CP Holiday Train Rolling Through Region

A mobile event supporting food banks "rolls" through the region later today.

Canadian Pacific's 20th annual Holiday Train stops in Chapleau, Dubreuilville, and White River Saturday, and CP spokesperson Salem Woodrow emphasizes that the most important part of the initiative is its local focus.

Woodrow notes the Holiday Train's raised more than $14.5-million and 4.3-million pounds of food since it hit the tracks in 1999.

She also reminds this year's attendees will be treated to musical performances by Canadian country superstar Terri Clark, as well as country singer Kelly Prescott, and Winnipeg singer-songwriter Sierra Noble.

The CP Holiday Train's scheduled to arrive at Chapleau's Train Station at 3:15 Saturday afternoon, then in Dubreuilville at 6:20, and finally White River at 9:15.
