New Brunswick

Edmundston is located in northwestern New Brunswick, in Madawaska County. The city was named after a former governor of New Brunswick,  Sir Edmund Walker Head, who visited the Madawaska in 1856.  Before the arrival of the first colonists, the local Natives called this place "Madoueskak", which means “the place of the porcupines”.

In a nearby wooded area (of which there are many such picturesque places in this region) it is rumoured that a Native spirit haunts. The spirit is seen during evening hours only, and is reported to follow or chase those that encounter it.
