Operation Red Nose is not running in Manitoba this holiday season – Winnipeg | The Canadian News

For the second consecutive holiday season, Operation Red Nose is holding back its program in Manitoba.

The organization says that the COVID-19 situation is still too unpredictable at this time.

“The safety of our volunteers and clients is our priority, so the difficult decision to push our safe travel campaign through 2022 is ultimately the most reasonable given the current health situation.” Anne-Marie Audet, Executive Director of Operation Red Nose Canada.

“We have thought a lot about our decision and it was very difficult to make.”
