Operation Red Nose starts back up this Friday and runs until the end of December

Operation Red Nose is back after the COVID-19 hiatus, and the local committee says they’re excited to get into the swing of things.


The free ride service is volunteer-run and gets you and your vehicle home safely during the holiday season.


Thompson committee president Dan Colosie explains why this initiative is vital for the community.


“Over the holiday season, we generally see more gatherings with family and friends and with that comes the increased potential for driving under the influence. Having Operation Red Nose available during the holidays allows people to make the safe choice of not driving while impared and also getting their vehicle home safe to their destination which is shown to be very effective across Canada in reducing the number of incidents revolving around impared driving”


Operation Red Nose kicks off this Friday and runs every Friday and Saturday from now until the end of December.
