Description

The Post Office Department of Canada issued this 5 cents Highway Safety Stamp as a contribution to the cause of safety on the nation's roads. Coinciding with the day of issue, 2nd May 1966, delegates to the Canadian Highway Safety Council met in Calgary, Alberta, for the Council's 12th Annual Conference, devoting their talents to a cause which should be everyone's concern. Founded in 1955, it merged with the National Safety League of Canada and the Canadian Industrial Safety Association to form the Canada Safety Council in 1968. Replacing the familiar visible gum is an improved adhesive, tasteless, and virtually invisible to the casual observer. It has proved to have superior adhesive qualities during the several years it has been used in North America on various labels and stickers. Manufactured under the trade name of "DAVAC", the new adhesive does not react to the humidity factor in the air as do other glues.

This stamp also have a hidden date on it.
