Season Update from Charles Campbell on Jan. 28th (see post):
“The team finished the season with a win over the Slovakian MPs. A hard fought, fast paced, and action packed 10-4 victory. For the most part we shut down the classic European style breakaway passing game. With the win we finished the regular season with an 13-5 record. The playoffs are set to start in a few days.
Bdr Eric Landry and Bdr Wayne Belair will display their talent next week during the KHL All Star game, complete with a skills competition.”

Remembrance Day – Molson Remembers

Every year on November 11, Canadians pause in a silent moment of remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country for the cause of freedom and the pursuit of peace.

More than 1,500,000 Canadians have served our country in this way, and more than 100,000 have died. They gave their lives and their futures so that we may live in peace. As we stop to reflect, let us remember the men and women who have answered the call to duty to serve.

Molson commits to continue to honour and remember the courage, selflessness and sacrifices made by those men and women who served our country for the freedom and the pursuit of peace in future years. 

Here’s how we will be remembering our veterans on November 11th :

·         Lowering the Canadian flag to half mast at the Toronto Brewery

·         Observing a minute of silence at 11 a.m.

·         Making an announcement over the Emergency Response System

·         Shutting down equipment, where operationally feasible

Canadian Armed Forces Halifax Team up with Molson

Team Canadian Forces faced off with Team Molson for a ball hockey game to break in the new hockey surface located on base in Shearwater, Nova Scotia.  The day was warm, maybe too warm for Team Molson as we lost 10 – 5.  I think a re match is called for, what do you think?

Molson and Employees Continue to Support Canadian Troops Around the World

Molson and our employees are continuing to provide support to our Canadian troops around the world at this festive time of year. Molson has sent a supply of Molson Canadian for our troops to enjoy over the holiday season.

Molson is also continuing to support “Operation Santa Claus” by providing a duffle bag to each member of the 3000 Canadian Troops stationed around the world.

In communities across Canada employees provide support to various efforts in support of our troops. One example is a program that Ryan St. Peter initiated in Edmonton to support the Military Family Resource Centre at the Edmonton Garrison. Ryan raised $5000 and Molson matched his donation for a resultant achievement of $10000 towards the centre.

In conjunction with the Edmonton Oilers, Molson donated over 100 tikcets for the Oilers game on November 24th that assisted in sending over 5000 people, members of the troops and their families to enjoy the Oilers game.

Most recently Molson announced seed funding and support for the construction of a multi-purpose recreation facility at Canadian Forces Base Halifax (Shearwater). The project will provide a facility for ice hockey, ball hockey and a skating park for the Canadian military forces.

Molson and our employees are proud to continue to support our troops at home and abroad, consistent with the heritage and history of Molson that has seen generation after generation provide this ongoing support.

Supplying support to Canadian troops has been a tradition at Molson as far back as the late 1700s when John Molson served his country as a politician in peacetime – and as a soldier during war. Throughout the War of 1812-14, Mr. Molson – the force behind the establishment of the country’s first commercial steamboat enterprise – enlisted in the force along with two of his sons and dedicated his steamships to the service of the Crown. The Swiftsure was the first steamship to be used in war.

Molson…proud to play our part.
