Canada 1999 - 2002

This is my second album of stamps of Canada. In this album are my Canadian stamps from the year 1999 onwards. Ofcourse there are huge gaps that remain to be filled. And since there are so many gaps I am not sure of having left space enough for all the missing stamps. It is more or less OK and there is always scope for a complete rearrangement. But I will start doing that after I get hold of most of the missing stamps.
