Conrad Black stripped of Order of Canada, booted from Privy Council
Conrad Black may still be the baron of Crossharbour in the U.K., but he's no longer in the Order of Canada.
Johnston has also kicked Black out of the Queen’s Privy Council for Canada, on the advice of Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
"Both decisions are effective immediately," a Rideau Hall news release states.
In 2007, Black was convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice in the U.S.
Black was appointed to the order in 1990.
