The Verdict on Conrad Black
American Karma has bitten Conrad Black in the butt, and Paula Todd is going to cover every angle of that nasty bite this evening on a special two-hour edition of The Verdict on CTV Newsnet. Too bad it took the American justice system to do what the Canadian system refuses to do: take money theft, aka fraud, seriously. Whether it's a charming con man slipping a couple of thou out of the wallet of a gullible woman or a corporate titan acting on his feelings of entitlement to corporate money, fraud affects people badly, and in some instances leads to suicide. It's time Canada shows the same ferocity in going after white collar criminals as the U.S.A. does.
