Thanks to Victor (via Jean and George) for this Norwegian Souvenir sheet that arrived from Lithuania via Germany and Toronto--well-travelled stamps that arrived in a cover with a stamp depicting a famous Canadian train (thanks Jean!):

The efforts of everyone involved in getting this to its destination are much appreciated. Victor sent a "test cover" to see if service to Canada would work and I posted it earlier in this thread.

You’re very welcome Derrick. Note that the stamp on the cover is from the souvenir sheet, not as common as the booklet stamp. :)

Glad it reached you safely from the small town of Merritt, which was badly flooded last fall.

Sorry about the air mail definitive — I was in a rush — but at least I don’t think I have sent it to you before.

Glad you enjoyed the Indigenous people-themed cover, George.

The two stamps of Indigenous leaders on the cover are different issues — Canada also issued these three stamps in small booklets — from those on the mini sheet, incidentally.

It reached you safely! Good to hear.

And thanks, too, George!

Interesting to see stamps bring three like-minded people together in different countries divided by the current conflict in Europe. Stamp collecting has the power to unite, not divide.

And how do you say football in Belarus, I wonder?
