While Operation Red Nose was ready and waiting Friday to give safe rides home to locals, nobody called for a ride.
“It was likely too cold for everyone,” said Dave Dickson, community-safety co-ordinator.
“We had 17 volunteers and gave zero rides.” By Saturday, however, things heated up and the program’s 24 volunteers were kept very busy. They gave 51 rides and transported 116 people safely home,” Dickson said. Rides will be continue to be offered each Friday and Saturday up until Dec. 31.
