Whether you’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at a pub or getting together with friends for a night in, be sure to plan ahead for a safe ride home.
Download the free TAXIGUY DIALER app on your phone beforehand so you can connect to a local cab company with just one click at the end of the night.
Here’s to responsible choices and having a whale of a time this weekend!

Greetings to you and yours on this early Sunday morning (ET) of what is known in three provinces in Canada as “Family Day Weekend”. Tomorrow is a day granted as a statuatory holiday to spend time with family, recharge batteries, take in the art gallery, museum, local fascination that you’ve never seen before. Since I’m in Detroit at a hockey tournament with my son’s Midget Junior team I note that it is also “President’s Day” tomorrow, being the third Monday of February and marking a holiday in the US. Like in Canada it is perhaps one of those days to just be home to spend time with family and friends and enjoy the day in what ever special way you might have in mind for you and the family. Some may travel, some may catch up, some may get their place straightened out in aniticipation of spring around the corner. Regardless it is a reminder for us (for me anyway) that all we do is really about family. So a toast to you and yours on this family day weekend in Ontario Canada. May you enjoy being with those around you or just connecting with those in your family that may be distant but just a phone call or click away. Cheers…and how will you be spending your family day weekend ? @MolsonFerg

…for many years along the path where we walk our dog behind Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, a small tree was decorated with festive bobbles and ornaments. Then suddenly one year there was a note near the tree advising that it would be the final year that the tree would be decorated. We could only imagine that the folks were moving on, or that a kindred senior soul was just finding it too difficult to navigate the woods and present this annual wonder to the community. A year passed and then my wife decided that we had to continue on this local tradition. So…our neighbours with us at dusk a couple of weeks back, decorated this small lonely tree along the path behind Sunnybrook. We hope that it will bring joy, reflection, smiles, hope and a sense of community to passers by. May this season bring much joy and a new year that is full of peace and harmony. Perhaps a lonely tree in the woods will help people think of how each of us can work to make this world a better place. Cheers to the Season. The very best to you and your community, your family, friends and a stranger passing by who might just gain a smile. @MolsonFerg

As the last day of “fall” reaches it’s end here in Toronto I wanted to extend the very best of the season to our readers, friends, partners and beer drinkers who follow the Molson Coors Community Blog. At this festive time of year we have a chance to reflect on the year past and look forward to renewed challenges of the new year. It’s time to pass along a little of the holiday spirit…like this small tree that my wife and I and neighbours decorate along one of the dog walking paths to put a smile on the face of passers by… (hey Torontonians…if you can tell me where it is I will even provide some samples for a holiday party to the first “six” to shout it out…cheers).
Thanks to all who partner with us in the community, to our business partners that help us bring the best in sport and entertainment to our beer drinkers and to our customers who help purvey our beers to those who thirst for our quality brews. A toast to our employees who ensure that quality, one case at a time…for over 225 years here in Canada ! To our fleet drivers that get the product to market. And… to our beer drinkers who help to guide us in our brewing and response to them to help make sure that Molson Coors delights our drinkers throughout the calendar year. Please be sure to make responsible choices this holiday season and all the best for 2012. Cheers! @MolsonFerg

For a few years Molson has had the privilege in partnering with Crime Stoppers for the launch of the Toronto Holiday R.I.D.E program. This is just one initiative in our Responsible Choices campaign, our way of celebrating everyone who chooses to make sure all their holiday memories are good ones.
As we headed down the street, I said to Carole and Will from Molson, “Maybe they are going to be late, it is almost 7:30!” As soon as I said 7:30, in a blink of an eye, the Police RIDE Team was set and ready to go.
We had a small glimpse of Toronto’s finest in action during the spot check; it was something to see how they turn a stretch road into a mini command centre, with lights flashing, and bright pylons out to mark where vehicles need to pull over, the command centre situated in the middle and the R.I.D.E team in a manner of minutes out on the street to greet the first cars.
The Molson team was on hand to give out scrappers to a number of drivers who were making Responsible Choices this evening.
Toques off to Toronto Police Services and all other Emergency Services personal across Canada as they keep our roads safe not only for the Holidays but throughout the year.
