Molson Donates Beer to Canadian Troops Stationed all Over the World

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 5, 2006) - No matter where they are stationed throughout the world, Canadian troops will be able to enjoy the true Canadian taste of a cold Molson Canadian this festive season.

Molson Canada is proud to play our part by donating 18,600 cans of Molson Canadian to our 3,100 troops stationed in Africa, the Balkans, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Southwest Asia, and the Arabian Gulf Region.

The beer will be designated for special occasions set to take place on Canadian Bases such as Christmas and New Year's Eve, when off-duty soldiers can partake in the season's festivities and Molson is pleased to be able to add some Molson Canadian content to those festivities!

"We want to acknowledge in a small way, our troops who make a difference for us stationed all around the world," said Kevin Boyce, President & CEO, Molson Canada. "Molson has a long standing tradition of supplying support to our troops and we are happy to continue that tradition by sending some cheer to those who are so far away from their homes and families, especially at this time of year."

In addition, Molson has donated a Molson Canadian ball cap to be included in holiday care packages, sent by the Department of National Defense's Operation Santa Clause program, to every deployed Canadian soldier. Molson has proudly donated items in years past, to this program designed to enhance the morale of Canadian troops during the holiday season.
