No Operation RedNose Service this Year

Operation Red Nose Will Not Operate Its Safe Ride Service in Ontario for the 2020 Holiday Season

Quebec City, October 7th, 2020 – After careful consideration of the current public health situation and its logistical  impact on the service, Operation Red Nose has decided not to provide its famous safe ride service during the  2020 holiday season.  

“The safety of our volunteers, clients, and local host organizations has always been one of our top priorities,” said  Jean-Philippe Giroux, Executive Director for Operation Red Nose. “The decision was made after long and careful  consideration, and not without emotion. We want to thank all of our volunteers and local partners who keep  supporting their community year after year. We look forward to working with you again next year.” 

Even in the absence of the safe ride service this year, Operation Red Nose will continue to promote its road safety  message, and remind everyone to always plan for a safe way to get home by calling a friend, a relative, a cab, by  designating a sober driver, or by staying overnight.
