Canadian Pacific Railway is showing support for front-line heath-care workers and other essential service providers.
CP trains are sounding a long whistle at 7 a.m. local time as a salute to those who continue to serve their communities.
“Given the challenges across the continent, and around the world, we know our work as railroaders is more important now than ever before,” the Canadian Pacific Railway website states.
Trains continue to operate throughout North America and the U.S.-Canada border remains open for trade.
“Governments on both sides of the border have made it clear that trade must continue, and we take pride in our role in continuing to provide safe and efficient rail service.”
