St. Paul’s Hospital was founded in 1894 and was named after French bishop Paul Durieu of New Westminster.

  1. 3 years of working in house security in the late 1990s. Too many experiences to mention in detail but the 5th floor of the Comox building (North West side) is where the hair on my neck stood up more times than I care to remember. That corner is right below the 6th floor where the nuns used to live which at the time had been abandoned (empty) for over 18 years. Everything from doors rattling like they are coming off the hinges to unexplained voices and many other experiences, we all had them there.
