Update July 2013
After the TURF Festival at Garrison Common/Fort York this past weekend (Sunday July 7th 2013) a group of 4 or 5 people that were working all heard a harsh voice say "one more song" they checked the monitors and speakers to make sure someone wasn't fooling around but everything was unplugged as they were tearing down from the festival, shortly afterwards my husband who was also working the festival was walking across the Garrison Commons field after all the guests had left and he heard a voice go by him as if someone ran past him whispering "never again". It frightened him so badly he has decided to never work there again. All of the people (all grown men) who had heard these voices were visibly shaken and one commented that he "just wanted to get out of there" after his shift because he was "creeped out" by it.
It's obvious to me that this is the work of the fallen soldiers. I had no idea until I researched a bit afterwards that there is a burial ground at Ft York (from what I've read). How heartbreaking to think of a loud music festival tearing up the grounds that these men fought and died on.
The following was sent in to us by an experient in the Fall of 2014...
"This past Summer, I visited Historic Fort York. I was caught up in traffic as the 'ex' (Canadian National Exhibition) was on and I only arrived at Fort York as it was closing. There was an outdoor party being held and as such, I was allowed in for free.
In the fort, I felt extreme danger and sensed many presences. I noticed the smell of gunpowder and rotting flesh. I looked around and saw dying soldiers in red uniforms with limbs broken,bleeding and shot off. There was the sound of moaning and extreme distress. I felt as if I was caught in the middle of a battle. I also smelled ozone from water up close as if there were small waves nearby. Then it suddenly disappeared before me. I believe I was caught in a time slip of some sort and it was very scary."
