Operation Red Nose will not operate an Ottawa chapter for second year in a row

For the second year in a row, there will be no Ottawa chapter of Operation Red Nose, the volunteer-run group that gets you and your car home safely after a night of holiday parties.

Nez Rouge Outaouais says it may respond to a certain number of demands on the Ottawa side within its limits.

They say they just can't offer full coverage of the Ottawa area in addition to its own territory.

A spokesperson says an Ottawa chapter will not run for "operational" reasons and that a spokesperson would not be available to comment before the launch of this year's campaign next week.
