Hey, hey horror fans!
Canada Post is releasing new Haunted Canada stamps for domestic mail on Friday the 13th this June.
From Canada Post's online description: Swap ghost stories with your friends across Canada! Include these spine-tingling stamps on all your domestic mail. A unique foil treatment gives each stamp special ghostly effects.

- Alberta’s Ghost Bride: The ghost of a 1920s bride who died in the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel is said to inhabit the hotel to this day.
- Saskatchewan’s St. Louis Ghost Train: Believers say a ghostly glowing light is a CNR conductor who lost his head to a passing train in the 1920s.
- Ontario’s Fort George: Phantom footsteps and ghosts make this one of the most haunted places in Canada.
- Quebec’s Château Frontenac: The hotel’s namesake is said to wander hotel halls in his 17th century garb.
