Shania Twain has received an incredible honor in her home country of Canada. Twain’s name has been announced as one of the faces that will be appearing on Canada Post’s 2014 stamp collection according to Taste of Country on Nov. 2, 2013.
Twain will be a part of Canada’s country legends series that also includes Hank Snow, Tommy Hunter, Renée Martel and k.d. lang. Twain has earned her place by becoming one of country music’s stand out artists who has received multiple awards throughout her extremely successful career.
Deepak Chopra, President and CEO of Canada Post said “Collectively we continue to capture moments that will long live through our stamp collection and we encourage everyone to take note of these stories as they truly mark who we are as Canadians.”
The new program also celebrates female athletes, the National Film Board of Canada’s 75th anniversary, the Royal Ontario Museum’s 100th anniversary, the return of the CFL to Ottawa and a collection including the Haunted Canada series.
The Honorable Lisa Raitt who is the Minister of Transport and responsible for the Canada Post said “These stamp collections visually narrate some of our country’s defining moments – from our darkest days to those of immense pride, the 2014 program offers us some incredible stories to remember.”
