America’s haughtiest jailbird, Conrad Black, is getting out of the slammer this weekend—and thinking longingly of Toronto. After serving more than 38 months for financial misdeeds, the media tycoon and former Canadian citizen wants to move back to the city where his wife, Barbara Amiel—and several beloved dogs—live. However, Black’s fate is in the hands of Immigration Minister Jason Kenney since Black renounced his citizenship to take a seat in the U.K.’s House of Lords (of course, there’s also the whole convicted felon thing). If the baron is allowed onto Canadian soil, he already has at least one invite: his epically loquacious memoir, A Matter of Principle, was nominated for this year’s National Business Book Award, which will be announced May 28 at a downtown hotel. See you there, Conrad? [CBC]

Should Jason Kenney allow Conrad Black to move back to Canada?
