Black hopes to return to Canada
Source: CBC News

Conrad Black, who is set to appear in a Chicago courtroom on Friday, spoke publicly for the first time since being released from prison, telling CBC News that he hoped a judge would allow him to return to Canada.

"I hope that we'll get an agreement for me to go back to Canada. Apart from that, it should be pretty straightforward," the Canadian-born Black told CBC News exclusively as he arrived at a Miami airport to depart for Chicago.

Black has a gated estate in the exclusive Bridle Path area of Toronto.

Asked whether he had evolved during his time in jail, the former media baron said: "I'm not getting into that now. No doubt I have but I'm not getting into it now."

So a person who is not a Canadian, and has a record, is looking to go to Canada.

1. I don't think he'll get in, but you never know.
Doesn't he still have some unanswered charges against him? I could be wrong. It's kind of ironic he wants to come back, being he renounced his citizenship here so he could assume British peerage.

He apparently helped a lot of prisoners during his stay to get their GED's. Not something that should gain him a pass for anything, but I was glad to hear he tried to use his time for good.

3. Clearly he seems to think
His british peerage excludes him from a Canadian regulation that does not allow convicted felons in.
He DID renounce his citizenship -

sucks to be you SIR. No thank you - you can stay in the US. Cheerio!

4. This assholes release is explicitly illegal
A foreigner, who is inadmissible to the United States can ONLY be released to the custody of ICE for the purposes of immediate removal. Conrad Black is no longer a legal resident of the United States and could not obtain a visa to travel to the United States. He must therefore remain in custody while his appeal is considered.

5. Doesn't Canada have a law keeping felons out of their country?
I believe Mr. Black will have to wait a minimum of 10 years before he can be considered to be allowed into Canada.
