Canada Post paying tribute to emergency responders

Canada Post plans to pay tribute to emergency responders with five stamp unveilings.

Over five consecutive days starting today, Canada Post will unveil a stamp issue to pay tribute to five groups of Canada's emergency responders.

One stamp will be unveiled each day at a separate event across the country to honor a different kind of emergency responder.

The stamps express the respect and gratitude of Canadians to emergency responders, professional and volunteer.

With their skills, with their service and by their sacrifices, they find and rescue the lost; treat and save the seriously ill and injured; and protect us, our homes, businesses, and communities.

The first stamp will be unveiled in Fredericton today
