A Couple of Canadians were surprised by an encounter with a robot dog patrolling the streets for people who are not social distancing.

Video captured by a user named @bloodtear shows a creepy neon yellow dog-shaped robot with bright headlight and taillights scrambling down the street toward their car.

Instead of being freaked out, the female passenger is strangely enamored with the robot, which quickly scrambles away from the car.

A man who was with the robot dog told the couple he used the robot for work.

Robot technology is quickly taking over service industries, such as food and packaging delivery and even providing security.

The robot was designed by Boston Dynamics, and this particular model robot is called SPOT.

Mask hysteria is bringing out the worst in people who believe it is their duty to police free-thinking citizens who choose not to wear a mask.

A viral video on Twitter.com shows a white male "Karen" assaulting a Black man for not wearing a mask.

When the customer pushed back, the man began screaming, "WTF? You assaulted me. Call 911! He assaulted me! Do NOT give him his food!"

After the shop keeper handed the customer his pizza, the male Karen destroyed a display case. "You shouldn't have done that. He assaulted me!" the man yelled, before leaving the store to pursue the customer.

Twitter users noted that the man wasn't wearing his own mask correctly. Nor was he practicing social distancing.

"He's screaming call 911 while holding a phone," tweeted @TPostMillennial. "Man, those masks really do keep oxygen from reaching the brain. And so guess that display case pushing isn't violence either."

Canada isn't rolling out the welcome mat for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle after they quit their duties as "senior" royals last week.

Queen Elizabeth II gave the couple her blessing to step away from their duties and divide their time between Canada and the UK.

But Canada's biggest newspaper says the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex aren't welcome to live there since they are no longer "senior royals."

In a scathing editorial published on Wednesday, The Globe said Harry and Meghan are "welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals.

"Canada cannot allow you to come to stay ... it breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo," the editorial said.

The article says Harry's presence in Canada disturbs the country's long history of breaking away from the British political system. Canada broke away from British rule centuries ago.

"[Canada's] unique monarchy, and its delicate yet essential place in our constitutional system, means that a royal resident - the Prince is sixth in the line of succession - is not something that Canada can allow," the paper said.

"A royal living in this country does not accord with the longstanding nature of the relationship between Canada and Britain, and Canada and the Crown."

The article added: "If you're a senior member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home."

The article was published amid reports that Canada would foot the expensive bill for the couple's security detail.

Meghan and her infant son, Archie, are guests of a Russian billionaire in his $14 million mansion on Vancouver Island.

Harry, who remains in London, isn't expected to join Meghan and Archie in Canada for at least another week.

Workers for Service Canada were issued a correction to a previous directive regarding greeting callers with non-specific gender neutral language. The old directive caused mass confusion over the use of "parents" instead of "mother" or "father" -- when speaking to the public.

The Canadian Judicial Council is reviewing the improper conduct of a judge after he blamed a 19-year-old rape victim for not doing enough to prevent her rape.

The teenager accused her rapist of sexually assaulting her as she bent over a bathroom sink at a party in 2014.

Federal Court Justice Robin Camp, who presided over the rapist's trial, asked the woman, "Why couldn't you just keep your knees together?"
