Canadian Justice in Action

Okay, so Hollinger International insider David Radler has plead guilty to fraud charges, [Canadian Press, Hollinger International insider Radler pleads guilty to fraud in U.S. court].
Radler, the 63-year-old former publisher of the Chicago Sun-Times and chief operating officer of Hollinger International, was accused of participating in a scheme to divert more than $32 million US from the newspaper holding company.
Okay. So by my math, with the Canadian dollar at about 85 cents, he diverted about CDN $37.6 million dollars.

Ergo, that should mean he has to
perform 25 lecture tours talking about ethics in business, and report in by 9 pm on weekdays, over the next couple of years or so.

That'd show him.

I love the smell of justice in the morning.

I'm fully aware that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, and this piece is likely the lowest form of sarcasm. Martha Stewart even did time - Club Fed, sure - but she did time.
