Résumé Charles Bronfman's thoughts on his life, family, career and his significant accomplishments in sport and philanthropy. Key events in the life of the heir to one of Canada's great fortunes. Born in 1931 to the fabulously wealthy Bronfmans, Charles grew up in a 20-room mansion with many staff. Via their control of the distilling giant Seagram, the Bronfman family dominated the liquor business with brands such as Crown Royal, V.O. and Chivas Regal. By the 1990s, the family's wealth was in the billions, culminating in the $35-billion sale of Seagram to France's Vivendi, which turned into a financial and family disaster. Charles reflects on his relationship with his parents, his brother Edgar, working in the family business, landing Canada's first big league baseball franchise (the Montreal Expos), promoting Canadian identity through Heritage Minutes and supporting Israel through countless innovative initiatives including Birthright Israel - and to how the Bronfman family splintered over the sale of Seagram.
