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. The South Saskatchewan forms a large part of one of Canada's most extensive waterways, the Saskatchewan, which winds 1,928 kilometres across the Prairies. Its historical significance for commerce dates back to its discovery by Henry Kelsey of the Hudson Bay Company in 1691. More recently, with the construction of the Gardiner Dam and the creation of Lake Diefenbaker in 1967, the South Saskatchewan has ensured a dependable supply of water for prairie agriculture during unpredictable periods of drought. The South Saskatchewan River (Irrigation) Project has proved an economic godsend to the people of that province.
