Communing With the Spirits? Doubt and Belief in Toronto the Good

October 4, 2015 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Even in Toronto the Good, there were those who communed with the spirits by unorthodox means. Travel back one hundred years to a Toronto fascinated by photographs of “ghosts,” the mysterious powers of “radiopathy” emanating from a Bay Street office, and popular performances of mediums at Massey Hall. Stand on the steps of the courts to hear about the people and court trials that sought to uncover and discredit them all.
