Annual Canadian Pacific Holiday Train becomes latest casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic

BY The Canadian Press, Sep 25, 2020 3:46 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The annual Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is the latest casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since 1999 CP has sent the decorated train across the country, from Montreal to Metro Vancouver, stopping in more than 100 cities and towns to collect cash and food donations for food banks in each community.

The program has raised nearly 18-million dollars and collected more than two-million kilograms of food since it began but this year CP says the company will instead donate food directly to stops along its usual route, including 24 in BC.

CP also plans to host a virtual concert to raise funds for food banks but will release more details about that later.
