February 24, 2019 Sunday to February 26, 2019 Tuesday. Deanna Jaxine Stinson and I flew on United Airlines 1781 – departing Sacramento and with a layover in Denver, CO. Gina de la Rosa a former HPI Paranormal Investigator is watching my car and drove Deanna and I, to the Sacramento International Airport. Gina will be picking us up from this trip. My neighbor Gregory James will bring over his dog AJ to watch over Hannah. Gregory is a great neighbor and will walk both dogs – AJ and Hannah during our absence. Out of Denver, flew on United Airlines 2026 into Toronto, ON (YYZ) Canada. Pie-in-the-Sky Studios sent over a limousine to pick Deanna and I, up from the Toronto International Airport. When the plane was landing in Toronto, it was very intense, high turbulence and lightning hit the wing tip of the plane.
The reason why Deanna and I were in Toronto is to film for Haunted Hospitals which will air on the T&E (Travel & Escape Channel) and the Travel Channel. Our limo brought us to the Bond Place Hotel (65 Dundas St E. Toronto, ON M5B2G8) in downtown Ontario. Our room is Room 1005. Some of the things we saw in Toronto was the CF Toronto Eaton Centre Mall with over 250 shops. One of the largest malls in the world. Of course we saw the CN Tower, very impressive and we saw their famous China Town. Monday was filming day and we had our call sheets in hand. The filming lasted all afternoon and into the evening, it was a blast and we were working with very professional people. Here are some of the highlights of our trip. While flying back on Delta Airlines, I was able to watch for free the following movies: Papillon; Overlord; Johnny English Strikes Again. At the Toronto International Airport there was a airport security guard woman looking at our passports and she was very rude and basically insulted us because we were Americans, I believe her name was Killium – she needs to be reprimanded, the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Below are details on our flight home:
Going back home, our plane flew us over Niagra Falls. From the air, Toronto at night is very spectacular to look at from the air and Niagra Falls is very majestic to see from the air. In the studio, Deanna picked up on some little children ghosts running around the studio and she also picked up on a couple of teenager ghosts at the studio. While at the hotel, Deanna picked up on a male spirit and it communicated “fire” to her. Later on, an employee of the hotel mentioned that there was once a fire in one of the rooms of the hotel. Leaving our hotel on Tuesday, I used my Canadian dollars and spent $25.00 at the hotel restaurant for a nice breakfast for me and Deanna.
INVESTIGATION: CASA LOMA
Casa Loma – 1 Austin Terrance. The Casa Loma is a Gothic Revival styled mansion. The mansion has secret passageways and one amazing room after another. The mansion was constructed from 1911 to 1914. Walking into this place, you can feel the history buried in its walls. Deanna not knowing anything about this mansion picked up on people swing dancing on the dance floor. Looking at the history of this mansion, The Orange Blossoms performed here for many years and swing dancers danced to The Orange Blossoms music. This mansion is so incredible, that many movies and TV shows were filmed here, from X-Men to Strange Brew to Warehouse 13 to Goosebumps to Harry Potter. In fact this mansion is the stand in for Wayne Manor of Batman fame. In 1911 financier Sir Henry Pellatt had a vision of this great mansion and started constructing the mansion with the help of architect E.J. Lennox. I did some EVP sessions on the outside perimeters of this mansion and captured one EVP in which a male disembodied voice says: “she’s my lassy!” As I was walking near one of the bedrooms, I felt a slight breeze go past me. I believe I felt the presence of a ghost. I must say, I didn’t get much evidence at this mansion, but I know in my heart that this place is haunted.
