A stamp for the Korean ceasefire

Guy Black of the Korean War Veterans Association of Canada writes asking for letters of support for a campaign for a Canadian postage stamp to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the Korean cease fire in 2013. More than a hundred letters already accumulated he says.

Seems like a good and appropriate subject for a stamp, for all the reasons on the KVAC site.

But I wonder about having our postage stamps determined by popularity contests judging who can get the most letters of support sent to Canada Post. Surely with a hundred letters from prominent Canadians, CP has has the idea planted. It should not need an internet poll to sort out what gets on a stamp.
