About Stamp

YUKON QUEST
This 1,610 kilometers cross-border run between Whitehorse, Yukon and Fairbanks, Alaska or vice versa is called the toughest sled dog race in the world. Teams must negotiate icy slopes, windy side-hills, natural moguls and fearsome summits in white-out conditions with fierce winds and temperatures dipping to -60°C. Approximately thirty teams participate in the 10- to 14-day race.

CANADA ON DISPLAY
This stamp was designed by Bradbury Design of Regina, with Catharine Bradbury as design principal and Karin Uusikorpi as associate designer. The challenge of this stamp lay in promoting the diversity and beauty of Canadian tourist attractions in an appealing and effective manner. Aimed at American and international communities, the stamp showcases the talents of the photographer, who set out to capture the essence of this attraction.
