Ooo, this kind of thing has always interested me. I've always heard that Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands (probably the entire gloomy Pacific Northwest) region is a hotbed of paranormal activity.
The only spot I know to be (famously) haunted is Beban House; it's even been on several shows,...
Forgive the all-over-the-map aspects to this post, but I'm looking for a lot of high-level, general information, to assuage my husband's many concerns about the possibility of moving to Nanaimo (this is all an intellectual exercise right now, as I have applied for a position with VIU...

Can anyone recommend a company in Nanaimo that can replace our furnace oil tank?
We had one guy come over to look already, and he was nuts, very unprofessional and half out of it to boot.

We live in the Lost Lake area. I recently was walking in the area near our house and stumbled across an animal enclosure railing. I understand that there was a zoo in this area and I was interested in getting...
I'm wondering if anyone knows the whereabouts of any abandoned or derelict buildings in the Nanaimo area. Preferably big old industrial buildings. But even old collapsing barns are fine.
I'm looking to do a little Urban Exploration and photography but don't know of any good...

I got charged $10.99 on a $6.17 prescription yesterday and I think that is ridiculousness!!!
I realize I am taking a risk by asking this question. Stan the Man may put me on his "ignore list." The moderators may choose to permanently banish me from the forum. My hotel room may not get cleaned when I visit this summer.
But ask I must. Is there any establishment in your fair city that...
I will be visiting Nanaimo this summer (introductory post here) and would like to view some of the local newspapers from the early 1900s. Is there a library or other institution that has newspapers on microfilm available to the public?

I have so many questions I don't even know where to begin. Do any/many of the schools in Nanaimo have before and after school care? What is a typical charge for after school care? What are the going rates for 4yr olds in Daycares? Is there a pre-school program my 4yr old can join? In my son's...
