A legend leaves a legacy

We were sad to learn that Leonard Lee, founder of Lee Valley Tools, recently passed away

The one-time bureaucratic left the security of a government job to become an entrepreneur: selling cast-iron stove kits by mail! While that might not sound like a great idea, his company eventually grew to include retail outlets across Canada, websites servicing the U.S. and international markets, an in-house tool R&D company, book publishing, and more.
