Summary
"For thirty years, E. Leo Kolber was head of Cemp Investments, the Bronfman family trust, and Cadillac Fairview Corporation, one of the premier real estate firms in North America. A protege of the legendary Sam Bronfman and a close friend of Mr Sam's sons, Charles and Edgar, Kolber was the family's consigliere for decades of deals, including the buying of MGM in the 1960s. That deal foretold the disaster that overtook the third generation of Bronfmans after 1995, when Edgar Bronfman Jr sold Seagram's 25 percent interest in DuPont to buy MCA." "Named to the Senate of Canada by Pierre Trudeau, Kolber has served there for twenty years, including four years as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. Throughout this period, he was a senior bagman for the Liberal Party of Canada. Kolber also served for more than twenty-five years as a director of Seagram and the Toronto-Dominion Bank, whose famous headquarters, the TD Centre, was built by Fairview Corporation in the 1960s. Formerly chairman of Cineplex Odeon Theatres, he was also a longtime director of DuPont and MGM, among other companies in which the Bronfmans once held an important interest." "Now Leo Kolber tells the story of a man of influence at the centres of power in business and politics, a life he calls "a tremendous ride"--With business tycoons, from Sam and Charles Bronfman to Kirk Kerkorian, with famous politicians, from Pierre Trudeau and Brian Mulroney to Jean Chretien and Shimon Peres, with Hollywood moguls and nights out with the stars, from Danny Kaye to Frank Sinatra and Cary Grant."--Jacket
