Not sure if that title is supposed to be sarcastic...

Not at all. He is certainly the most talented person to emerge from the province in recent decades.

i can't think of any true Canadian heroes

Roméo Dallaire, perhaps



What did Black ever do that was heroic?

Conrad Black gave up his citizenship to be knighted in England. He's a common thief and shouldn't be allowed to return here at all.

If the thread title isn't sarcastic, then it's offensive to Canadians.

They hypocrisy of the right wing in this country when it comes to the return of Omar Khadr versus the Conrad Black situation is really something.

I had the misfortune of reading Black's biography of Duplessis while writing a paper back in law school. Talk about the book being a masturbatory exercise - the man loves the sound of his own voice and has apparently never been told that writing is the art of editing.
