Windy postal stamp unveiled at CanWEA event

Anyone looking for evidence of what the Manitoba energy ministry's Jim Crone calls the "staggeringly enthusiastic" support for wind in the province need look no further than the home of its first and only wind farm. Residents of St Leon, population 120, were front and centre during a tour of the project organised for delegates to this year's Canadian wind conference, all sporting yellow and black jackets pronouncing the village the "Wind Capital of Manitoba." The declaration has the full backing of Canada Post, which manages the country's postal system. During lunch at the community hall, it unveiled a cancellation stamp featuring the village's new slogan and a drawing of three wind turbines. It will appear on all mail leaving the local post office. Canada Post also plans to release a stamp in 2008 featuring the St Leon project.
