The Con­ver­sa­Tion

Toronto Life - - The Conversation -

“Cheer up! There’s still lots of sil­ver left in that cloud’s lin­ing. It sounds like a loss of about $25 mil­lion from an es­tate of $200 mil­lion, while up­set­ting in how it came about, is not putting the Kamin fam­ily into penury. That loss is equiv­a­lent to the losses in­curred in a bad turn or an av­er­age cor­rec­tion in the stock mar­ket.

“I’d sug­gest the Kamins ap­pre­ci­ate and en­joy the $175 mil­lion they still have, doubtlessly some of it due to Shel­don Carr’s ear­lier ef­forts, stop kvetch­ing, stop talk­ing to ghosts (Jack and Syra both died con­tent) and get on with their still very priv­i­leged lives. As for Carr, he went a bit meshuga and is al­ready pay­ing for his sins.”

—W. E. Hil­dreth, Toronto

And at least one de­fended the ac­coun­tant in ques­tion—or at least felt our ex­posé was pre­ma­ture.

“Bravo, Toronto Life, for un­nec­es­sar­ily evis­cer­at­ing a man’s char­ac­ter based on noth­ing but hearsay and in­con­clu­sive ev­i­dence at this point. Not con­don­ing what could have hap­pened, but why rush this story to print un­til the full/true story comes out or at least a court’s de­ter­mi­na­tion has been made? To­tal tabloid BS. Shame on you.”
