About Stamp

A fearsome fiction is one thing – but when the eerie story is based on accounts of real people who swear they’ve felt, heard or even seen a ghost – the supernatural is sensational! We’re unleashing this spine-tingling series of five tales told across this land, with an Official First Day Cover cancelled in Gorrie, Ontario.

In the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, the hotel’s most famous otherworldly resident is French Governor Louis de Buade, Count of Frontenac. The Count fostered the growth of New France from 1672 to 1698, and his coat of arms marks the entrance to the Château, part of which lies on the site of his former home. Some have spotted him, dressed in 17th century garb, wandering the halls or floating through the ballroom.
