Conrad Black REGRETS Giving Up Canadian Citizenship

"Conrad Black, the fallen Canadian-born media baron who could be sentenced to decades in a U.S. prison, has acknowledged the social "awkwardness" caused by his legal woes and his "regret" over giving up his Canadian citizenship to become a British lord, according to comments published in the latest edition of Men's Vogue magazine." [...]

"Lord Black, who might have faced a lighter sentence if he'd been tried in Canada, admitted to Men's Vogue that he wished he hadn't surrendered his Canadian citizenship -- after a public battle of wills with former prime minister Jean Chrétien -- to take up a seat in the House of Lords.

"I do regret giving up my Canadian citizenship," he said, "but I always said I would take it back."

"Take it back," huh?

Can't have it. Too bad.

It isn't his to take back.

It's ours to give--if we choose.

Yeah ... I don't think convicted felons are eligible ... I'd like to see the Conservative government explain THAT to the people.
