Shaw TV Vancouver Produces Town Hall Forum

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 24, 2006) - Shaw Communications Inc. (TSX:SJR.B) (NYSE:SJR):

Shaw TV Vancouver today announced the production of a 90 minute town hall forum focused on finding solutions surrounding Crystal Methamphetamine addiction. "Life or Meth - Finding Solutions" has been produced in partnership with the Maple Ridge Crystal Meth Task Force. The forum includes the participation of former addicts, local politicians, and task force members that have witnessed incredible success rates when dealing with Crystal Meth addicts.

The 90 minute segment will be hosted by Vancouver radio personality Val Cole, and will include pre-produced video segments on former addicts and their stories as well as a video segment on a youth forum hosted by the Crystal Meth Victoria Society.

Specifically, the town hall forum will examine the background on Crystal Meth - what it is, how it is made, and why it has become such a prevalent issue across North America.

This 90 minute forum will air on Shaw TV Vancouver on Sunday November 26th at 6:30 p.m., and will be airing on all Shaw TV systems in British Columbia over the next few weeks.
