DON’T SAY THERE’S NOTHING TO DO IN BRANTFORD

For long-time locals, the name “Jamie Stephens” is synonymous with Brantford – for the past 14 years, he has had a hand in bringing a variety of entertaining experiences here and radiates pride for his city. That’s why it’s surprising to learn that the community-builder, whose Facebook URL is “Mr. Brantford,” didn’t always love his hometown. “Truthfully, when it came time to go to college, I purposely picked the furthest place away from Brantford, because I just did not like being here,” he says, which landed him in Sault Ste. Marie.
