About Stamp

February's Millenium souvenir sheets continue the tribute to the wide range of Canadian people, events and institutions that have helped shape our nation. This third release - the second last in the series - presents such individuals as philosopher Northrop Frye and "Plouffe Family" author Roger Lemelin and celebrates the spirit and vision of Canadian philanthropy. Aboriginal contributions to peace, healing and sport are featured, as well as Canada's proud heritage in the theatre and popular literature.

After drillers struck oil on land where he held mineral rights, lawyer Eric Lafferty Harvie used much of the resulting multimillion-dollar fortune benevolently. He assisted such diverse organizations as Glenbow Foundation, the Calgary Zoo and the Banff Centre for the Arts.
