"Rented an apartment at Birchmount and St. Clair for 3 yrs. On several occasions myself, my husband and 2 young children experienced lights turned off and on after one of us had just adjusted them, as well as having random electronic toys move independently when no one was in the room.
Once I was home alone and I saw my sons electric toy car come across the floor in front of me. The remote was no where to be seen. It moved back and forth a number of times before I finally turned it off. I searched for the remote and finally found it in the kids room, in the closet on the floor, with no battery power.
The final incident and most disturbing was the night the propane plant blew up in North York. I awoke to a bang against the outside balcony door from the pressure of the blast. I wasn't sure what was going on at that time. My husband was away that night so I was sleeping on the couch in the living room with the kids on the pullout futon. After I got my bearings, I suddenly noticed CLEARLY a dark shadow-like outline of a human figure, a tall, male with a short top hat on pass by the outside of our balcony. The shadow moved slowly and was outlined against our curtain. I thought someone had climbed over our balcony and I panicked. I went over to the balcony immediately with a hockey stick in hand. Opened up the curtain and no one was there. I opened the door with caution and went outside and no one was in the parking lot or anywhere in the area. I was very disturbed at this point. I moved the hockey stick across the outside of the curtain on the balcony to try and determine how close the person must have been for me to see the shadow so clearly. The stick did not make any shadow outline at all on the inside of the unit. I was dumbfounded. Finally, I walked across the curtain from the inside of my unit myself fairly close to the window/curtain and that is when I saw my own shadow outline on the curtain. THAT TERRIFIED me. The shadow came from within the unit. We moved out 2 months later."
