Toronto, May 25, 2012 – Magic Lantern Media Inc. completes the acquisition of an 80% controlling interest in Jobs People Do Inc. The JobsPeopleDo.com web site is a media‐rich site that is used by thousands of students, parents and guidance counsellors across Canada.

With over 900 Job Videos and profiles, JobsPeopleDo.com will assist students in making career choices and helping them plan their path in achieving those careers.
