Description

During the summer of 1927, the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation was fittingly carried out. A committee appointed by the government in connection with the celebrations suggested a special issue of postage stamps to commemorate the occasion. The subjects of these commemorative stamps centred around the statesmen and the events they commemorated. The stamps were bilingual with the words "Postes" and "Post."

Portrait of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, born in 1841, in the village of St. Lin, Quebec. He entered the federal Parliament in 1874, and in 1877 became a member of the Dominion cabinet and prime minister in 1896. In 1897 Queen Victoria knighted him while he was attending the ceremonies in connection with the Diamond Jubilee of her accession to the throne. He died during the winter of 1919, and was buried in Notre Dame Cemetery, Ottawa.
