Whitehorse to Fort Selkirk, June 9, 2001 - 200 of these envelopes were carried on this run. To save time for postal employees, most of the covers for each community were pre-cancelled, with "about 50 ceremonial envelopes" left for stamping in each community, according to the instruction sheet for postal employees. The original cost of each envelope was $7.50 including GST (tax).
