πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ Canada Post’s latest new issues are:- 

14 October 2021 - Commemoration of the actor, the late Christopher Plummer (1929-2021) who is most famous I suspect for his role of von Trapp in the movie of the musical Sound of Music. The single self-adhesive stamp which is issued in booklets of 10 also depicts Plummer in the roles of King Lear, Rudyard Kipling in the film The Man Who Would Be King and as John Barrymore in the movie Barrymore. The stamp was designed by Stephen Slipp and Spooky Pooka and is accompanied by a miniature sheet containing 6 of the stamps. Rating:- ****.
