    Canadian Pacific Railway names Kamloops' interchange in honour of Chinese rail worker - PR Newswire
    Canadian Pacific Railway continues to honour the significant role of Chinese railway labourers during railway construction more than 120 years ago. In a ceremony highlighted by a Lion Dance that symbolizes good luck and good blessings, Canadian Pacific Railway named a railway interchange in Kamloops in honour of Cheng Ging Butt, a railway labourer who represented the dedication of those who came forward to work on the CPR transcontinental line in the B.C. interior.

    Thousands of Chinese railway workers helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway from the West Coast to Eagle Pass in the Monashee Mountains of Western Canada and many perished.
