Annual Dinner – Given to Western Pioneers by Canadian Pacific Railway
Guy Weadick, High River, Alta.
‘About the only remaining link between the old open range days of the Canadian northwest with those who actively participated in the livestock industry of that era, is the annual gathering at Calgary, each July, of those who attend the banquet tendered by the Canadian Pacific Railway to those pioneer cattlemen.
This annual roundup has for many years been a source of keen enjoyment and interest to the ever-diminishing number of those who are eligible to attend under the conditions specified when the dinner was first inaugurated.’
