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.

FROM SPANISH TOWN TO BTOWN

Ricardo Brown was in his early-20’s, when a man pulled up at his house looking for him. This was never a good sign in Spanish Town, the violent part of Jamaica Ricardo grew up in. Although the now-32-year-old heavyweight boxer is an intimidating 6’7” (he earned the nickname “Big 12,” as an already-tall twelve-year-old dancehall dancer,) he is soft-spoken, and radiates gentleness.

EMPOWERING EMPLOYEES

When Hilary Marcotte was a young girl, her father would line up her and her sister and proclaim, “Repeat after me: I am somebody and I can do anything!” The idea of not being able to do something was not on Hilary’s radar. Now Hilary, along with her husband Graham Marcotte, owns and operates her father’s business, Grand River Power Sports, and has created a workplace environment where others can thrive and be empowered.

THE COMIC BOOK DREAM

It’s a cold, dark night. The clouds cover the stars and the weather threatens a winter storm. BTOWN arrives at top secret coordinates in Brantford – the private lab of Thadeus Zebroski. We are welcomed into the space where only five people have ever entered. This secret location is responsible for highly sought-after gems. Gems that take the form of comic books.
