Zavier Broomes is the first child born in Dufferin in 2009. The baby has not been visited by children's aid, but he is probably already under watch, since recordkeeping now covers all children. We can see some factors causing social workers to salivate: the parents show no signs of wealth, and it appears to be an interracial family. We wish this future Canadian Barack Obama good luck in in a system stacked heavily against him.

THE FIRST OF 2009: Zavier Broomes of Shelburne arrived right on schedule at Headwaters Health Care Centre Jan.1 to become the first child born in Dufferin this year. Even so, the 9 pound 8 ounce baby had parents Danielle and Kenwyn a bit concerned when he waited until mid-afternoon to present his 25-inch frame to the world. "I was surprised that another wasn't born closer to midnight," Danielle said. Zavier is not only the first born in Dufferin in 2009, but becomes the firstborn of the Broomes family.
