Designed as a companion piece to Canadian Pacific I, this film was shot near the artist's studio, from a window two storeys higher on the fourth floor of a next-door building, between December, 1974, and February, 1975. It can be projected alone or in double-screen format with Canadian Pacific I.

Vancouver harbour with its railyards, mountains and passing ships is a vista in fluid transformation as three winter months are reviewed and condensed to ten minutes. "What interested me about these shots were the horizontals: the train tracks, the water, the mountains and the sky and the way in which these four elements would shift, change and fuse."
   - David Rimmer

"Canadian Pacific II is designed as a companion piece to Canadian Pacific I. Shot from a window two storeys higher and in the building adjacent to the artists's studio of the previous year, one enters into a dream state... an involvement with a vocabulary of seeing and feeling by subtle transitions of the passage of time."
   - Leonard Horowitz, Soho Weekly News.
