Canadian Pacific President and Chief Executive Officer Keith Creel today issued a statement in support of people protecting and serving the public during the coronavirus pandemic.

"To critical health-care workers, frontline service providers, emergency agencies and personnel: Thank you for your ongoing dedication, determination and sacrifice in response to COVID-19," said Creel.

He also thanked "critical service providers" who are serving behind the scenes. 

"From railroaders to truckers to farmers and port workers and everyone in between, the supply chain is still working 24/7 to deliver for North Americans," Creel said.

Regarding CP employees, Creel noted the thousands of individuals working on the front lines to move essential goods.

"They are operating trains, maintaining and inspecting track, and repair locomotives and rail cars, among other critical tasks," he said. 

Creel also challenged other companies across the supply chain to join the Class I in a daily 7 p.m. salute to recognize all health care workers, frontline service providers, emergency agency personnel and transportation providers for their service.
