Description

In response to a widespread feeling that a series of stamps depicting some of the principal Canadian statesmen should be brought out, the Department prepared, between February and July, 1926, 3 special postage stamps. The designs featured portraits of The Honourable Thomas D'Arcy McGee, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir John A. Macdonald, Robert Baldwin, and Sir Louis Lafontaine. They were not issued, however, until the following year when the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation occurred. The stamps were released on June 29, 1927, the same date as the Confederation series.

Portrait of Hon. Thomas D'Arcy McGee, born in Ireland in 1825, he emigrated early in life to the United States where he became a journalist. Later, he went to London as parliamentary correspondent. Although he had been intensely anti-British, he changed his opinions and advocated a staunch adherence to British rule. He came to Canada in 1857 and in 1858 entered Parliament where he supported the union of the British provinces in North America. In 1862, he became a cabinet minister, and lived to see Confederation accomplished. He was assassinated on April 6, 1868, on his return home from a session of the House of Commons in Ottawa.
