Which division of CPR are headquartered at Windsor station?

It was the head office of what was at the time, the largest railroad on Earth. The head office moved to Cowgary in 1996 and they have feverishly downsized themselves, practically out of existence.

You're a lot younger than I thought it you think what's left of that once mighty entity with the biggest railroad on Earth, high class ocean liners and freighters, an international airline, and awesome hotel chain, two trucking companies and a huge mining subsidiary is what you see now.


"What division?"

What a maroon.

In other words, the previous 115 years of CPR history evaporated into thin air when it became wholly Western.

No wonder you guys think you're the center of the universe.

Facts about CP in Toronto
Quote:

With the lease of the Ontario & Quebec Railway in 1884 (which held the leases for the Toronto, Grey & Bruce Railway as well as for the Credit Valley Railway), the CPR gained access to the burgeoning Toronto market in addition to a large territory in southern Ontario
In 1913, the Canadian Pacific Building on the corner of Yonge and King Streets opened in what was then Toronto's financial district. The Edwardian-style 15-storey skyscraper – then the tallest in the British Empire - was a dramatic change from CPR's Chateau-style of architecture
First opened in April 1964, CP's Agincourt Yard near Toronto is one of CP's busiest rail yards
Ever visited Roundhouse Park, the Steam Whistle Brewery or Toronto Railway Museum? These are all located at the John Street Roundhouse which was opened by CPR in 1931. It remained in operation for more than 50 years and was then donated to the City of Toronto
Today, CP employees more than 1,200 employees in the Greater Toronto Area - the hub of its eastern Canadian operations

Quote:

Opened in 1889, Montreal's iconic Windsor Station was the home to CPR's head office until the company relocated to Calgary in 1996. The station was enlarged seamlessly in 1900 and again in 1915. Windsor Station was almost torn down twice – in 1929, and again in 1970, however, The Great Depression cancelled the first plan and the second plan didn't happen after a group of Montrealers mobilized to save the building. In 1990, the Canadian Government designated the building as a heritage railway station

4-1/2 years of overseas service as a Flying Officer and two degrees from Queen's was good for something.

He never went back to Regina, except for family visits. ... We rode the rails just about for free, you know.




OH so Comrade Curious has a FAMILY HISTORY.................

That explains a great deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


I was quite willing to give credit for time in the military...........

Windsor Station is right downtown in Montreal and it was "Track 0" of the CPR. Central Station was just a couple of blocks away and it was "Track Zero" of the CNR. TCA (later called Air Canada) headquarters were across the street from that.

"Division"means something completely different on a railroad. There was a time when being a divisional point made a town really something but that has all faded away.0

Does anyone actually beleive 'Lil potato had the stones to ask Trump not to sign until he gets Canada's demands met, especially after the hot mic incident?

PM asks U.S. not to sign final trade deal with China until Canadians released

Quote:

OTTAWA — Canada has asked the United States not to sign any final trade agreement with China until two Canadians detained in China have been released, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a French-language TV network.
It has been more than a year since Beijing detained Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig in apparent retaliation for Canada's arrest of a top Chinese tech executive, Meng Wanzhou.
She was arrested last December at the request of U.S. authorities who want her on fraud charges. Just days later, Spavor and Kovrig were detained.
The two men were later charged with national security offences in what is widely believed to be an attempt to pressure Canada to release Meng, whose father is the founder of tech giant Huawei.
In an interview with TVA's Salut Bonjour program aired Thursday, Trudeau outlined how Canada has asked the Trump administration to use ongoing trade talks with China as leverage in securing the release of the two Canadians.
"We've said that the United States should not sign a final and complete agreement with China that does not settle the question of Meng Wanzhou and the two Canadians," Trudeau said in translated remarks.
Earlier this month, China's foreign ministry said the Kovrig and Spavor cases had been transferred to prosecutors for review and prosecution.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Canadian Press this week, Trudeau said he regretted that Kovrig and Spavor have been caught up in the diplomatic row, but didn't regret that Canada lived up to its extradition treaty with the United States.
Over the past year, the case has impacted Canada-China relations at virtually every level, said Trudeau.
"This is an issue that we take very seriously, that is a priority and is at the top of Canada's relations with China, whether we're engaging at the diplomatic level or at the trade level or at the leaders' level," he said Wednesday.
Global Affairs Canada said Thursday that Canadian consular officials visited Spavor on Monday and Kovrig on Tuesday, but did not disclose what was said in their meetings, citing privacy laws.
A number of countries and legislative bodies, including the United States, Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom, the European Union, the G7 and NATO have spoken out in support of the detained Canadians, calling for their release and in support of the rule of law.

This reporter should ask Trump for his reaction to PMJT's demands

In that those Canadians are facing the death penalty because Trump wanted us to arrest some Chinese national for him it seems like we are making a pretty reasonable request.

Our "little potato has stones"????????????????????


I dont think so!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


On the other hand - since he is such a colossal arrogant jackass..........................


MAYBE HE DID ask Trump for help????????????????????


There are none so blindly arrogant and entitled as LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Though one has to assume Our idiot Boy DID NOT ask in person!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is far more likely that Our idiot Boy got Freeland to write a nice polite "diplomatic note" on his behalf!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And had it sent through diplomatic channels so it would be harder to RIDICULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

Do you actually think Trudeau demanded Trump to not sign the historic trade agreement until his concerns are met?

It's reports like this that make me wish we'd just tear up any deal with China and start over, but only AFTER doing more research into just how horrible they are.
