• 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.”

Four city Canadian tour to present indisputable National Security evidence to Canadian Minister of Defence the Hon. Jason Kenney and the Canadian public


Press Release

For Immediate Distribution




Toronto [ZNNZlandCommunications has learned that, in addition to over 9,500 UFO files on record in the Department of National Defence and RCMP archives, the NORAD Commander has verified in a correspondence to Disclosure Canada of a five year average of 1800 reports and 75 intercepts of what they refer to as ‘UNKNOWN TRACKS’ or ‘Tracks of Interest’. Government officials have never before disclosed this information to the Canadian public. [Canadian Access to Information file A0441177_1-A-2014-01494-000]

According to Disclosure Canada – a recently formed investigative group – questions about these reports and intercepts, along with thousands of archived files about UFOs and extraterrestrials appear to be something Canadian government officials do not want to talk about. Disclosure Canada wants to know more from Canada’s Minister of Defence.

In a dramatic venture to get answers from the Canadian government on the questions remaining in the dark about the NORAD report and Canada’s UFO files, this Toronto group has sent a letter of inquiry to Jason Kenney, Canada’s recently appointed Minister of National Defence. This letter is expected to be sent to Liberal Party Leader Justin Trudeau, the NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in addition to Parliamentary Defence critics Jack Harris and Joyce Murray and Parliamentary Secretary James Bezan.

Disclosure Canada today revealed to ZNN that the Canadian Department of National Defence has confirmed receipt of its letter to Minister Kenney.

It appears Disclosure Canada has indeed done their homework. Disclosure Canada has informed ZNN that they have in their possession a mistakenly divulged, line by line NORAD air traffic control flight log document from Canada’s Department of Defence that describes a minute by minute transcription of how Canadian CF-18 jets were scrambled out of COMOX AFB in British Columbia Canada to intercept and eventually make contact with three UFOs in 2001.

This UFO encounter was  also corroborated by the visual confirmation of pilots aboard a U.S. LR-35 Medical Evacuation jet out of Anchorage Alaska. [Ed. Note: ZNN has been informed by Disclosure Canada that due to the sensitivity of this specific document, only journalists with a desire to acquire this ATC report will be granted access upon request.]

The letter to Minister Kenney along with its support documentation can be access below. 



The Disclosure Canada Tour

To bring all of this information to Canadians and media, Disclosure Canada is set to launch a four city cross-Canada tour beginning in Montreal Quebec on April 4th, 2015 and ending in Vancouver on April 19th with stops in Toronto and Calgary.

The purpose – according to the group’s spokesperson – is to disclose the truth to Canadians about what the Canadian government knows and has known about the phenomenon of UFOs for over 60 years.

Disclosure Canada, headed by entrepreneur Chris Russak and broadcaster David Whitehead is kicking off its four city cross-country tour with its broadside letter to Minister Jason Kenney. And, they seem to have the proof to back-up each alarming claim in it.

Russak – the tour’s co-ordinator told ZNN: “We plan to bring forward some very shocking news and we will start by sending it to the Minister of Defence. Out of respect we at Disclosure Canada feel the Minister should be made aware of what we know before we tell the Canadian people. We have discovered and have absolute proof that the Canadian government has, for decades, investigated, researched and attempted to sequester open debate and discussion about what many call flying saucers or unidentified flying objects. Not only that, we have confirmed documentation that unequivocally proves Canada has been an active partner with the United States through their joint operation – NORAD and  have been engaged in tracking what they refer to as ‘unknown tracks’ or ‘unknowns’ at altitudes of up to 35,000 feet. Our Minister of Defence – the Hon. Jason Kenney has oversight of these matters and, as citizens with the right to know, we want answers. It’s quite simple actually.” 

Russak went on to point out, “We also have clear documentation that information about the nature of these encounters and the many other government discussions about UFOs have been kept hidden from the public. We want the Honourable Minister to fully explain what these encounters are and, to account for why this information has been kept secret from our elected representatives in Parliament and from the public he serves.”

Russak also told ZNN that information obtained by one of his research advisors through a recently acquired Access to Information request confirms that a letter from the NORAD Commander at Petersen Air Force Base in Colorado stated that over the last five years there has been a yearly average of 1800 Tracks of Interest resulting in 75 intercepts.

Regrettably, according to Russak’s research advisor, all other information requested about ‘unknown tracks’ or ‘Tracks of Interest’, has been denied. Russak plans to have this document, along with a barrage of other documents, available for media and public review as part of his letter to the Canadian Minister of Defence.

Canadian Broadcaster David Whitehead, Mr. Russak’s associate stated to ZNN, “This is something the mainstream media in Canada has ignored for far too long. It’s time for those in the Canadian media who investigate everything from Senate scandals and election improprieties to rail disasters and a former mayor’s drug problem to take this decisively authentic and politically explosive issue with the seriousness it deserves. They will have a field day with this one. We feel it will be a “Watergate-like” event. Top level military brass know all about this – why shouldn’t we? Why all the secrecy? If you want to know more, read the letter to Minister Kenney, visit our web site or,  for the whole narrative by our expert speakers – attend one of our Disclosure Canada conferences in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary or Vancouver, you won’t regret it – guaranteed.”

Finally, when asked by ZNN whether the letter to the Minister of Defence has anything to do with the Harper government’s pension for metal-plated secrecy and, whether the timing of the tour is a politically motivated forerunner to the 2015 Federal election, Whitehead, with no hesitation responded cryptically, “Both…”

According to one Disclosure Canada research expert, governments have consistently refused to openly discuss the UFO matter in any manner – choosing to hide behind the mantra of ‘national security’. Researchers appear to be asking – If, as government officials insist, there is no evidence of the reality of UFOs, then why is it a breach of national security to discuss it, why does so much documentation exist and why has there been a massive embargo of secrecy surrounding this matter for over six decades?

Disclosure Canada’s first salvo to the Minister of Defence seems destined to spark controversy within a secrecy-prone Harper Cabinet. If Russak and Whitehead get their message across, as they seem well-prepared to do, the soon to arrive deluge of the Duffy-Senate Scandal investigation will be compounded when Canadian’s and the media in four of Canada’s largest cities get wind that UFOs are real and the government has known it for over 60 years.

[Ed Note: Unbeknownst to most Canadians – Canada did release over 9500 UFO files in 2007. These UFO files have never been publicly addressed by government officials. They have however been carefully sequestered in a complex labyrinth of categories that present even the most accomplished researchers with the daunting task of finding out what the Canadian Defence Department and the RCMP have tucked away about UFOs. Visit Library and Archives Canada to find out how difficult it is to access and sort through these files.]

Victor Viggiani, B.A. M.Ed.

A democratically elected government´s mandate to serve those who elect it is never well served when its political leadership believes it has the constitutional right to guard national security secrets by deceiving its people.

In making available 9500 files on its web site entitled Canada´s UFOs – Search for the Unknown, the Canadian government has opened an international controversy on unidentified flying objects.

This controversy is fueled by the clear admission that Canadian officials in the Ministry of National Defense regularly discussed tactics and policies on how to ´play-down´ the UFO phenomenon as far back as 1950. It is even more instructive that Canada, in 2005 and 2007, chose to resurrect these controversial policy letters and hide them among thousands of mundane UFO sighting reports.

By hiding these files in plain sight, did the Canadian government attempt to deceive its citizens by proving it can be a master of misdirection, or was it a simple case of bureaucratic pragmatism? Regardless, these measures and the letters themselves have created a serious credibility problem for the Canadian government.

The first part of the problem: Because the recent release of UFO files were discharged with no notification, consultation or publicity, few have paid any attention to the hidden gems in the avalanche of data at Library and Archives Canada that depict direct government involvement in the UFO matter.

The second part of the problem: There now remains no doubt that Canadian government officials in the Department of National Defense indeed engaged the UFO issue in a serious manner.

It will be shown beyond any doubt that a series of internal memoranda reveals how the government intended to deceive the electorate by hiding, in plain sight, explosive official correspondence in a quagmire of endlessly staid UFO reports and pointless bureaucratic correspondence.

Canada can no longer deny and must now acknowledge it has a deep and long history of involvement in UFOs. As demonstrated by the total absence of media coverage or public consultation – Canadian officials were quite successful in concealing its UFO involvement.

No one, outside of a handful of UFO research experts, was aware that Canada had even set up the archived UFO data base. Released initially in August 2005, then more files in December 2007 – no international, national or local announcement, notification or press coverage accompanied Canada´s mass data-dump of UFO information.

Significant portions of this data clearly implicate Canadian officials in the use of American tactics to minimize and ´play-down´ the UFO matter. Is this why the Canadian government´s release of 9500 UFO files was such a quiet affair? The answer may lie in how the sheer massive size of the release itself appears to have been carefully designed to obscure government involvement in the UFO matter.


Sensitive government letters written by elected and non-elected government officials have been cleverly concealed among thousands and thousands of pages of innocuous UFO sighting reports on a government sponsored web site. The results: explosive security memoranda that, if exposed by mainstream media, could end the UFO truth embargo tomorrow, now go virtually unnoticed.

What possible rationale would precipitate such a decision?

If you were a government bureaucrat who knew that a very large number of UFO files containing sensitive information had to be released, you may perhaps surmise it would be effective if not necessarily wise to camouflage sensitive government documents among thousands of monotonous and tedious UFO sighting reports by citizens.

You might also develop a baffling search engine that would frustrate and otherwise discourage any real examination by even the most patient researcher. You would then have a seemingly transparent mechanism that is actually designed to conceal incriminating letters and memos, in plain sight, rather than openly depict in great detail government complicity in ´playing-down´ UFOs or portray the issue as anything serious or worthy of broad public or political debate.

The psychology of misdirection does not stop there. If the files had to be released what better way would there be than to disguise sensitive letters in the same way a stick-bug sits in plain sight yet remains concealed on a piece of bark or in the midst of rotting leaves – unnoticed by its predators.

The rationale: The next best alternative to invisibility is hiding something where it becomes indistinguishable from its background.

Prosaic, ramblings and often illegible letters about odd lights in the sky submitted by well-meaning but hapless citizens become the facade. A clever and very shrewd formula for a perfect disguise.

One cannot see more clearly by looking harder in the wrong direction.

Unless one is in fierce pursuit of something very, very specific, the average person is quickly discouraged from investigating more deeply, choosing rather to mouse-click away to glance over e-mail, check their personal financial portfolio or seek out who Britney Spears is now dating.


To anyone who may be dedicated to a genuine investigation by researching the material pages of the 9500 so-called UFO files at Library and Archives Canada, the concealed soon becomes revealed. What might a moderately thorough search of approximately six thousand files by a keen investigator over a four month period yield?

Several indisputable realities surface:

Evidential elements of verifiable and calculated government cover-up activities merge seamlessly with endless, repetitive and monotonous UFO reports by citizens. One damaging letter certifies that Canadian officials discussed tactics to play-down the UFO issue in tandem with the United States Air Force.

To the unsuspecting casual observer or a cautiously sceptical journalist, these charming sample-indictments of government duplicity go unnoticed.

After literally plowing through the interminable pages of the Library and Archives Canada web site for weeks on end, the answer obviously does not lie in the actual UFO reports themselves but in how the Canadian government chose to quietly release these files and in how the critical substance of the communications among senior Department of National Defense officials were cleverly buried.

One UFO research observer stated, “After an exhaustive study, our evaluation reveals that official policy memoranda and letters on UFOs actually exist. These letters were written by high level officials within the Canadian Department of National Defense. They not only illustrate how officials attempted to minimize the immense frequency and ubiquitous nature of UFO sightings in Canada but these correspondence also clearly demonstrate how the Department of National Defense orchestrated intra-departmental tactics and policy designed specifically to ´play-down´ the UFO phenomenon. 

By hiding these important files in the way they did – the government made a high-quality mistake – if there is such a thing as a ´first rate´ mistake.”


1. Canadian Officials Develop Policy Similar to The United States Air Force to “Play-Down” Reports of UFOs Canadian Joint Intelligence Committee Memorandum – G.S. Austin, Director of Air Intelligence August 4, 1950.

“The present USAF policy is to play down the subject, investigating only when considered necessary by the area commander without any special arrangements for reporting or investigation. It seems that a similar policy on our part would be wise and that it would be undesirable to produce a special questionnaire or make any arrangements for investigation since this would tend to give publicity to the matter. It is suggested therefore that sighting reports should not be solicited…”

2. A letter from the Minister of National Defense in contrast indicates Ministers of National Defense sent contradictory letters to inquisitive Canadian citizens informing them that no department within the government had instructions or a desire to withhold information about objects that may be of extraterrestrial origin despite the fact the files were designated “restricted” or “secret” since the 1950s and, that Canadian policy was to “play-down” UFO reports.

One ministerial letter states; “I can assure you that there is no department of the government that desires or has instructions to withhold information on objects that might be of extraterrestrial origin.” Minister of National Defense Douglas Harkness March 1962.

Clearly this statement of policy by a Minister of Defense is inconsistent with, and contradicts the practice of suppressing publicity on UFOs as suggested by the Director of Air Intelligence.

3.  Official Plan – In The Event of a UFO Landing. No other letter, yet uncovered, more pointedly indicts the Canadian government as does the suggestion made by a sitting Director of Scientific Intelligence concerning the development of a plan in the event of a UFO landing on Canadian soil. He states to the Director of Air Intelligence, “You might also consider it advisable to add that should the Flying Saucer actually make a landing on Canadian territory, the nearest RCAF Command should be advised immediately by telegram… Maybe we had better talk over this when you have thought it over.” A.J.G. Langley, Defense Research Board Director of Scientific Intelligence – April 19, 1950. 3.


It is important to affirm that when taken in a larger international context, the release of the Canadian files provides an interesting backdrop to the more recent Clinton White House UFO/ET letters uncovered by the relentless Canadian researcher Grant Cameron and renowned Washington-based political activist Stephen G. Bassett, Director of the Paradigm Research Group (PRG).

These letters from within the White House Administration during the William Clinton years as President illustrate the UFO/ET matter was of paramount concern by a sitting President and his staff.

Known commonly as the Rockefeller Initiative, these letters and communications exposed by Bassett and Cameron indicate the UFO issue was pursued vigourously from 1993 to 1996 by Laurance S. Rockefeller in concert with his attorney Henry L. Diamond and a myriad of players within the Clinton Administration including Ms. Hillary Clinton, now Secretary of State.

The Rockefeller Initiative letters which number between 50 and 55, trace a most remarkable trail of exhortations and recommendations by respected international philanthropist Laurance S. Rockefeller that the UFO – Extraterrestrial issue be removed from the vaults of government secrecy and dealt with in the open court of public discourse.

Involved in this dialogue to have President Clinton publicly examine the UFO/ET issue were high-level dignitaries Jack Gibbons Science Advisor to the President, Senator Pell Claiborne, and Representative Stephen Schiff to name but a few.

These provocative letters are matched only by the brazen assertion by former Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta in October 2002 at the National Press Club in Washington DC. There, Podesta stated about the UFO issue, “It is time for the government to declassify records that are more than 25 years old and to provide scientists with data that will assist in determining the real nature of this phenomenon.”

Is it less than coincidence that John Podesta was appointed Co-Chair of the White House post-election Transition Team by none other than President Barack Obama?

To this observer such levels of evidence proves – unequivocally – that anyone with even a minor  ‘need to know’ security status, knew the reality of UFOs was a given. Who knows more and why do they not come forward?


The complex and demanding nuances of this issue´s authenticity continue to perplex and be ignored by the world-wide media.

Media gravitation to North Korea´s insane nuclear muscle flexing or the constant drama surrounding the straight-jacket of the global economic crisis appear to render impotent the acuity of mainstream media to grasp or much less engage the larger issue of inter-stellar visitation by off-world civilizations millions of years in advance of the ant hill Earth.

Despite the less than fluid undertow of the media´s obsession with militarism and its incessant fixation on the global economic down-turn, the movement towards Disclosure of the UFO/ET reality will steadily accelerate.

The recognition that governments have concealed and repressed open discourse on this matter is now a matter of record and is receiving unprecedented acknowledgement by more and more mainstream press.

The acknowledged prospect of newly established relationships with or diplomatic overtures to off-world civilizations willing to positively engage the human race would re-focus humanity´s gaze. To reject or suppress the portent of such a possibility is the height of human hubris that denies the expansive capacity of our species to look beyond who we are, towards what we can become.

Those in Exopolitics advancing the notion of openness with interstellar visitors who are obviously making their presence known will soon no longer be the voice of a minority but a powerful geo-political force of serious reckoning.

Exopolitics asks the hard questions: who are these entities, where are they from, why are they here, shall we look at the evidence? Or, more importantly, can dreadfully powerful and treacherously dominant geo-political forces be exposed so they can no longer dictate the precondition that the existence of off-world civilizations shall be denied and repressed?

If these kinds of questions are never addressed or their potential ever pondered, no solutions to our cloistered existence or imminent environmental demise are forth-coming. The avoidance of these very fundamental questions acutely restrains humanity´s evolution and its capacity to recognize we are being visited at a time of immense social, scientific, environmental, cultural, religious, economic and political turmoil globally.

If it is not hyperbole to assert that every component of our civilization´s matrix of existence is under relentless if not hysterical stress, then why is it considered an exaggeration or folly to acknowledge that we are indeed being visited by off-world civilizations that just may have overcome their own primitive extinction behaviours and who may be able to offer humanity some solutions?

Solutions of our own often seem to appear on the horizon but are soon summarily undermined by powerful geo-political forces seeking to maintain the power structures of a permanent war economy, endless cycles of ethnic violence, a monetary system that serves corporate interests and energy industrialists who cram oil down the throats of everything that moves.

Consider for a moment the simplest yet obvious solution to Earth´s fossil fuel addiction. The energy and propulsion systems used by these off-world civilizations to power their craft over light-years in space, could in very short order, eliminate our oil-based dependency.

Engagement with these off-world civilizations could well be the quantum knowledge-leap needed so desperately by our shackled humanity. Again John Podesta Former Clinton White House Chief of Staff – “I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on the question of government investigations of UFOs. We ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth, and we ought to do it because it’s the law.”

Sceptics and investigative journalists need no longer demand scientific proof of an Extraterrestrial presence. They need only look at released government files to know their democratic juggernauts in politics and military and intell-agencies have been playing a manipulative and clever shell game of hide and seek with the UFO/ET issue for 60 years.

Peculiarly – mainstream investigative journalism still appears reluctant to take on the big boys or to take notice of the obvious – all hidden in plain sight.
