The June-July issue of Canada Post’s Details magazine reported that the Sept. 21 stamp issue is “Top secret, but worth the wait,” but also said, “Our fall issues will really be something to sing about!”

Details also reported the release dates for two previously announced stamp issues. The Canada Post Community Foundation semipostal stamp will be issued Sept. 23, and commemoratives for the 150th anniversary of the Red River Resistance will be issued Oct. 16.

The online Canadian Geographic Indigenous Peoples Atlas of Canada ( summarized the outcome of the resistance: “During the Red River Resistance of 1869-70, the Metis formed a provisional government and negotiated Manitoba’s entry into Confederation.”
