Quickie : Conrad Black

I understand that the NDP want to have Conrad Black stripped of his Order of Canada. Now, I might be just getting cute, but doesn't one have to be a Canadian to be eligible to be an Officer of the Order of Canada?

I guess, technically, he could remain an honourary Officer of the Order.

I just thought I'd interrupt the Liberal-bashing for the moment.

He was still a full Canadian citizen in 1990 when he received the honour. However, in 1999 he declared that his Canadian citizenship was an 'impediment' to him and he went through the formal legal process of renunciation of citizenship.

He lost all rights to the Order of Canada on that day -
