Thread Name: BS: Who has all The Money?
Subject: RE: BS: Who has all The Money?
The old dynasties have the money in Canada. Five of the top ten anyway.

1. Thompson clan (Thompson-Reuters Media)
3. Irving clan (industrials)
4. Rogers clan (media)
9. Saputo clan (cheese)
10. Mannix clan (building, materials, etc.)

2. Galen Weston (Loblaws; markets, food)
5. Pattison (Vancouver entrepreneur)
6. Paul Desmarais (Power Corporation CEO
7. Bernard Sherman (pharmaceuticals)
8. Jeff Skoll (Ebay 'employee')

2 and 5 are long term money makers; might as well call them dynastic as well.
The top 50 all have over one billion.
