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, I think, and it's mentioned in all those tourist books too. Apparently the old place has kids bouncing balls and stuff?
Wouldn't be surprised if some of the mine shafts are haunted, too. Now THAT's creepy.
(...There's something about artifacts from nineteenth century industry; they're always really eerie and sad.)
