f (#5, 2016) FOUNDER & DIRECTOR, RENNIE GROUP
The Collector Bob Rennie’s departure from his role as chief fundraiser for the BC Liberals four months before the election marked an end of an era: in the past four years, the party raised a $32-million chest under him. Out of politics, he’s poured his resources into less controversial endeavours: art and philanthropy, donating $12 million dollars’ worth of art in 2017 to the National Gallery of Canada. Rennie, however, hasn’t entirely strayed from the political spotlight. At the height of the debate of 105 Keefer Street, Rennie was a vocal supporter of the project, even lending his voice in favour of it before city council.
