CP donates funding to heart research

Rail News Home Canadian Pacific 2/25/2021 Rail News: Canadian Pacific
image Canadian Pacific will invest CA$1.5 million into heart disease research in Canada over the next three years, the Heart and Stroke Foundation announced this week. Prior to this latest donation, the Class I — through its community program CP Has Heart — has invested close to CA$5 million in heart and stroke research, foundation officials said in a press release. "CP has demonstrated a clear recognition of the value of supporting research in promoting health, saving lives and enhancing recovery for the millions of people in our country who are living with or at risk for heart disease," said Doug Roth, chief executive officer the foundation. Every nine minutes, someone in Canada dies from heart conditions. Not only have heart disease and stroke persisted during the pandemic, but it's been learned that COVID-19 can damage previously healthy hearts and have serious impacts on the brain, foundation officials said.

CP completes purchase of Detroit River Rail Tunnel

Rail News Home Canadian Pacific 12/23/2020 Rail News: Canadian Pacific
image Canadian Pacific announced yesterday it has completed its acquisition of an 83.5% stake in the Detroit River Rail Tunnel from certain affiliates of OMERS, the benefit pension plan for Ontario municipal employees. CP previously owned a 16.5% stake in the tunnel. The purchase price for the remaining stake is $312 million, subject to closing adjustments, CP officials said in a press release. The Class I announced in October that it would acquire full ownership of the 1.6-mile tunnel, which links Windsor, Ontario and Detroit. The acquisition will reduce the railroad's operating costs related to traffic movements through the tunnel, CP officials have said. OMERS first invested in the Detroit River Tunnel partnership in 2001.
