A couple of our wealthiest Montrealers happen to have daughters with fledgling singing careers and your job is to vote which of the prosperous pop princesses is the better.
First there's Jessika Bertrand, daughter of Vic Bertrand, whose parents started what's now Mega Brands, in 1967. The company makes little Lego-style toys and other such children's stuff in a plant in LaSalle (I met a guy who works there, said it's crazy hard work). The company has hundreds of millions of dollars worth annual sales are considered one of the city's larger business stories. The Bertrand's extravagant Beaconsfield mansion is on the block now too by the way.
Then there's Chloe Stroll - daughter of Lawrence Stroll, 53, son of Leo Strulovitch, who is a new addition to the Forbes list. He made about $1.8 billion in various fashion endeavors including ownership stakes in Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger. Stroll's other child, a son, likes to race cars, as he does himself at his own Tremblant racetrack. They have a variety of homes in such places as Westmount, Mount Tremblant, Switzerland and London.
