    the Nova Scotia Rampage - Part 5 - Connecting Dots (with Paul Palango)

    Nova Scotia, April 18-19, 2020

    Over a period of thirteen hours, a 51 year old denturist carried out Canada’s most deadly act of mass murder.

    Dressed in a police officer’s uniform and driving a replica police cruiser, this murderer would leave a trail of innocent victims and burnt homes in his wake. In total twenty two Nova Scotians lost their lives including a pregnant woman, a RCMP Constable, and many other innocent victims who were unfortunate enough to cross his path.

    In this episode of Nighttime, we are going to be joined by the controversial Investigative Journalist Paul Palango. Our topic is how his work has helped changed the public narrative surrounding the Nova Scotia Mass Shooting and Arson rampage.

    a Visit to the Haunted Mansion in Kensington, PEI

    a Visit to the Haunted Mansion in Kensington, PEI

    The Haunted Mansion is a unique haunted house attraction found in Kensington, PEI.

    What makes the haunted mansion so special is both the over one hundred year old tudor style building it calls home and the passionate owner who’s wit, ingenuity, and creativity bring the tour to life.

    Unlike many similar road side attractions, the haunted mansion favors home-made equipment over the lesser inspired store bought varieties. The end result is a one of a kind tour through a one of a kind building.

    In this episode of Nighttime we are going to get a behind the scenes tour of the Haunted Mansion from John Davison, the owner and creative force behind the Haunted Mansion.

Haunted Mansion

Omg hahahahaha I was so excited to see this episode!!!! I used to take my 2 now adult sons to PEI every summer when they were little. I’ll never forget the first time we went and they were both scared and excited. This episode makes me think I should try to drag them back for a day trip now that they are adults and see if we all have as many scares. Thank you for the awesome memories!!

Nova Scotia Part 5

Love the show and would give a 5 stars... but Nova Scotia Part 5.... oh boy. Maybe it's because I didn't have my tin foil hat on... who knows.
