Peter Frederick Bronfman

Peter Frederick Bronfman, a partner in one of Canada’s biggest corporate empires, died Sunday in Toronto of cancer at age 67.

Bronfman and his older brother Edward built their own diverse conglomerate after being cut out of a role in running the huge Seagram Co. Ltd. liquor company founded by their Montreal-based uncle, Samuel.

While Samuel Bronfman’s eldest son, Edgar M. Bronfman, and grandson, Edgar M. Bronfman Jr., carried on as Seagram’s leaders, Peter and Edward founded their own holding company, Edper Investments, in Toronto.

Their acquisitions included leading companies in a wide range of sectors, including John Labatt Ltd., one of Canada’s two biggest brewers, and the Montreal Canadiens hockey team, which they owned from 1971-78.
