Canada Post had released "The Millennium Collection" a set of 68 stamps embedded in a specially made book. These stamps were not issued separately and also were not a part of that years programme. Subsequently citing "popular demand", they released these stamps as a series of 17 Millennium souvenir sheets, each depicting four different stamps, starting December 17, 1999 through to March 17, 2000.
On with the show! was the first of the series highlighting pivotal Canadian subjects in the world of entertainment and the arts including IMAX motion- picture technology, the Calgary Stampede, singer Felix Leclerc and the National Film Board.
