Hi everyone,

I'm a reporter for the Toronto Star, and I'm very interested in writing a story about Ghost Towns of the GTA. If anyone is in and around the area (let's say within a 45 minute drive of Toronto) please shoot me an email at rlevinson@thestar.ca. Also, any ideas of sites can be submitted below this post.

Thanks a ton! I hope I get to speak to some of you.

Sure wish I could help you out.I don't know anything about the greater Toronto area.I have been to Canada years ago.My late father was a ChiefMaster Sargent in the US AirForce, and he got stationed to the Alaskan Air Command at Elmendorf AFB near Anchorage.We drove the Alaskan Highway through Canada,but as you know,that area is quite aways from your location.I did once see a website on Canadian ghost towns, but can't recall the web address.
You might go and Google your province and say Ontario ghost towns,and see what you come up with.Maybe some Canadian ghost towners here might help you out.However,not sure how often they post.Now if you were looking for Texas ghost towns near San Antonio,THAT I could help you with.
