The Alouettes and St.Patrick's Day: Players,
Cheerleaders and Mascot to Participate in Annual Parade

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 10, 2005) - For a ninth
consecutive season, the Alouettes will be participating in the St.
Patrick's Day Parade this Sunday as of noon.

This year, two all-utility Swiss-Austrian Pinzgauer trucks will
transport players, cheerleaders and Alouette mascot Touche down the
parade route. Among the players who will participate in the event are
2004 CFL Most Outstanding Defensive Player Anwar Stewart, linebackers
Kevin Johnson and Michael Botterill, offensive lineman Luke Fritz and
receiver Dave Stala. The cheerleaders on site will be Amanda, Line,
Joani, Shana, Genevieve and Roxane.

"This is a great opportunity for us to be part of the festivities while
getting involved in our community," said Alouettes' President and Chief
Executive Officer Mr. Larry Smith.

The starting time of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade is scheduled
for noon on Sunday, Mar. 13. Montreal will be celebrating its Irish
roots and the coming of spring for a 181st year. From its humble
beginnings to today, where this event is a "must see" for over 600,000
spectators, the parade has become an entertaining event for the entire
family. Colourful floats, mascots, bands, and more span the entire
length of the parade. The theme for this edition is "Cead Mile Failte -
A Hundred Thousand Welcomes"
