The Rocky Mountaineer website reads "The only way to experience the Rockies," but the CP Rail strike has cut down on that experience.

The strike prevents the Rocky Mountaineer from using CP rail tracks between Kamloops and Calgary and rail passengers have to be bused over that portion of the journey.

Daybreak host Chris Walker spoke with Ian Robertson, spokesperson for Rocky Mountaineer, as well as Bryan Pilbeam, the vice president and general manager of National Hospitality Group which runs Hotel Thompson in Kamloops.
