Conrad Black to be allowed back into Canada after prison release

Conrad Black will be returning to Canada upon his release from a Florida prison later this week, sources confirmed Tuesday.
The Montreal-born former press baron who has been serving time in a Miami-based penitentiary on one count of fraud and obstruction of justice, has secured a temporary resident permit from Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration department allowing him to remain in the country for up to a year.
“He was granted the permit,” confirmed a source familiar with events who asked not to be named. However, no one in Lord Black’s camp will confirm details of when he will return to Canada, or how.
Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney, asked about Lord Black in Parliament, said it was a private matter about which he could not comment. But he said he had given instructions that public servants would decide on Lord Black’s application independently of any input from him or his office.
