Canada – British Colombia II

Postcard featuring Science World in Vancouver, which started life as the Expo Centre for Expo 86. Expo 86 was a World's Fair held in Vancouver with the theme "Transportation and Communication: World in Motion – World in Touch", which coincided with Vancouver's centennial. It was the second time that Canada held a World's Fair, the first being Expo 67 in Montreal during the Canadian Centennial. It was quite a popular fair with over 20 million visitors, one of whom was a wide-eyed 7 year-old me who was very over-awed with all the different countries and peoples who were represented there.

A set of two permanent domestic rate stamps commemorating the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.
