Just outside Regina on May 16, while on tour, country music star Dean Brody unveiled a stamp that captures the Trans-Canada Highway, the 8,000-km. ribbon of adventures, dreams and memories – and a key economic artery for Canadian business.

Brody, winner of multiple Juno Awards and over a dozen Canadian Country Music Awards, took a few hours away from his arena tour (which is largely following the Trans-Canada) to unveil the stamp at the home of Brandt Group of Companies, located alongside the iconic highway.

The Trans-Canada Highway stamp is the fifth of 10 stamps being issued by Canada Post to celebrate Canada 150. The stamps mark unforgettable moments in Canada since its centennial in 1967.

Brody has travelled thousands of kilometres on the Trans-Canada Highway, chasing his dream and touring – as he is now, from Ontario to BC. The highway, and the people and places he’s encountered along it, have inspired some of his music and songwriting.
