TRI Strategic Entertainment Ltd.and CCNMatthews:
Sheila Copps Joins Weekend Radio Show As Host

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 18, 2005) - Former Deputy Prime
Minister Sheila Copps has joined "Weekends", a nationally syndicated
talk radio program as host, with her first segment airing on Saturday
March 19th, 2005. "Weekends" is currently heard across Canada on CFRB
Toronto, CHML Hamilton, CJBK London, CJME Saskatoon, CKOM Regina, CJOB
Winnipeg, CHQR Calgary and CKOV Kelowna.

"I have incredible respect for Sheila and what she has endured
throughout her political career. In the past year, with her book and her
foray into acting, Sheila has shown Canadians a different side of her
personality that is refreshing and adventurous. She is a real example of
"the never give up" attitude that Canadians are known for." said Bryan
Woodruff, President and General Manager of TRI Strategic Entertainment
Ltd., the shows creator and producer.

"First off, I have a love for radio" said Sheila "I also want to share
what I have seen, learned and experienced in my life with the audience
-- not politics -- but what I have really learned about living. Alright,
maybe some politics too."

"Weekends" is also partnered with 50 Plus, Canada's premiere baby boomer
magazine. "The show targets adults over the age of 40 and we deliver
information on wine, investing, politics and lifestyle issues that are
important to that age group, the same principles that 50 Plus delivers
in its magazine" said Bryan Woodruff of their partnership on the program.

CCNMatthews also offers media support to the program. "We believe in
Canadian radio programming and that this show has the opportunity to
create a national forum on issues that are not explored fully enough"
stated Michael J. Nowlan, President and CEO of CCNMatthews.
