    Apotex has been having problems with there production for over a year and is the main cause of the current shortage of certain drugs in Canada.

    I remember when Barry used to live in my EDA and was a major donor to Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party until Health Canada started to investigate his generic drug company, Apotex, for contaminated filler material produced in foreign countries. Then Barry shifted his political allegiances and his money to Justin Trudeau’s Liberals,

    The $1500 a head fundraiser held at Barry’s new faux French chateau mansion on Old Colony Road was the social event of the season.

    At the time, I was intrigued by how a person could become so wealthy — I think at the time, Forbes estimated his fortune at approximately $7 billion.

    My research led me to Sherman’s origins in the drug business and how he acquired his dead uncle’s company, Empire. His uncle, Louis Winter, left 4 orphans and no will.

    Court battles have been going on over the estate for the past 50 years. The latest ruling is that Sherman does not know his cousins anything. Perhaps legally, that is correct but I can’t but help wonder if he had an unfilled moral duty to his cousins,

    At this point, we do not know what happened to Barry and his wife, Honey. To comment would be sheer speculation but I will say this: karma can be a bitch.

        More like shame, maybe for “screwing” their orphaned cousins or doing something else that we don’t know about yet.
