Let His Blackness Come Home

It is clear that the travails of prison life--the shitty food, the difficulty of taking a shower without getting gang-raped, the need to trade your Order Of Canada for some "leave me alone time", and an impromptu marriage to the convict with the most cigarettes--have all conspired to make Conrad Black a marginally less hate-worthy human being.  In fact, no Progressive who has read his extensive prison writings re the injustices of the U.S. penal system could but fail to hope that Mr. Black's sentence might  be extended awhile, so that his moral evolution might be completed.  Nevertheless, it is my view that the federal government is correct in letting him return to his Toronto home, even if his spiritual growth has not yet traversed its full course.  Give me three weeks alone with the guy in intensive re-education and I could have him dropping tabs of E  and seducing Hippy Chicks down at Occupy Toronto.  Please give the man a chance.  I sincerely believe he could still become our Che.

But what if he has determined that legalizing drugs is the magic bullet will save billions of dollars and dismantle the police state, then he sees that the Liberals are for legalizing pot, then he joins the party and becomes our leader?

It's a slippery slope. You let in one criminal and they will all want to come in...

Did Lord Beaverbrook, a Canadian from N.B. Atkin, have to give up his Canadian citizenship???

@Anyong

I don't believe so. There was no such thing as a Canadian Citizen until 1946. It's kind of hard to give up something you don't have.:)
