Canada's Billionaire: Michael Lee-Chin

Hi Lisa and Canadian Researchers:

A recent article in the New York Times featured a story about Jamaican born billionaire and philanthropist, Michael Lee-Chin.

A recent press release from the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) reads:

"Michael Lee-Chin Crystal Opening Announced to International Media in New York

ROM Director William Thorsell, architect Daniel Libeskind and lead donor Michael Lee-Chin present new ROM"

The main link below will take you the Royal Ontario Museum. Please scroll down to the title:

Michael Lee-Chin Crystal Galleries: Opening Soon

I was intrigued by Mr. Lee-Chin's philanthropy to the Fine Arts and very proud that the centerpiece of the museum is named in his honor.

Directly below are links to his a biography, listing in Forbes etc:

Enjoy reading about a wonderful Canadian success story and a man dedicated to supporting the Fine Arts.
