Following last year's highly popular souvenir sheet featuring historic Canadian cars, in 1994, Canada Post Corporation presents Public Service Vehicles. These specialty streetcars, wagons, trucks and buses provided public transportation, and assisted in the maintenance of roads and in the provision of essential services. Arthur Sicard of Montreal sold his first snowblower to Outremont in 1927. His innovative design allowed a single operator to clear and throw snow over 30 metres or directly into a dumptruck, whether it was hard, soft or packed down. The self-propelled Sicard snowblower featured four basic pars: a Four Wheel Drive truck chassis and motor, a snow collection unit; a blower unit with two adjustable chutes; and a separate snowblower motor.
