Major holdings: Katz Group of Cos.,
After years of owning and operating the Rexall chain of pharmacies in relative silence, Edmonton’s Daryl Katz has emerged as one of the more boisterous business figures in Western Canada, first buying the Edmonton Oilers and now embarking on a massive new real-estate project to house them. The Edmonton Arena District is an ambitious 25-acre condo and office tower development centred around the $480-million Rogers Place arena.
