Royal 2013 Royale, the National show of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada,  was held at the University of Manitoba on June 21 - 23, 2013. The theme of the show was the 200th Anniversary of Selkirk Settlers which is now the site of Winnipeg. It featured 270 frames and 24 dealer tables. The show included the annual meetings of the Scandinavian Collectors Club as well as the Canadian Aerophilatelic Society. Our club received special greetings from the current Lord Selkirk of Douglas in the UK as well Kircubright Philatelic Society in Scotland which is in the town where Lord Selkirk was from. A limited number of covers that were signed by Lord Selkirk of Douglas were available. Speakers at the show opening included greetings a direct descendant of Chief Peguis who helped the settlers survive through the first winter.
The seventy-second annual convention and exhibition of the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada was opened, appropriately, by Manitoba’s Lieutenant Governor, The Honourable Peter M. Liba. The Lieutenant Governor, Patron of the Winnipeg Philatelic Society, in his remarks also commented on the value of philately as a hobby and on the fact that the year 2000 was the centennial of the Society. The ceremony took place on the mezzanine floor of the Marlborough Hotel; the eighth floor ballroom was the location of the main show for the RPSC convention and show. A major part of the morning ceremonies was the unveiling of Canada Post’s “Rural Mailboxes” designs. These four colourful stamps were shown to us as they were taken from a large mailbox by the Honourable André Ouellet, chairman of the Board, Canada Post. The stamps were first on sale later that morning at the Canada Post kiosk.
Also speaking at the opening were: · Beverly Barr, president of the Winnipeg Philatelic Society. Ms Barr was presented with a souvenir frame of the Mailbox stamps by Mr. Oulette, in recognition of the work done by members of the WPS in hosting the show. · Roger P. Quimby, President of the Scandinavian Collectors Club. The SCC was co-host for the show and held its annual meeting here for the first time outside of the USA. · Dr. Peter McCann, president of the American Philatelic Society. At the end of the ceremonies the Lt. Governor and the President of Canada Post were the first to have their pictures taken at the "Picture Postage" booth in the exhibition room. The ceremonies were chaired by Rick Penko, who headed the committee that made the show happen.
