For three generations, the happy family image of McCain Foods dominated the freezer sections in supermarkets across Canada. But this die-hard Liberal family, known for its philanthropy, veiled the operation of its multibillion-dollar empire from the public. Then Harrison and Wallace McCain's corporate succession battle hit the headlines and escalated into a takeover bid ending in the final dramatic ouster of brother Wallace.
How could two brothers, inseparable since childhood, who together built a worldwide corporation, tear apart a close-knit family in a ruthless bid for power? Family Ties draws on brothers, family members, friends, and associates to piece together the history of the McCains and their amazing company. It is a chronicle of brilliance, envy, obsession, and the darker side of ambition.
