Editor's note from Ken Pickford:

This aircraft is a Curtiss C-46 at Edmonton Municipal Airport (YXD), closed for redevelopment in 2013. CPA acquired 8 used C-46's in 1955.

They were used on CP's scheduled passenger and cargo routes from Edmonton to northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories and to transport supplies during construction of the DEW Line radar warning sites in the Arctic in the mid-1950's.

CPA sold the northern routes to Pacific Western Airlines in 1959, including at least a couple of the C-46's.
