About Stamp

People who have driven across our vast country appreciate the diversity of the landscape and the multiplicity of settings. The second instalment in the three-year Scenic Highways series captures four different Canadian panoramic scenes from four of our picturesque provinces and territories: Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Alberta and Yukon.

The 1998 Scenic Highways stamp series offers a dynamic blend of photography and illustration. "Acquiring the panoramic images was the most challenging part of the project", said the stamp designer Lou Cable. "After sending photographers across vast distances at the mercy of Mother Nature, we certainly appreciate the massive size, geological contrast and climatic range of our country. This is never more evident than in this year's stamps." The series will be issued July 28 in Ottawa, Ontario.

Dempster Highway

The Dempster Highway traverses some of the most breathtaking terrain on this continent. It links southern Yukon communities with Inuvik and the Mackenzie Delta in the Northwest Territories. Along the route, motorists can observe unique flora and fauna including the Yukon's territorial flower, the brightly coloured fireweed, as well as Arctic poppies, lichens, cranberries and soapberries. The Dempster cuts through the Peel caribou migration route where grizzlies, foxes, wolverines, snowy owls and eagles join the migrating caribou in early spring and fall. It winds through two mountains ranges, the Ogilvie and the Richardson, and is the only public road in North America to cross the Arctic circle
