CP Holiday Train

The CP Holiday Train is on schedule for a Sudbury stop Nov. 29th.

The train is expected in at the VIA train station on Elgin Street at 8:50 p.m.

The CP Holiday Train is North America's longest rolling food bank fundraiser. Since it started rolling in 1999, the program has raised close to $9.5 million and 3.3 million pounds of food.

Over the three weeks of the program, musicians will play more than 150 concerts from a boxcar that has been turned into a travelling stage. The concerts are free, but donations for the Sudbury Food Bank are encouraged — either a non-perishable food item or a cash donation. All contributions will stay in your community.

This year, Sudburians will be entertained by Roxanne Potvin and Odds.

Potvin is a Juno award nominated Montreal-based singer/songwriter who has a blues, soul and R&B background, which has seen her work with luminaries such as Colin Linden, John Hiatt and Bruce Cockburn and tour with Sue Foley and Deborah Coleman. 

Canadian power pop rock band Odds achieved wide commercial success in the 1990s. Most recently, Odds got together and performed old and new songs on the Barenaked Ladies' Ships & Dip cruise. A new CD, “Cheerleder”, was released in 2008. The first single, "My Happy Place," was used during the end credits for the Canadian TV show "Corner Gas."

Non-perishable food or donations by cash, cheque, Visa or Mastercard will be accepted by Sudbury Food Bank Volunteers. Thank-you for your support!
