Mike McCardell is Back!


Posted: Friday, November 8, 2013 at 12:19pm

Meet renowned news reporter and author Mike McCardell at a series of book signings for his new book, Haunting Vancouver: A Nearly True History.

Full of McCardell’s unmistakable wit and fascinating archival photos, Haunting Vancouver takes the reader back in time for a rollicking tour of Vancouver’s history. Meet the “gassy” personality of saloon-owner Jack Deighton, learn of the expensive mistake once made by logging entrepreneur Edward Stamp, and go for a paddle with Pauline Johnson as she mulls over the name she should give to her favourite place: Lost Lagoon.

Haunting Vancouver is one of the most laughable, laudable and accessible tellings of Vancouver’s inception and development ever published. And it’s all true… well, almost.
