Rockland will proudly welcome the arrival of the new season in company of Maripier Morin and Brandon Prust as its ambassadors, and vice versa. This will undoubtedly be the perfect opportunity for one of Montreal's favourite couples to present the best of what our dear city has to offer, on every aspect. To see the images of our new spring/summer 2019 campaign:
Maripier Morin continues her meteoric ascension in the Canadian media landscape. Her rich and diversified career is catching the interest of a growing audience, now more than ever. It's through her genuine spontaneity, her dynamic energy and her impeccable style that Maripier Morin has quickly risen to an enviable star status in the artistic community.
As she nears her thirties, Maripier can be proud to have been at the helm of several variety shows on renowned television networks, which enabled her to hone her natural hosting talents. Recently, she has made her mark in the children's media landscape in "Code F", and by playing a coaching role for young participants in the popular show "La Voix Junior". Recently married to professional hockey player Brandon Prust, Maripier was chosen to add colour to the group of women starring on Hockey Wives, a reality TV show on W Network. It seems that obstacles are falling away one by one through sheer determination, which aligns happily with her ambition of becoming a renowned pan-Canadian host on an English-speaking network.
In the fall of 2017, she strengthened her influence by creating her own web platform at maripiermorin.com, where she can express herself freely and produce her own shows. People like Maripier because she's relatable and down-to-earth; her frank, genuine sense of humour makes her that much more endearing. She displays a true passion for music, cinema and the arts in general. She is a true "woman of the world"!
In addition, Maripier started her acting career by starring in the most recent movie by Oscar-winner director Denys Arcand, where she had the leading role. Maripier is undoubtedly one of Quebec's biggest rising stars, whose promising future will be most interesting to follow!
A former left winger, Brandon Prust played for the National Hockey League for twelve years, from 2005 to 2017, including for the Calgary Flames, the New York Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens. It was during his years with the Montreal Canadiens that Brandon became one of Montreal's favourite players.
Through his marriage to Maripier Morin, one of Quebec's prominent television personalities, Brandon has always been very active in the media landscape, joining several television projects. For three seasons, he played alongside his fiancée in Hockey Wives, a docu-series that follows the life of a group of wives and girlfriends of professional hockey players. Since that time, he wed Maripier… twice – once in July 2017 in London, Ontario; and a second time, in August 2018, in Pohénégamook, Quebec. For both these events, Brandon starred, alongside his wife, in the "Our first wedding" and "Our second wedding" web series broadcast exclusively on Maripier's online platform, maripiermorin.com.
Brandon also made a noticeable cameo in Denys Arcand's film "The Fall of the American Empire". The now-retired hockey player is still passionate about his sport; in 2017, Brandon became coach for the London Knights, the junior hockey team in his hometown of London, Ontario. A year later, he announced that he was starting a new career with Navigator Financial, a financial management consulting firm that supports top performers in business and sports.
