CP Holiday Train to make stop in Saskatoon | Saskatoon StarPhoenix
The CP Holiday Train rolls into Saskatoon Monday night with Colin James and Emma-Lee on board.
The train, which raises money for food banks in the communities along its route, is scheduled to arrive at the CP railway overpass on Seventh Avenue North, at the corner of Warburton and Seventh, at 8:35 p.m.
Colin James and Emma-Lee are scheduled to perform from 8:45 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.
The CP Holiday Train program launched in 1999 and has since raised more than $13 million and four million pounds of food for communities along CP’s routes in Canada and the United States.
The 2017 edition of the Holiday Train also concludes CP’s Canada 150 celebrations. It features the Spirit of Tomorrow car, which was part of the Canada 150 Train this past summer.
Other Saskatchewan stops on the route earlier on Monday include Bredenbury, Yorkton, Foam Lake and Wynyard. On Tuesday, the train continues on to Wilkie and Macklin.
