Two legacies, one dark mystery: Toronto elite reeling after violent deaths of Barry and Honey Sherman

The memorial service, packed with 6,000 people — including some of the most powerful business leaders and politicians in the country, and broadcast live on television — gave the family an opportunity to present the version of their parents’ legacy they want people to remember when they hear their names. Those eulogizing them painted a picture of the couple as generous souls who loved giving their wealth away, Barry concealing a heart full of warmth and love beneath a gruff exterior.

    Rumor has it they were victims of a scam that certain government departments were running. The departments would begin “investigating” companies until they agreed to start donating to the liberal part. I’ve heard he was planning on testifying.

        Take it with a grain of salt as my source wouldn’t tell me where they heard it.

        The financial thing is a red hearring as he fought off the challenge by his relatives for the money.

        • Everything is salty at this point.

            Mmm. Salt.

            Don’t mention Salt !

    I took a guess that the service had heavy security because the huge Hall was very close to a large muslim population. These jew-haters would have loved to rammed a truck bomb in the build that had thousands of jews inside.
    They wouldn’t have care that Justin was also inside because there are enough radical Muslim MP’s in Trudeau’s party and the Government to ruin canada from within .

    How does one “REEL” in this day and age ?
    Why does one “REEL” ?
    I really feel like “REELING” .
    How do I “REEL” ?

  • Shebel

    I would really be “REELING” –
    If I had something to HIDE.
