Appearances and Mentions
- Edna Garrison is young, single woman who objects to the exploitation of animals and a member of the Toronto Humane Society. As a result, she is initially suspected of having been involved in the murder of a young woman who was participating in the demonstration of the "dangers" of alternating current in which a dog was supposed to be killed.
- After a date with George Crabtree, Edna invites George into her room for tea. While there George finds and takes plans for an electrical system that could have been used to kill the young woman. Edna admits to having been in Daniel Pratt's warehouse, but denies any culpability in the electrocution. She is cleared of all suspicion.
- Garrison used to live at Miss Beasley's Boarding House before she got married.
- Edna (née Garrison) Brooks returns as the stepmother to Simon.

- The kiss with Edna Garrison was the first for George Crabtree (on screen in the series) and remained his only kiss until Murdoch and the Cloud of Doom.
