Canada's New National Bird Is The Whiskey Jack, Cheers!

So, for those of you who don't know (myself included) Canada apparently has a national bird. Why? I have no clue what the purpose of having a national bird is, but luckily ours ended up being ridiculously cute.

Canada's new national bird (according to National Geographic) is the gray jay which is also known as a whiskey jack and people seem to already be obsessed with it. Gray Jays are known for being hardy, friendly and smart, which are basically the three things all Canadians are! ;)

Whether you love him or hate him, you have to admit that Doug Ford has a knack for creating memorable moments — even if they aren't always intentional.

In fact, the one silver lining to come out of the Ontario premier's seemingly endless train of COVID-19 press conferences is when, every once in a while, he says something so bizarre that Twitter just blows up.
