Ontario Safety League teams with Insurance Bureau of Canada on Operation Red Nose

Quebec City, Quebec – The Ontario Safety League (OSL) has once again joined forces with the Insurance Bureau of Canada to bring Operation Red Nose to seven Ontario communities. The service, which operates in more than 90 communities across seven provinces, is a volunteer service to reduce impaired driving during the holiday season.

This year, the free designated-driver service will operate in the Ontario communities of Chatham-Kent, Hearst, Kingston, Newmarket-Aurora, North Bay, Quinte and Sudbury, starting the last weekend of November until the end of December.

New this year is a pilot project in Toronto’s Distillery District; patrons of the District will be able to take advantage of a safe ride home to anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area between December 12 and 15, 2007.

The service, now in its 24th year, operates in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia. To become an Operation Red Nose volunteer, fill out and return the application form at
