Photos: Sudbury's Jay Lane teams up with famed medium James Van Praagh

The two spirit mediums are on a five-city Ontario tour

In case you haven't heard, the Nickel City has its own rising star in the world of spirit mediums, you know those folks like "Long Island Medium" Teresa Caputo who many people believe can speak with the dead.

That was the case at the Fraser Auditorium on Sept. 20 when Sudbury's own Jay Lane and famed spirit medium James Van Praagh welcomed a few hundred people, all hoping to make contact with the other side.

You might recognize Van Praagh. For a time in the early 2000s he had his own prime-time TV show and was a frequent guest on daytime talk shows like Oprah, Larry King Live and Dr. Phil. 

Lane has been plying her mysterious trade for past few years and is described in press material as "Canada's rising star psychic medium." She hosts weekly Facebook chats with her fans and has been a guest on TV and radio, most notably an appearance on CNN Headline News.
