Many thanks to my friend Onkar from Canada for this cover. The two stamps with lighthouses are from the Canadian definitive series issued on 27.12.2007. The stamp on the left is Pachena Point Lighthouse and on the right is Cap Des Rosiers Lighthouse. It should be noted here that the original stamp of the Pachena Point Lighthouse issued on 27.12.2012 had a mistake and was withdrawn. The stamp was subsequently re issued with the correct image. The stamp you see on the cover is the correct one.
