She is currently producing a couple of television documentaries, teaching prenatal classes and acting as a doula, producing a weekly radio show on health and writing a column for the Montreal Gazette.
Janet’s work philosophy: if you know how to do enough different things, there will always be work. At various other times in her life, she’s been a radio talk-show host, traffic reporter, journalist, author, freelance writer, manager of construction companies (and carpenter), Media consultant, Public Relations officer, and co-founder, in 1973, of the first Rape Relief Centre in Canada.
Janet’s next major project will be Radical Resthomes, a concept she and her friends have created to allow them to grow old together and with dignity. She’d start it now, but everyone’s too busy and the idea of moving in with others is still a few (but not many) years away.
If she has any extra time, she does renovations on her home, sews clothes for her new granddaughter, watches crime shows on TV and continues the daily battle of teaching her dog, Toby Torge, who’s boss.
