Who's a rat?

I thought he was still in the slammer:

David Radler has gone back to his roots with a deal that gives him and his partners an ownership stake in the Sherbrooke Record, the newspaper where he and Conrad Black got their start together in 1969.

Radler is a shareholder in a private company called Alberta Newspaper Group that acquired an interest in the Record as part of a transaction last month with Vancouver's Glacier Ventures International Corp.

Radler, 64, conceded in an interview yesterday that nostalgia for the Record played a part in the decision to include the newspaper in the deal with Glacier.

"You always want to come back to the paper where you started, but, ultimately, the value of the investment will be judged by how we do, not on sentiment," Radler said from his Vancouver office.

"The funny part is that I went back there last week, and there aren't that many people who even remember us."
