THE CPR: A CENTURY OF CORPORATE WELFARE

In this counter-company history the author explains how the CPR has done it. He shows how the CPR's growth has come only as a result of continued favourable treatment from Ottawa, how it has managed to avoid government take-over while receiving enormous public subsidies, how it has been able to earn large profits, and how it has turned itself into a highly-diversified conglomerate involved in real estate, pulp and paper, mining, and oil as well as every form of transportation.
