Got these just the other day on standard mail from Ottawa to the US. What does "PC" mean?

Postes Canada...i believe they are cancelled at local distribution locations if they notice that the mail did not get cancelled by the main sorter.....way better than a pen or Sharpie.
Somehow Canada Post has a problem with handling older lower denomination stamps.
Often I have been told by recipients that the stamps were not cancelled.
