Description:
Toronto: Key Porter Books, 1993. Born in the tiny community of Bouctouche, New Brunswick K.C. Irving became a billionaire in one of Canada's poorest provinces and although he was one of the world's most successful entrepreneurs, few people outside the Atlantic provinces knew his name. His holdings ranged from vast forest operations, Canada's largest oil refinery, service stations and convenience stores to pulp, paper and newsprint mills, Canada's busiest shipyard, fleets of ships, international trucking systems, newspapers, radio and television stations and much more. In "K.C." the authors give the reader the first inside look at the life and work of Canada's most private billionaire. In this unforgettable portrait of the man who changed the face and future of a province, Irving emerges as a fascinating, difficult, brilliant and complex man. 400 pp includes index. Illustrated with b/w photos. A clean bright book in a bright price-clipped dust jacket.. First Edition,… Read more
