He eventually returned, to politics and eventually his home on Bond Street. He died there but might have never left (ghost stories on Toronto Centre).

20 years of ghosts and a tradition has formed inside Old City Hall. Toronto reporters want to spend Halloween night inside Courtroom 33.
Location of many of histories most interesting trials now had a unique energy.
A reporter and her sister sign up one Halloween. They go in skeptical, not expecting much. Then right from the start they’re plagued by noises from a dark and empty hallway.
They’d hear footsteps in the hallway. Then running out to see no one. And a door slams down the hall.
A couple hours later and the women are huddled in a corner unable to sleep. Then at 3am, the witching hour, they saw “a cool fog” roll into the courtroom. Standing to back away, they found it hard to move. Like their feet were stuck to the floor.
That was enough and the women went home.

Joe was a former attendant what today’s Fracture Clinic. But back in his time it was the morgue.
Joe loved his job, kept it for many decades and when turning 80 years old the hospital forced him to retire. He didn’t want to leave but they were afraid Joe would fall dead while cleaning a hallway. And then one day Joe grabs his chest and falls dead in a hallway. But he got his wish… Joe didn’t leave.
A few years ago, a worker stays late to finish some charts in that Fracture Clinic. Knowing he’s alone and there’s a noise from the end of hall. Sounds like a man laughing in the distance.
The worker shakes it off, “I’m just tired” and keeps going. Then a cold breeze comes into the room.
A beep from the hall, the worker peaks his head out to see a crash-cart computer came on. Then more beeps as all the computers in the nursing station turn on. And at the end of the hallway is the shadow of a man surrounded by fog.
That was enough, he runs, down the stairs and out to Queen Street. The door closes before realizing he didn’t have the key-card. He was locked out.
The worker knew his bosses would think him crazy if coming in to all the lights and computers on. He had to go back in.
Gets the security guard and they walk back. What he found was so surprising…
