• In 1967, Stefan Michalak was out searching for precious metals on May Long weekend near Falcon Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park, in Manitoba, Canada, when he came upon a UFO sitting on the ground. It melted his glove when he touched it. When the UFO flew away, Michalak was thrown back to the ground from a blast of hot air or gas, leaving Michalak with third-degree burns on his chest in a grid-like pattern. (see photo image below)

• The Royal Canadian Mint has made a $20 coin to commemorate Michalak’s encounter, known as the Falcon Lake Incident. The coin (pictured above) is egg-shaped and features a bucolic image of  Falcon Lake with Michalak in the foreground.  When a black light is shined on the front of the coin it enhances the UFO and reveals a yellow light beaming down from it.  (A black light flashlight comes with the coin.)  The back of the coin depicts Queen Elizabeth. A total of 4,000 of these coins will be minted and cost collectors $129.95 each.  (As of April 9th they were sold out.)

The Royal Canadian Mint is releasing the new $20 coin to commemorate the province’s most famous encounter with an unidentified flying object more than 50 years ago.

In 1967, Stefan Michalak was out searching for precious metals on May Long weekend near Falcon Lake in Whiteshell Provincial Park.

What he found wasn’t gold or silver, but something far more interesting.

The story goes that Michalak stumbled across the UFO during his excursion. Michalak reported burns after he touched the UFO, which melted the gloves he was wearing. When the UFO flew away, Michalak was thrown backward onto the ground from a blast of hot air or gas, leaving Michalak with third-degree burns on his chest in a grid-like pattern.

Michalak on his back and the UFO hovering over his body is the scene that is depicted on the front side of the coin.

• Between 1966 and 1967, the number of UFO reports in Canada increased by over 400%, and several government departments began taking serious interest.

• Canadian ufologist, Chris Rutkowski, has recently uncovered 27 pages of documents in Canada’s national archives detailing six UFO cases that were reported by Wing Commander Douglas Robertson in 1967.

• The documents include written reports, photographs of various UFOs, anomalous radar sightings, and even crop circles. They are divided into seven categories: 1) hoaxes, 2) mass hysteria, 3) psychological suggestion, 4) misinterpretation of natural events, 5) advanced military technology, 6) sightings likely due to psychological conditions, and 7) “unusual sightings” or UFOs.

• Among these documents is the ‘Falcon Lake incident’, one of Canada’s most famous encounters. The Ministry of Defence found evidence of radioactivity which corroborates eyewitness testimony, and that scientists were unable to explain the anomaly, noting “a satisfactory ending or conclusion is still lacking.”

• In another incident, a man reported a UFO flying over trees near Clear Water Bay and found evidence of wilted leaves on the trees. The Department of Forestry were “unable to explain the reason for the wilting.”

• Is this new evidence meant to placate us just a little longer, keeping our attention on the government bureaucracies which hide these secrets as opposed to on the skies?

 

Given all of the declassified files and recordings of unexplained aerial phenomena being made public in the United States, it’s no surprise that other countries including America’s closest neighbors would begin disclosing their own interest in or knowledge of UFOs. Case in point: a new trove of documents have been released which shed light on the Canadian government’s role in researching UFO phenomena. What will these add to the growing body of declassified UFO files?

Noted Canadian ufologist Chris Rutkowski uncovered the documents in Canada’s national archives and recently posted them to his blog Ufology Research. The 27 pages of documents detail six UFO cases recorded in 1967 and were prepared by Wing Commander Douglas Robertson. It is unknown to whom the documents were presented, though Rutkowski speculates it could have been for a newly-appointed Minister of Defence. Between 1966 and 1967, UFO reports went up by over 400% in Canada and several government departments began taking serious interest in these phenomena.

The documents ultimately breakdown numerous sightings and reports into seven categories: hoaxes, mass hysteria or psychological suggestion, misinterpretations of natural events, advanced or unknown military technology, and sightings likely due to psychological conditions. However, the report does list a category which includes truly anomalous sightings defined as “unusual sightings which the viewer is unable to identify or explain, namely, UFOs.” The document also contains references to various educational and medical institutions which aided the Ministry of Defence in debriefing, interviewing, and assessing witnesses.

• Archeology students at the University of have uncovered the oldest settlement ever to be found in North America, located on Triquet Island in northern British Columbia.

• Carbon dating has determined that the settlement dates back to 14,000 years ago.

• Archeologists are finding that civilization on the Earth has existed far longer than mainstream scientists have always claimed.

 

A team of students from the University of Victoria’s archeology department have uncovered the oldest settlement ever to be found in North America. They were digging on Triquet Island, located about 300 miles north of Victoria, British Columbia’s capital, when they discovered the ruins.
The team found many ancient artifacts, including fishhooks, spears, and tools for making fires. They also found a cooking hearth that still contained charcoal flakes — burnt by indigenous prehistoric peoples of Canada.

Using carbon dating techniques on the flakes, they were able to determine that the settlement dates back to about 14,000 years ago, making it thousands of years older than the pyramids, which are thought to have been built around 4,700 years ago. That is quite a significant age gap!

One of the students involved in the dig who helped uncover these ancient treasures, Alisha Pauvreau, said, “I remember when we got the dates back, and we just sat back and said ‘Holy moly, this is old.’ ”

Alisha and her team began investigating the area for ancient settlements after learning about the history of the indigenous Heiltsuk people, which told the story of a land that never froze during the last ice age.

A member of the Heiltsuk First Nation, William Housty, said, “To think about how these stories survived only to be supported by this archaeological evidence is just amazing.”

“This find is very important because it reaffirms a lot of the history that our people have been talking about for thousands of years.”
