Calgary is one of only three stops across North American where Canadian Pacific has added additional star power to shine a spotlight on the railway's mission of raising food, money and awareness in the fight against hunger.

This is the 15th anniversary of the Holiday Train. The 2013 program, which runs from November 25 until December 19, features two brightly decorated trains travelling across Canada and the United States holding fundraisers in 150 communities. Since 1999, the Holiday Train has raised about $7.4 million and about 3 million pounds of food.

For additional information on the CP Holiday Train, schedules, photos, a route map and downloadable pictures of the two trains visit: www.cpr.ca.

**Update**

Canadian Pacific extends its deepest condolences to Matt Dusk over the sudden loss of his father this week.

As Matt spends time with his family in the coming days he will not perform at this Saturday's Calgary event
and plans to join the Holiday Train after the Calgary event.
