The second in the series of Canadian Heritage Rivers stamps was issued on April 22, illustrating five of this country's famous waterways of industry and commerce. Similar to last year's format, the stamps were issued in a Stamp Pack of 10. Canada is famous worldwide for its natural resource industries, fisheries, logging, agriculture, hydro-electric power, recreation and tourism. As the link between Montreal and the interior for early fur-trading voyageurs, the Ottawa River has been a highway for Canadian commerce for over 300 years. It was also famous for its log-driving runs, supplying timber for colonists to build the new nation. Its strategic location, joining Ontario and Quebec, led to the decision to designate a town on its bank as the capital of the new Dominion. White-water rafting has replaced timber rafting on the river, and is an important contribution to Ottawa's status as a world-class tourism destination.
