CP Canada 150 train connects Canada, draws thousands to celebrate CP’s history and Canada’s sesquicentennial

The CP Canada 150 train has completed its cross-country tour, connecting thousands of Canadians with the history of Canada and Canadian Pacific, while delivering an epic community block party at each of the 13 whistle stops.

The August 20 show in Ottawa marked the final event of the train tour, a journey that brought thousands of Canadians together to enjoy a free concert to celebrate the country's 150th anniversary of confederation and the role the railway played in connecting Canada more than 130 years ago.
