Danaye's Daily Dose for Wednesday, July 21st
Another hazy morning in Calgary as smoke from wildfires in the provinces surrounding us continues to blow in, thankfully our air quality is sitting at 3 or low risk so it’s not SUPER bad.
Meanwhile, the situation for our neighbours in BC is getting super bad. The province has declared a state of emergency as wildfires continue to burn out of control. There are nearly 300 fires in the province right now, with a few more popping up near Shushwap Lake and Three Valley Lake near the TransCanada Highway. Firefighters from Alberta and The US are going in to help with no help from the weather as hot and dry conditions are forecast to continue.

Team Canada is already in action in Tokyo this morning even though the opening ceremony isn't until Friday. Our women's softball team beat Mexico this morning and the women's soccer team tied with Japan. Things are a little tense in Olympic Village as 67 COVID cases are now connected to the games including athletes and crew. The head of the organizing committee says they won't rule out cancelling the games if cases continue to spike.
With the Olympics kicking off on Friday we’re getting a nice Pre-Olympic treat in the form of the Jonas Brothers showing down against each other in Olympic events in what looks like the greatest show of sibling rivalry of all time!
