Canadian National Railway has signed-on as a sponsor of the Transcona Centennial Square in Winnipeg. The company will contribute $250,000 to erect a clock tower on the square. "The bond between CN and Transcona goes back to the early days of the 20th century," said CN president and CEO Claude Mongeau. "The town grew around the Shops complex that was being built on the open prairie. Over the decades, generations of CN workers made their homes and raised their families here. I am immensely proud that the tradition carries on today, 100 years later, and to be recognizing the ties between us in this highly visible manner."
