About Stamp

The third issue in the Canadian folklore series, issued on September 8, 1992, focuses on Canadian heroes whose feats have taken on legendary proportions. Born in Montreal on October 25, 1802, Jos Montferrand became a voyageur, lumberjack and a strong man of legendary proportion. His father taught him foot fighting and boxing and at 6'4", he was powerful teenager. At 21 he went to work as a voyageur for the Hudson's Bay Company. Four years later he became a logger and raftsman on the Ottawa River. Stories of his prowess and strength spread far and wide. It is said that he left his boot prints on tavern ceilings by performing incredible somersaults. Fact or fiction, his feats have been sung, written and told by many Canadians, including Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
