The man formerly known as prisoner no. 18330-424 (i.e. Conrad Black) is back in Toronto—greeted at his Bridle Path home with an awkward-looking kiss from Barbara Amiel and a lot of press. Newspapers speculated that Black, having served the last months of his sentence for fraud and obstruction of justice, would be taken to a deportation centre in Florida to be deported to either Canada or the U.K. Instead, he made his way to Miami International Aiport accompanied by a police motorcade, and is believed to have flown straight to Toronto in a private plane (we wouldn’t expect anything less from the baron).
