New stamps to honor Canadian recording artists

Four Canadian recording artists; Paul Anka, Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Anne Murray will have their own stamps beginning June 29th.

Katherine Monk of CanWest News Service writes, "If you're wondering what happened to Neil Young, don't fret, says Canada Post's marketing and public-relations manager, Cindy Daoust. "These are just the first four ... chances are good there will be a sequel."

Monk goes on to report, "Considering other countries such as the United States, and even tiny Russian states such as Ingushia, have been turning celebrity images into lickable gold for decades, Canada Post's foray into the world of pop culture is relatively new."
