Do you want to join Jeff Richard's of APTN's The Other Side and investigate the paranormal at one of Canada's last accessible Sanatoriums? Tuberculosis was a huge epidemic in the late 19th century and early 20th century. In response to this epidemic Canada built Sanatoriums country wide. Treatment? bed rest and fresh air. It was coined the "The Rest Cure". In the 1950's with the introduction of antibiotics and vaccines, eventually over the following 20 years made Sanatoriums less needed and they shut down all over the country.
Deaths at the Sanatorium: The exact number is unknown, due to privacy laws and some of the patients still possibly being alive records are not public. What we do know is that at a near by cemetery there is a monument with the names of over 300 people who are believed to be buried there in unmarked graves. It is also thought that on the property there are unmarked graves. Missing aboriginal and Inuit peoples are also reported. Families still to this day look for closure. Accounts have come out in the media about the mistreatment, experimental procedures done on aboriginal youth taken from residential schools. Reports are not validated but the experiences shared of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of the Sanatorium staff are detailed and saddening.
