Danaye's Daily Dose for December 1st, 2020

Calgary police say that members of the force and bylaw officers will be clamping down on people violating health orders, including those gathering indoors, those dining at restaurants with people outside of their household and those holding huge gatherings. They say the tickets are being handed out over the big anti-mask protest held downtown on the weekend, adding it’s not always safe to issue the tickets at the time of the offense, especially in a situation where emotions are running high.
The Pandas from the Calgary Zoo have arrived safely back in China after a marathon 3 day trip.

No word on what they’re going to be doing with the Panda Exhibit at the zoo! My family is going to miss those guys SO much!
