Danaye's Daily Dose for January 7th, 2020
A day full of absolutely shocking events in the US yesterday as hundreds of Trump Supporters stormed Capitol Hill, causing a ton of politicians and staff to be evacuated, including the Vice President. One of the intruders, a woman, was shot and killed and a ton of damage was caused to the historic building- and this morning it’s being reported that 3 more people have also lost their lives. Members of congress were able to return late last night and do what they were there to do in the first place: they have confirmed Joe Biden as the President of the United States. To follow the story, follow our friends at CTV.
World Leaders also spoke out on what many call a war on democracy.
Canadians are deeply disturbed and saddened by the attack on democracy in the United States, our closest ally and neighbour. Violence will never succeed in overruling the will of the people. Democracy in the US must be upheld - and it will be.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) January 6, 2021
Democracy - the right of people to exercise a vote, have their voice heard and then have that decision upheld peacefully should never be undone by a mob. Our thoughts are with everyone who is as devastated as we are by the events of today. I have no doubt democracy will prevail.— Jacinda Ardern (@jacindaardern) January 7, 2021
Premiere Jason Kenney FINALLY appeared for the first time since New Years Day, this time on a Facebook Livestream.

If you wanna check all that he had to say, here it is.
Flying into Canada will now officially require a negative COVID test. People who are currently outside of the country and planning to return home soon are now scrambling to find a way to get tested in another country. Some resorts are offering a rapid test, costing between 150 to 500 bucks, but for people who aren’t in an all inclusive, it’s been a struggle to track down a test, leaving some feeling stranded.
