Poll: Kingston, Ontario Called 'a Conductor for Paranormal Activity!'

Banff, Montreal and Victoria are Home to Canada's Spookiest "Haunts"

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - As Canadians celebrate all that is gory and chocolate this Halloween week, FlightNetwork.com asked travelers about their spookiest, scariest travel opinions in its most recent air travel poll.

Perhaps the scariest finding of all is that a majority of respondents - 57.3% - said they believe in ghosts, versus 42.7% of skeptics. Regardless of belief in the phantasmal, Canadians are either really fearless or really foolish; when asked what they would do if they saw a ghost, 38.5% of respondents say they would try to engage it in conversation, while another 27.4% would try to snap a photo. Only a third of respondents (33.8%) said they would run or hide.

Asked about the country's most dastardly destinations, the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Alberta earned top honours with 29.6%. Old Montreal came second with 20.9%, followed closely by Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia with 20.1%.

While respondents were given a list to choose from, the poll garnered some additional macabre mentions, including the Keg Mansion in Toronto and Crowsnest Pass, Alberta. One particularly knowledgeable respondent informed us that the entire city of Kingston, Ontario, 'is built on limestone and is a conductor for paranormal activity.'
