Sherman: ruthless tycoon who revolutionized Canada drug industry

Sherman: ruthless tycoon who revolutionized Canada drug industryBarry Sherman drove an old car and gave away tens of millions of dollars to charities while building Apotex into one of Canada’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Sherman fought as many as 100 battles at a time in court to challenge drug patents and make way for Apotex’s generic prescriptions, or to fend off cousins’ claims to the company he founded in 1974. “Barry and Honey were kind, good people who will be greatly missed,” Toronto Mayor John Tory said in comments that typified politicians’ reactions to their death.
