$200,000 to the Canadian Red Cross to help victims of the devastating
June 2013 floods in southern

Calgary based railroad will match all employee donations to this cause dollar-for-dollar.
"CP is proud to support the Red Cross in its efforts to bring relief to all who have been upended by this natural disaster," noted
