If you read the headline, you are forgiven for thinking this is the title of a new horror movie.
In fact, it's the truth.
Several years ago, I wrote about how Canada's famous publishing comrades in arms, David Radler and Conrad Black, were involved in a high-stakes game with legal authorities in Chicago.
Echoing the Prisoner's Dilemma, Radler decided to rat out his long-time partner of more than 30 years.
As a result, he received far less jail time, enabling him to return relatively quickly to his mansion on Southwest Marine Drive.
Black denied all allegations, winding up in a U.S. prison for 78 months before finally making his way back to Canada.
Well, guess what? The Globe and Mail has reported that Radler is now acting publisher of the Victoria Times-Colonist. He can thank his pals at Glacier Media Group for the appointment.
Meanwhile, Now magazine cofounder Michael Hollett has tweeted that Black joined movie magnate Robert Lantos for brunch at the launch of a new Canadian film channel called Starlight.
Another convicted Canadian icon, Garth Drabinsky, hasn't been so lucky. He was just stripped of his Order of Canada. For him, rehabilitation with the country's elites is just going to have to wait a little bit longer.
