CP Holiday Train returning to region
The 21st annual Holiday Train, a charity-supporting, entertaining holiday extravaganza will feature international recording star Terri Clark, from nearby Medicine Hat.
The three-time JUNO Award winner holds the honour of being the only Canadian female member of the legendary Grand Ole Opry. She has received 19 CCMA Awards and is the newest member of the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.
“The CP Holiday Train is a program that our 13,000-strong CP family has immense pride in bringing to communities every year. Access to nutritious food is a basic necessity, and food bank usage is on the rise across North America. The CP Holiday Train program is our way to help in the fight against hunger by growing awareness of this issue and providing a fun and engaging way for the public to show their support,” said Keith Creel, CP’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Holiday Train has now raised more than $15.8 million and collected 4.5 million pounds of food since its inaugural journey back in 1999.
The Holiday Train will make stops in Sparwood, Fernie, Jaffray, Cranbrook, Creston, Radium Hot Springs and Golden, as well as stops in the Central Kootenay.
