St. Michael's waiting for Conrad Black's appeal

December 12, 2007

Conrad Black made many philanthropic donations, in his own name and through Hollinger. 2007 has been a troubling year for the Black name, and some organizations may be considering the pros and cons of remaining affiliated with the Lord of Crossharbour.  The University of St. Michael's College, at UofT, received a $1 million donation from Black 8 years ago, and will wait to make a decision until the legal dust settles.  Two years ago, Queen's University returned a $900,000 gift to David Radler and removed his name from its School of Business, following his own guilty plea.
