About Stamp

Louise McKinney was born in Frankville, Ontario, in 1868. After her marriage she moved to Alberta where she worked hard for the Women's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) and for woman suffrage, believing that once women had the vote, legislation would eliminate many of the evils that WCTU campaigned against. In 1917 she became the first female member of a British Commonwealth legislature. As an MLA she helped strengthen prohibition and improve conditions for immigrants and women. After her defeat in the 1921 election, she continued working for the WCTU, took part in the creation of the United Church of Canada, and along with four others, initiated the "Five Persons Case." The stamp design is the work of Muriel Wood, and is based on portraits of this remarkable women, along with vignette symbolic of her sphere of feminist activity. Thus, the design for the Louise McKinney stamp show the Legislative Buildings of Alberta. The typographic design is by Dennis Goddard.
