Ghost stories from across Canada

Be afraid, Canada. Be very afraid. You can't escape the things that go bump after dark. There's hardly a community in this country that doesn't have a ghost story to tell.

The mystery of room 873 is perhaps the most captivating. A family was reportedly murdered in this room, and though walls have been built over where the doorway once was, guests still report seeing ghosts of the family. Another rumour is that of the bride who fell down a staircase and broke her neck. The staircase is blocked off, but guests still report seeing a woman wandering the halls in a wedding dress.
