The Ghosts of the University of Toronto

A little education can be a ghastly business! The University of Toronto, a centre for academics and higher learning, has more than its own share of urban legends. The architecture and environment of the University certainly lend themselves to some ghostly storytelling. The grounds of the University of Toronto can be spooky indeed. Hear the famous Toronto story about two stonemasons, partners in their craft, but bloodthirsty competitors in love. There's also the tale of the famous Canadian author who vowed to return from the grave to haunt Massey College, and of the biscuit maker who locked his mistress inside a secret chamber. Hear these and many other stories as you explore the Ghosts of the University of Toronto.
