Vindication: For the better part of a decade, doughnut magnate Ronald Joyce was dogged by allegations he'd taken control of the Tim Hortons empire through a dishonest deal when he bought the late hockey player's share of the company from his widow for $1 million in 1975. But in 1995, the Ontario Court of Appeals settled the matter once and for all, upholding an earlier ruling that deemed Joyce had "dealt fairly, reasonably and honestly with Mrs. Horton."
