died in the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is said to inhabit the hotel to this day.
- Quebec’s Château Frontenac: The hotel’s namesake is said to wander hotel halls in his 17th century garb.
- Saskatchewan’s St. Louis Ghost Train: Believers say a ghostly glowing light is a CNR conductor who lost his head to a passing train in the 1920s.
- PEI’s Northumberland Strait: A burning ship is often spotted between NB and PEI. As would-be rescuers approach, the ship disappears into the mist.
