Courtesy Onkar from Canada I received this cover which shows the Cape Jourimain lighthouse near the Confederation Bridge linking New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. The lighthouse was discontinued in 1997 after the bridge was built, but continues to remind of the area's maritime heritage. The set of se-tenent stamps was issued on 31.05.2007 by Canada Post.
