Canadian icon Benjamin Franklin to be celebrated on new Canadian stamp

What, you didn't know that founding father Ben Franklin was a Canadian icon?

Read it and be proud.

Seems that well over a hundred years before Canada became Canada, Mr. Franklin was in charge of organizing mail service in the British colonies of North America.

Apparently that makes him a Canadian icon.

On a related note, Canada has had the prime ministerial jet repainted in the red white and blue.

I get the red and white. Those are the colours of the Canadian flag.

What's the blue signify?

Perhaps a latent case of wannabe-ism on the part of those Harperites who have always pined to be the 51st state?
