Covid lockdowns in Canada are getting pretty strict lately. And apparently, so are the Karens.
Yes, Karen actually CALLED THE POLICE because she thought she saw someone eating inside the Ardmore Tea Room in Halifax, Nova Scotia, which would've been illegal under new lockdown rules that only allow for takeout.
Turns out, though, the "person" was actually a mannequin which had been seated at the table—along with other mannequins at other tables—to promote social distancing in the restaurant back when it was open.
SO HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES, KAREN?!
SOCIAL DISTANCING, KAREN!
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, KAAAAAREN!!!
Oh, wait, what's that? The Halifax Police are actually ENCOURAGING Karens to call in violations?
No. No. Please tell me that's not true..
Halifax Regional Police have encouraged the public to call in complaints about rule breakers, and help enforce COVID-19 restrictions. Officers in Halifax issued two dozen violation tickets last weekend.

It didn't take them long, however, to realize that they weren't just catching their reflections in the window at Ardmore Tea Room; those were actual dummies inside the restaurant.
