There’s only one major event on the docket this week—but it’s a big one.
Today is the final day of the 89th Convention of The Royal Philatelic Society of Canada (RPSC) in Boucherville, Que. The show is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Hôtel Mortagne on 1228 Nobel St. in Boucherville. Admission and parking are free.
The show boasts about 30 of Canada’s top philatelic dealers—and one from the U.K., London’s Bill Barrell—presiding over more than 45 tables of material. Canadian Stamp News is selling magazines as well as philatelic supplies at table six.
