Via Rail conducts Invictus Games initiative
Via Rail Canada has conducted a sponsorship initiative tied to the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto.

"Via Rail is always proud to support the Canadian military and their families," said Yves Desjardins-Siciliano, president and CEO of Via. "The Invictus Games Toronto 2017 presents us with a unique opportunity to recognize both their commitment to country and their personal sacrifice. Moreover, it allows us to celebrate their resilience and strength in overcoming adversity. It is this courage that stands on guard for our country, our rights and freedoms."
