Stamp Talks – May 9, 2022  

Politics and Postal Circulars: Lester Pearson’s Role in the 1948 Evolution of Postal Relations Between Canada and the State of Israel

Speaker – Ed Kroft

Ed will be discussing how Canadian foreign policy and politics shaped and significantly influenced the development of postal relations between the two countries. He will show previously censored material obtained from the Canadian Archives which, among other things, demonstrates how Canada would not acknowledge the existence of the State of Israel in 1948 postal circulars to suit Great Britain’s foreign policy initiatives. Three of Canada’s prime ministers (MacKenzie King, Pearson, and St. Laurent) played roles in the development of Canada’s 1948 postal policies towards Israel.
