The world's 7,000,000,000th baby was not born this morning in Ottawa. Or rather, there's no way to tell which of the baby's delivered on October 31st, 2011 is the 7,000,000,000th, because nobody is, for example, peeking into all the yerts in Mongolia to see what baby's are being born over there when.
But of course, the Ottawa Citizen has some money and prizes to give out, so give them out they must. Good luck to young Caiden Lewis, but thumbs down to the Citizen: this is not news. Its a self-serving stunt.
