Family Rejects Canadian Billionaire Couple's Death Was Murder-Suicide

In a gruesome incident that has shocked the Canadian business community, Barry Sherman, the billionaire founder of Canadian generic drug Apotex Inc, and his wife Honey, were found dead yesterday at their Toronto home. Immediately after the news broke, anonymous police and press reports noted that the deaths were "suspicious" and some suggested that it might've been a murder-suicide. As we noted on Saturday, according to a preliminary police report, there were no signs of forced entry.

However, while investigators are still awaiting the results of autopsies performed on the couple, their children have expressed outrage at the media’s willingness to jump to conclusions.

Our parents shared an enthusiasm for life and commitment to their family and community totally inconsistent with the rumors regrettably circulated in the media as to the circumstances surrounding their deaths.

 

We are shocked and think it's irresponsible that police sources have reportedly advised the media of a theory which neither their family, their friends nor their colleagues believe to be true. The Shermans were among Canada's most generous philanthropists.

Indeed, the Sherman’s gifts included multimillion-dollar donations to hospitals, schools and charities and had buildings named in their honor. They also gave generously to Jewish organizations.

They even hosted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for a Liberal party fundraiser in 2015. In a statement released yesterday, Trudeau said he and his wife were “saddened” by the Sherman’s deaths, and offered “our condolences” to their friends and family.

Sherman founded generic drugmaker Apotex in 1974, and helped nurture it into a giant with 11,000 employees world-wide, including more than 6,000 in Canada.

The company released a statement on Saturday praising Sherman’s philanthropic efforts and what it described as his vision for health care.

Patients around the world live healthier and more fulfilled lives thanks to his life's work, and his significant impact on health care and health care sustainability will have an enduring impact for many years to come, the statement read.  

However, as the Daily Mail points out, not everybody harbored warm sentiments toward the Shermans. Indeed, Barry faced legal action from family members alleging they had been cut out of the company over the years.

Barry Sherman was ranked 363 on Forbes richest people in the world list; the publication put his net worth at $3.7 billion, ranking him just above eBay billionaire Jeffrey Skoll. He was believed to be the 5th richest person in Canada.

“They were extremely successful in business, but also very, very giving people,” former Ontario Premier Bob Rae told CBC. “It’s going to be a very, very big loss.”

The Shermans recently listed their home for sale for nearly C$7 million ($5.4 million). A real estate agent discovered the bodies in the basement while preparing for an open house.

 I would look at their financial situation, especially regarding this lawsuit about inheritance they were about to get served with. If they put their house for sale that means either they needed cash or they needed to disappear. Indeed disappearing they have.  It looks odd for billionaires to sell a house that was only valued a couple of millions. What's the deal here? Were their other assets illiquid and without any actual value? Were they on the brink of being officially ruined?

Here is a Clinton Foundation connection.

"Mr. Sherman was one of the most powerful and highly-connected men in North America and was perhaps most well-known for securing a deal with the Clinton Foundation during to provide vaccines in Haiti.In September 2014, in response to the spread of the chikungunya virus in Haiti, Apotex worked with the humanitarian organization Direct Relief to donate more than $2.2 million in medical aid to the country.Apotex struck a deal with the Clintons' Direct Relief organization to provide drugs to treat victims of the virus, saying in a statement: "Apotex is in a position to help (in Haiti), and we are delighted to work with Direct Relief..."

@shitshitshit<< It looks odd for billionaires to sell a house that was only valued a couple of millions. What's the deal here?>>True dat.Most Billionaires I know have bodyguards 24/7 inside and out.Even folks I know with a mere $20 and living in a $10 million house have 24/7 police on duty.Even a poor nobody like meeself has two killer Dobermans watching over me.Definitely not a murder-suicide imho.In general, police are fairly incompetent(or ordered to look the other way) with most of these crimes esp if they involve impotent peeples. Look at senator Percy's daughter who was slaughtere din her bedroom right next to the parents, while her mother watched!And Seth Rich...And Peter Smith .......and so on....

Mrs. Sherman has a personal trainer who showed up at the residence a few hours after the news came out.  He was distraught!!!  I smell a love affair between Candy Sherman and a golddigger trainer.  Barry did some math and realized he'd lose half his wealth to his wife and decided to kill her instead!!!  The old lady was 70 and felt she still had a good pussy since a younger personal trainer was screwing her!   What Candy didn't realize is her money smelled better than her old pussy!  This is my hunch.......

Pharma companies are mostly slush fund units that are given a wink and a nod to produce placebo's to funnel capital for other projects.  Might want to examine the success rate of them actually producing a drug by jackpotting molecular combinations.  When people imagine these places full of people in lab coats studying things, most of the times it's a computer running models of naturally occuring substances to make sure they have established IP legal entitlements.  Sadly most of the drugs they produce are fatal/worthless and tend to get turfe.  The day trader Tim Sykes has some interesting things to say about the entire industry (profit.ly) since most of his trades involve shorting the shit out of the phrama industry stocks.  He knows and all his acolytes know that the entire phrama industry is a scam and profit well from it.

I have not read all the details but it says they ponied up a $2.2 million donation for Haiti then also provided some vaccine for a weaponized virus?

So how did all this Haiti earthquake BS and the Clinton Foundation slush fund work? This is just speculation.

Clintons went around asking billionaires and govts for donations so they could get in on the action. This lovely couple, who may have killed relatives to gain control of the company, sign up.

I cheked and Haiti did supposedly have an earthquake 200 year ago but this 7.0 in 2010 sounds suspicious. Can we say HAARP. Anyway, the earthquake happens. This lovely couple pony up $2.2 million.

C*$IA$ stooges Clinton and bush raise $54 million (Chicken feed) to help Haiti.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinton_Bush_Haiti_Fund

Holy shit! $13 billion was raised globally to rebuild Hait after the earthquake. Huge amount of money for the "skim."
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/investigations/what-does-haiti-have-show-1…

Someone introduces this weaponized virus and this Canadian pharma company provides a vaccine. Hmmm... How much did they make off their $2.2 million investment?

Out of the $13 billion under 300 houses were built in Haiti as of 2015. Sickening.

So this Canadian tribe couple knew a LOT about what happened in Haiti and with the Clinton Foundation. Hillary loses and people start wondering if there will ever be justice. Loose lips sink ships and they were trying to sell their house so something might have been up.

Sounds like loose threads are being taken care of. How much did the Clintons skim from the Haiti earthquake? $200 million? $500 million? Were any Haitian orphans abducted for body parts or slavery or for Pizza with Podeasta?

The howling and Russia Gate and all this smokescreen bullshit is to protect the Clintons. Mueller's real job is to protect the Clintons and Clinton Foundation.

Speaking of charity skims, Bob Geldoff, got rich and a knighthood off Live Aid and Live 8 but very little money got to the needy. How did Bob get so rich? Bob's grandma was tribe so Bob is tribe.

Sort of change of subject.  Did you see the CNN show with Joe Biden going to comfort Meghan McCain.  If McCain wasn't so in the MIC pocket for making war everywhere, there might be more money for cancer research.  Maybe Big pharma doesn't want a quick cure. My late wife got Avastin with chemo trying to stop her brain tumor. Didn't work. Avastin was not the silver bullet everyone thought but god was it expensive.

Cancer research? What a joke. Chemo, might as well drink poison. Big Pharm only looks for way to keep the sheeple coming back for more with false offers of hope. What keeps the spigots of cash open is customers, not cures. Health care costs could be 1/4 of what they are today without their crap, instead it's built into a system where the costs are controlled by conspiracy. It's a fraud, vaccines are the worst, oh and you can directly introduce any agent into anyones blood stream.  Imagine a product that every person must buy, over and over again. The spice must flow!

Maybe, since few people get that form of cancer, it is not profitable for Big Pharma. I saw a little of that show. The private lives of politicians are focused on more than serious political issues, but in the case of cancer and things like that, it is very sad. I do not share the belief that McCain is responsible for every war that has backfired on the US, anyway, and that is one thing Trump is right about: Other countries are not sharing in the cost for their defense, leaving them with more money for things like medical care. The USA also foots the bill for their drug costs via financing the expensive pharma research.
