Afternoon headlines: Stating the obvious, & an international incident

In what must be the most unsurprising news story of the past week, Reuters declares that Canadians have little sympathy for Conrad Black’s plight. Thats what happens when you revoke your Canadian citizenship and declare ‘good riddance’ so you can go get yourself a snobby British Title.    Of course, that wont stop certain segments of the conservative population from pleading with Harper to help poor old Conrad out.  Maybe they should petition Bush instead – he’s already shown he’s more then willing to throw away jail sentences for convicted conservatives.

Also, I must say I almost feel sorry for poor Steve Harper; here he is trying to build up relations with Central and South America, and in the midst of his trip, an international incident breaks out over a soccer brawl here, with Chile officially protesting what they call “unjustified aggression” by Toronto police officers toward their U-20 soccer team.  He really hasnt gotten much of a break of late, has he? As I said, I ALMOST feel sorry for him.

  • You got it about Harper Scott… I just wrote about that on my blog. Life is all about timing, so maybe this is something that he should take as a sign.

  • Actually, I posted the above comments in the wrong discussion thread.

    My apologies to Scott.

    That's a perfect summary of Canadians' real reactions to Conrad Black. 

    In my opinion, those words also perfectly sum up the truth about Conrad Black's real plight. He's an arrogant bastard who has done far more to harm our national interest.

    I have no problem in coming up with a long (very long, actually) citation of the reasons Canada should be happy to be rid of him.

    Let him rot in prison. Maybe Barb Amiel, his wife, can occupy her time in conjugal visits instead of using his political connections with the media (Macleans Magazine) to foist her mediocre journalist's talents on the Canadian public.  

    Glenn Fitzgerald.
