Because he isn't rich enough to be in the top 10? Black had $300 million or so 10 years ago, and since then his empire has unraveled. But even if he still had all of that. 300 is a much smaller number than 3,510.

He's not Canadian. He's British. He renounced his Canadian citizenship so he could become a member of the British House Of Lords.

Actually that was only because PM Jean Chretien decided to be a colossal dick about it.

And he was completely within his rights to do it. Regardless, he's no longer Canadian. His title was more important than his country.
