Thomsons are richest Canadians for 12th year
Friday 3 December 2010
The Thomson family, which has a controlling interest in Thomson Reuters, kept a strong grip on their status as the wealthiest Canadians this year, seeing their net worth increase by 6.2 per cent to more than C$23 billion.
They were far ahead of the second richest Canadian, grocery store magnate Galen Weston with C$8.5 billion, according to a survey by Canadian Business magazine.
It was the 12th year in a row that the Thomsons have held the top spot.
The list was calculated based on the real and estimated value of investments held at the end of September. ■
