Eastend is a small town in the south-west corner of Saskatchewan. In 1991 a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil was found near town. It was named Scotty and became the centerpiece of a natural history museum. It took nearly 20 years to recover 65% of Scotty's bones.

Canada's Group of Seven
The Group of Seven were a prominent group of Canadian artists best known for their paintings of Canadian landscapes in the 1920's and 30's. It was a time when the imagery of the Canadian wilderness was considered to wild to be captured by art. This sheet commemorates their first exhibition in May of 1920 which started the first Canadian national art movement.

Davis Station, Australian Antarctic Territory
Canada Post has suspended sending mail to something like 163 of 218 countries and I don't even get advertisements in the mail any more. But I still received this from the Antarctic.
