Ottawa Economic Conference - Save $4 on this Mint 1932 Airmail

In the summer of 1932 a group of British Commonwealth delegates met in Ottawa to discuss the Great Depression and to establish trade and economic policies. To commemorate this conference, and to mark a special airmail flight for mail sent by conference attendees, the 1932 Allegory of Flight design was overprinted in blue with a new denomination of 6 cents and the commemorative inscription "Ottawa Conference 1932”. An airmail service was inaugurated between Ottawa and Strait of Belle Isle at the mouth of the St. Lawrence, the last port for vessels bound for Europe, making it possible to get mail onto fast trans-Atlantic steamers that had left Quebec the previous day. It wouldn't be until 1939 when Canada began airmail flights across the Atlantic! (Canada #C4)
