This New Year's, the ride's on Corby: Corby Distilleries marks Responsib'ALL 
Day 2013 by announcing historic partnership with Toronto Transit Commission. 
TORONTO, June 5, 2013 /CNW/ - Corby Distilleries Limited and its employees 
across Canada celebrated the third annual Responsib'ALL Day by joining with 
the 18,000 employees of Pernod Ricard S.A. and its affiliates around the world 
in a global day of action devoted to encouraging responsible consumption. 
This included an all-day event focused on reducing drinking and driving, held 
at one of Toronto's most environmentally friendly venues, the Evergreen Brick 
Works. The highlight of the day was the announcement of a ground-breaking 
partnership with the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC). 
This New Year's Eve, starting at 7:00 p.m., and continuing through to 7:00 
a.m. on New Year's Day, 2014, Corby will pick up the fare for everyone 
travelling on the TTC, North America's third largest transit system. 
"This innovative, three-year agreement is a true Canadian first that will 
raise the profile of this issue in the national discussion," said Patrick 
O'Driscoll, President and CEO of Corby. "We're proud to partner with the TTC 
and to show that Corby is ready to take action when it comes to reducing 
drinking and driving. We know that this is a year-round issue, and the biggest 
party of the year, New Year's Eve, provides the ideal platform for building 
awareness about the risks of drinking and driving. It is an invaluable 
opportunity to remind people about all the safe, responsible transportation 
options that are available to them -including public transit. In support of 
these efforts, Corby and the TTC are delighted to say, 'This New Year's, the 
ride's on us.'" 
"I am proud of the public service TTC provides. Our team works hard but even 
more so overnight at New Year's, helping keep Toronto safe," observed Karen 
Stintz, Chair of the TTC. "Through their sponsorship of TTC's free New Year's 
service, Corby is highlighting both what TTC provides and the need to act 
responsibly by not drinking and driving. On behalf of my Council colleagues 
and fellow Commissioners I thank Corby for their contribution." 
The announcement is in keeping with Pernod Ricard's agreement made at the 2012 
International Center for Alcohol Policies (ICAP) Conference. Pernod Ricard 
joined with 11 leading beer, wine and spirits companies and two industry trade 
associations, in agreeing to a five-year program, starting in 2013, built 
around five commitments and dedicated to reducing alcohol-related harm. 
In addition to the partnership announcement, Corby's Responsib'ALL Day 
featured an address from Pierre Pringuet, CEO of Pernod Ricard, outlining the 
company's global efforts to reduce the harmful use of alcohol, as well as 
guest speakers such as Anne Leonard in Toronto, Executive Director of "arrive 
alive DRIVE SOBER(®)", which works with key stakeholders and community 
partners on initiatives to eradicate impaired driving in the Province of 
Ontario, and, at the Montréal event, Hubert Sacy, the Director General of 
Éduc'alcool, a not-for-profit organization focused on helping young people 
and adults make responsible decisions about drinking and the circumstances in 
which they drink. Jan Westcott, President and CEO of Spirits Canada, also 
joined Corby's Responsib'ALL Day event in Toronto. The day concluded with 
educational activities designed to give Corby employees tools they can use, in 
their communities and with their friends and families, to encourage 
responsible consumption. This included a presentation by Lisa Thompson, from 
Ontario's Ministry of Transportation, who introduced the "intoxiclock(®)", an 
interactive teaching tool that tracks and shows levels of intoxication and the 
rate at which a body metabolizes alcohol. 
Responsib'ALL Day is a "convivial" event with a serious purpose. It reflects 
the global commitment, shared by everyone at Corby and their colleagues 
throughout Pernod Ricard and its affiliates, to promote responsible
