'Haunt investigator' hopes to scare up local interest in the paranormal

LISA-ANNE PILKEY

Cameron Bagg not only believes in ghosts, he has personal experience.

The 'haunt investigator' will be at the Collingwood Public Library on Oct. 22 to talk about how to conduct your own paranormal investigation.

Bagg's first experience with ghosts was in his own apartment in 1988. After he solved his ghost mystery in 1990, he founded the Haunt Club, where he investigates and solves ghost mysteries in Ontario.

Bagg has some new and very revolutionary ideas about ghosts.

"It's all about energy," said Bagg. "Ghosts are a form of quantum energy. In fact, when you think about reported ghost behaviours... quantum energy makes sense."

After he solved his own ghost issue, he do research on the paranormal, and attended workshops to learn even more.

Since then he has become quite famous as the "guy who could help you with a ghost problem." He has assisted businesses and families collect information about their haunted buildings and better know their ghosts. For the last 20 years, he has studied the behaviour of these ghosts and organized these paranormal occurrences into three categories: Ghost, the energy imprint of emotion, and spirit.

In 2006, he began holding workshops and community lectures in Toronto. He says he's had amazing feedback, and now does lectures across Ontario. He says his lecture, 'An Inconvenient Ghost', is one of the most informative lectures out there on ghosts.

The lecture is for all ages; however, he recommends the subject matter may not be appropriate for young children. He hopes a lot of teens and older kids come out.

"I look forward to meeting skeptics, believers and seekers," he said.

The lecture starts at 7 p. m., and is approximately 90 minutes; however, Bagg says he's been known to talk for hours on the subject -- so it may go a little longer than expected.

Bagg hopes to meet with people in the area who want or need help with their haunting at home or in the workplace. He does not charge for his services.

"Ghosts are an inconvenience, not only to people who share a home with them, but to science, education, religion, history, the legal system, etc... and I'm going to try and make sense out of it all in an hour and a half," he said.

Bagg will be selling a 50-minute DVD with instructions on how to conduct your own haunt investigation; it also has bonus features that include unseen photos and unheard audio from the Haunt Club files. The cost of the dvd is $12.

Seating for the Oct. 22 presentation is limited. For more information, call the library at 445-1571.

Anyone wanting to contact Bagg prior to his presentation can email him at thehauntclub@cogeco.ca.
