Roz Weston and Galen Weston's relationship draws speculations due to the same surname. But, sometimes, names can be deceiving. 

Both Roz and late Galen are prominent Canadian figures. Roz Weston is a broadcaster, author, and former reporter at ET Canada. In comparison, Galen was a businessman and chairman of Goerge Weston Limited. 

Due to the similarities in their surname "Weston," people sometimes speculate the two might be related - or at least remotely connected. However, this is not entirely true. 

No, Roz Weston is not related to Galen Weston.

Galen is a member of "The Weston Family of Canada." The old-money family has prominence in the food and clothing industry of Canada, Ireland, and England. They have their roots in the United Kingdom.

On the other hand, Roz has never mentioned his connection to the Weston family. The similarity in their surname appears to be just a mere coincidence. 

Nonetheless, both Roz and Galen have established themselves in Canada. In fact, late Galen was a supermarket retailer with interest in the largest food retailer in Canada. He was also a chairman of Selfridges Group.

Likewise, Roz was named among the 50 most beautiful faces of Canada. He even has a street named after him in his hometown in Acton, Ontario.
