Goblins, witches and ghosts will walk the streets tonight for Halloween, but are spirits actually real?

According to a survey by Narrative Research only 27% of Canadians believe they walk among us, while 44% think ghosts are a myth and 30% have not made up their mind.

The survey says women are more likely to believe in ghosts than men, especially those who are younger like Gen Z (37%) and Millennials (35%) who are more likely to believe than Gen X (27%) and Boomers (20%).

Twelve percent say they have had a direct experience with a ghost.
