THUNDER BAY – Three-time Juno Award-winning singer Terri Clark will headline a trio of acts stopping at multiple Northwestern Ontario communities aboard the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train.
Sierra Noble and Kelly Prescott will also be along for a ride for the annual visit, which lands the travelling road show in Thunder Bay at the CP station on Syndicate Avenue on Dec. 2 at 8:30 p.m.
The train will also stop in White River, Mobert, Heron Bay, Marathon, Schreiber, Ignace, Dryden, Vermilion Bay, Kenora and Ingolf on its way westward.
:On behalf of the 13,000-strong family here at CP, it is my great pleasure to kick-off the 20th tour of the CP Holiday Train," said Keith Creel, CP's president and CEO, in a release issued on Wednesday.
"It is a privilege for CP to be able to run a program like this and connect with so many communities across our network. I want to personally thank each individual who has made a donation over the past 20 years – your collective efforts have made the Holiday Train a huge success for two decades."
Members of the audience along the way are being asked to donate heart-healthy food.
"We are delighted to see the CP Holiday Train travelling across the country again supporting food banks for the twentieth year in a row," said Chris Hatch, Food Banks Canada's CEO.
"The role that CP plays goes beyond collecting food and raising funds, as they also help Food Banks Canada transport food across the country through our National Food Sharing System. For that we are truly grateful."
