🇨🇦 Canada Post will issue a pair of self-adhesive stamps issued in booklets of 10 on 25 September 2017 as this year's Post Office Community Foundation issue. Each stamp carries a 10c donation for the charity. The issue was designed by Andrew Lewis Design and I think Canada Post rightly says that "they will make you smile and make you wish to donate some joy!". Rating:- ****.
After some of the stamp issues we've seen recently and some of the events around the world we need something to help to make us smile.

🇨🇦🇮🇳 Canada Post and India Post each released 2 stamps and a miniature sheet on 21 September 2017 as a joint issue on the subject of the religious festival of Diwali.
The issue from Canada Post took the form of a booklet of 10 x "P" value self-adhesive stamps plus a miniature sheet which included a Canadian $2.50 stamp and an Indian Rs25 stamp. The issue was designed by Doreen Colonello of Entro Communications. Rating:- ***.
The India Post issue is made up of Rs5 and Rs25 values and a miniature sheet made up of one of each stamp. Rating:- ***.
