Canada Post Issues Spine-Chilling Haunted Canada 2748

On June 14th, 2014, Canada Post chose five Canadian eerie urban legends and turned them into five equally eerie domestic-rate stamps.

The stamps each feature illustrations based on the ghostly tales. Each stamp has a blue Haunted Canada watermark in English and French. In the bottom right, the name of the tale is printed in English and French.

The stories include Ghost Bride from an incident at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in the 1920s. Ghost Train is also set in the 1920s in a tale about the St. Louis Ghost Train. Haunted involves a British soldier from the War of 1812. Count of Frontenac comes from the 17th century set in the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac. Then lastly, Phantom Ships is a story of the haunted seas in The Northumberland Strait.
