Your morning news roundup for Monday December 17th, 2007:

It snowed a lot this weekend, making for troublesome conditions across the GTA. Many school bus services and some schools are cancelled/closed, a number of flights in and out of Pearson and the Island were delayed/cancelled, and there was at least one weather-related tragedy.

Facebook is suing a Toronto-area internet porn company for attempting to hack its system and obtain personal information about its members. Isn't making personal information public what Facebook is all about? In other news, John is eating a maple glazed donut right now and Sarah posted a photo of her licking her friend's face.

Former St. Catharines resident and sicko murderer's accomplice Karla Homolka is moving to the West Indies. With any luck she'll meet a hungry great white shark on her first day there.

The RCMP have intercepted a record quantity of heroin being smuggled through Toronto's Pearson International Airport this year. 100 kilos of cocaine, and 20,000 kilos of khat have also been snagged by authorities.

Toronto's 81st homicide victim of 2007 was a targeted hit. Suspects forced their way into a home, sought out the victim, and shot him in the head. No arrests have been made yet.
