The 34th running of Operation Red Nose was unveiled Tuesday.
The initative encourages education on the dangers of drinking and driving and the importance of a safe ride home during the Christmas season.
Minister Responsible for SGI Joe Hargrave says the corporation is doing their best to deter impaired driving.
“SGI is also undertaking some powerful awareness campaigns this year,” Hargrave said. “This is to drive home the message to never drive home impaired. The most recent one, “Be a Good Wingman” will continue through to the New Year.”

This year, Operation Red Nose is running in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, the Battlefords and Yorkton.
Supported by its provincial partner, SGI, Operation Red Nose will provide its popular safe ride service.
“The holidays are about spending time with your loved ones,” Hargrave said. “We are proud to support safe ride services like Operation Red Nose that are dedicated to bringing you and the people you love home safely this holiday season.”
Again this year, motorists in Saskatchewan will be able to use Operation Red Nose’s mobile application to plan for a safe ride home during the holiday season.
