Jane and Finch, the movie 

It’s the story of a single mother and a reformed drug dealer, inspired by Toronto’s notorious intersection Jane and Finch.

The Juliette behind chocolate restaurants Juliette et Chocolat 

Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a box of chocolates and it’s probably safe to say there are few people in Montreal who like chocolate more than Juliette Brun.

Brun is the founder of the popular chocolate-themed restaurants, Juliette et Chocolat.

Of French origin, Brun was born in Brazil but grew up in Washington.

She moved to Montreal 20 years ago to study commerce at McGill University.

She grew up with a sweet tooth and decided to parlay that love for chocolate into a career.

Global’s Amanda Jelowicki sat down with her.
