20th Annual event declared huge success

Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The 20th annual CP Holiday train was another huge success.

An estimated crowd of 300 people gathered to greet the train as it pulled up to it's vantage point near the old 8th Street overpass adjacent to Assiniboine Avenue Tuesday night.

Launched in 1999, it has since raised more than C$14.5 million and gathered 4.3 million pounds of food for communities along CP's routes in Canada and the United States.

The final weigh in of donations is expected to be released today.
