 Canada Post printed  a sheet of stamps  showing the severed head of a John A. Macdonald statue that was recently toppled in Montreal. The sheet of stamps was printed through the postal service’s Picture Postage program, which allows people to order stamps with personalized photos for a fee.  The personalized stamp program is run through Lowe Martin in Ottawa .

The person who placed the first order tried to place a second  order for more stamps  featuring the statue head — only to receive an email from Canada Post denying the request, saying the picture was “not appropriate for use” through the program. The man who ordered the stamps, said he made the order as a protest against colonialism. Canada Post said the stamp sheet “shouldn’t have been processed” and apologized.  Web to print still has a few bugs to work out.
