Morning Brew: January 3rd, 2007

Your cobra-inclusive morning news roundup for Wednesday January 3rd, 2007:

Changes to the parental statute, a statue beheaded, a truly elusive snake, and slick roads are making news today.

Although daytime highs have been hovering freakishly about the 10C mark, our nights and early mornings are in the minuses. The salt trucks are out in full force but many slick morning roads are causing slipping, sliding and crashing. Sub-zero wins.

Yesterday an Ontario court made a ruling that allows a child to have 3 parents. The same-sex partner of the child's biological mother can now also legally be that child's mother. Two moms are better than one.

After the intricate theft of a massive bronze statue of Ukrainian poet Taras Schevchenko from an Oakville park, the head of the statue turned up at a smelter and an arrest was made. Busted.

Filed under strange update: Three months ago, a cobra went missing in the city and to this day it has still not been found and captured. Tenants have been forced to move and plenty of money has been spent by the city in attempts to safely resolve the issue. If you happen to hear hissing near 16 Church St, I hope you're wearing your fast shoes.
