Canada Post Puts Their Stamp on The 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup

PRINCE GEORGE – Canada Post employee Charity Fraser created a stamp cancellation to commemorate the 2007 RBC Royal Bank Cup and Prince George Spruce Kings Junior A hockey club.

Charity's design was chosen from 10 submitted by postal employees. The cancellation will be featured during this year’s RBC Royal Bank Cup, which will take place in Prince George, British Columbia from May 5 – 13. Visitors to the Fan-Fest booth, at the CN Centre in Prince George, will have the opportunity to send letters and postcards with this special cancellation, throughout the tournament’s festivities.

Canada Post made the decision to become involved with the RBC Royal Bank Cup because of the natural fit for the postal company. Participating teams come from all across Canada, and more often than not, from smaller towns. All of these towns have a post office, and the postal employees in these towns are often involved in local minor hockey.

For Canada Post, sponsorship of the RBC Royal Bank Cup is reflected all across Canada. On a local level, Prince George Canada Post employees are spectators, supporters, volunteers, and billets with the Spruce Kings hockey club. Canada Post sponsorship has generated considerable excitement already, and is expected to grow as the tournament draws closer.
