Week 19 had a little bit of everything; some fun community involvement with the Riders, a white-out night in BC and a great afternoon of recognition for some current Alouettes at their U SPORTS alma later Laval.

It began in Montreal, where the Als downed the visiting Argos to improve to 9-7 on the year.

Percival Molson Stadium is rocking these days.

The back end of Friday’s doubleheader was white-out night at BC Place, and the Leos came out in some scary masks.

The Riders ran away with it in the second half, cruising to a comfortable 27-19 win that flattered the hosts, and Kyran Moore is just the biggest ball of energy ever.

Saturday afternoon saw the Ticats drop Ottawa by 21 points for a Hamilton franchise-record 13th win on the year.

Saturday’s late game pitted Calgary against Winnipeg in a crucial West Division clash; the Stamps pulled out the victory, 37-33.

Veteran Calgary defensive back Brandon Smith announced following the game that 2019 will be his final season. His present and past teammates promptly took to Twitter to salute the three-time Grey Cup champion.

Fresh off their road win, the Riders were out in the community in force at a punt, pass, kick event!

Following their win at home, a number of Alouettes player returned to their alma mater Laval to be honoured by the Rouge et Or football program.
