The country's wealthiest family has dabbled in numerous industries during its storied history and now, thanks to David Thomson, grandson of patriarch Roy, they can add hockey to the list. Thomson is a partner in True North Sports and Entertainment, which this year secured a US$170-million deal to resurrect the Winnipeg Jets. The deal is a personal achievement for Thomson, who also serves as chairman of Thomson Reuters. "The citizens that waved, that smiled, that put their thumbs northward," he told reporters earlier this year, "it made me as proud as I ever have been in my life."
