Narf! Point! Egad!

Warm-up for Hallowe'en...

Two days ago, I was getting ready for the Restore the Norm Theatre gala *at the movie theatre where I volunteer* when the oddness happened. I was standing just off to the front and side of a free-standing mirror. As I fussed with the windsor knot on my tie, I saw someone walk past in the mirror. I looked over to where the person should of been and of course, no one was there.

The interesting thing was that where I was standing in relation to the mirror, I couldn't see the doorway in the reflection and I was the only person at home.

Haunted walking tour

Mark and I and some friends all went on a Haunted walking tour on thr grounds of thr Burnaby Museum. These are the pics I took at Ceperley House.. The red room was really the only place I felt a little "out of sorts". Not uncomfortable, just..not right

That orangish pic is of the fireplace in the main dining room of the house. My camera setting was on auto, so I have no idea where the colouring came from, nor where all that foggy stuff is from! 0_o

Though I'm not a huge believer of the whole "orbs" phenomena, I have to admit, these things are pretty friggen weird :P

Haunted Canada: Vancouver

There are many delightful things to enjoy when visiting the destination of Vancouver, Canada, such as a host of beautiful skylines, Edwardian architecture and a deep history. Not only is this the third largest city that you will find throughout Canada, but it also serves as home to numerous ghost tales and strange occurrences.

When visiting the British Columbia Regiment, which is also the Beatty Street Armory area, you may not want to be in the vicinity during the night. There are a variety of sounds that you may encounter during a visit. Things have been known to fall from the walls and shelves, as well as books. Some have spotted the image of a man, who has roamed about various areas, such as the Officer’s Messes. Unexplainable footsteps have also been encountered at this location.

In Gastown, you will find the Old Spaghetti Factory, which is considered to be one of the most haunted restaurants that can be found in the area. It can be located close to an old trolley car, displaying an array of odd events. Reports have surfaced from some of the workers that a ghost had been spotted sitting in the trolley car. Some claim that they have even heard the ghost call out their names.

When looking for a place to stay, you may either avoid or welcome the haunted Hotel Vancouver. The main ghostly resident is a woman, who appears in red. She can be seen “gliding” through the hallways of the hotel. The elevator also seems to have a mind of its own. It has been known to stop at the 14th floor, where the door will open and the ghost is often encountered.

There is a set of remodeled office buildings that is referred to as Officer’s Row. A variety of paranormal activity has been reported to occur at this site. Unexplainable footsteps, cold spots, as well as touching from unknown entities have been known to happen. Another odd occurrence that has been documented is the strange ringing of telephones that aren’t even plugged into the phone jack. Dating back to 1927, the Orpheum is another haunted location within Vancouver. The ghost of an acrobat is known to haunt the premises. He lost his life while performing part of his vaudeville act.

At the Vogue Theater, the history of this site can be found dating back to the early 1940s. The locals believe that at least one ghost haunts this location. Those that work there have reported to hear weird noises, as well as unexplainable footsteps. The apparition of a man, who is dressed in a white tuxedo and black bow tie, has been spotted. A performer has even spotted the rather tall figure during a performance while they danced on the stage.

The University of British Columbia, located on 16th Avenue West presents a tale that has become the stuff that legends are made of. It starts with an argument that a woman and her boyfriend had, which left her on the side of the road. The weather was rainy and she had no other way of getting back home. The woman began to walk down 16th Ave, attempting to hitchhike. She was hit by a car and instantly killed. A little after her funeral was held, reports began to surface of a young lady who was hitchhiking along the same road. Many have tried to pick her up and help her on her way. Stories that the police have compiled state that if there is more than one person in the car, she will ignore them and keep walking, but if it is only a single male driver, she will accept the ride and hop into the back seat. When the driver attempted to ask her where she was heading, they would receive no answer. When they turned to look at her, they soon discovered that no one was in the back seat.

Haunted Canada: Alberta

Throughout Canada, there are numerous cities that all have a story to tell. Some just have more of a voice than other, like the area of Alberta, where unruly spirits haunts theaters, and schools built upon old burial grounds have unexplainable events occur.

In Edmonton, you will encounter the Walterdale Theater, which originally stood as a fire hall during the 1920s. When the 60s came, it was transformed into a non-profit theater playhouse. While visiting the building, several individuals claim to have met up with ghosts that haunt the premises. They have been seen in the back stairwell, which are frequented by technicians and actors. The ghosts make appearances in the Green Room, as well as are thought to be responsible for the misplacement of props, flickering lights and cold spots.

The Empress Theater at Fort Macleod is the location where a ghost has decided to remain throughout the years. This site is known for the numerous ghostly encounters that occur in both the upstairs and downstairs of the theater. At the Old Movie Theater in Grande Prairie, the site caught on fire and burned while people were still inside. When walking through the theater, you may feel as if you are being watched, as well as hear the faint whispers coming from an unknown source. Footsteps may come and go, sometimes sounding as if they are running away from you. When you look to see who is in the area, you are the only one in the room. The sounds of screams may be heard and a ghost who seems to be on fire appears on occasion.

During the 1940s, the Community Cultural Center in Brooks used to be an old hospital. Many people passed away on the premises, prompting several ghost sighting reports. Some of the ghosts that have been documented include a former janitor, a young boy, as well as 75 other ghostly visitors. Employees have used an Ouija board to communicate with a 9-year-old boy, who makes his fear of the hospital known.

The Calling Lake School can be found close to 2 hours away from Edmonton. The school was constructed upon an old Native American burial ground. Dark shadows have been reported to haunt the site and visitors often feel as if they are being watched by an unknown entity.

Several haunted spots can be found in Edmonton. At Concordia College, it is said that some nights produce the sound of a choir singing through the wall in the boys dormitory. The sounds of slamming doors can also be heard when no one is around to blame. The ghost of a former teacher is thought to roam the halls. Schwarman Hall is also the site of haunted tales. At the John A. McDougall Elementary School, the ghost of a girl has been spotted walking up and down the stairs. Legend has it that she lost her life while sliding down the banister located in the stairwell as someone pushed her off from behind. Unexplainable shadows and cold spots can be encountered when one visits the Old Strathcoa Guilty Martini. Some have even claimed to be touched on their shoulder by an unknown source.

At the Syncrude Towers in Fort McMurray, the third floor is believed to be quite haunted. There are two condominiums on the premises that present an eerie feeling. The sound of a fallen baseball hitting the floor can be heard when entering the first condo. It can be heard during the nighttime when people are on the first floor. The sound comes from up above. A spirit who likes to grab the arms of people as they sleep may haunt the second condo.
