Canada Post recalls Dinosaur Provincial Park stamp over geography error

July 08, 2015 - 7:48 PM

CALGARY - Officials at Canada Post have issued a recall on a stamp featuring Alberta's Dinosaur Provincial Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, because of a geography error.

The image used on the stamp is a set of hoodoos, a rock formation that can be found in the provincial park north of Brooks, Alta.

The problem is that the actual hoodoos depicted on the stamp are located east of Drumheller, a community about an hour and a half northwest of Brooks.

Canada Post has apologized for the error and is recalling the stamps from all post offices so they can be destroyed.

A new stamp, with a correct picture, will be released at a later date.
