Toronto [ZNN] September 25th marks the 10th anniversary of the Hon. Paul T. Hellyer former Canadian Minister of Defence coming forward in 2005 at the University of Toronto to challenge the Canadian government on the reality of the UFO phenomenon.
Hellyer is on record as stating that after reading the book The Day After Roswell by former military officer Colonel Phillip J. Corso – Hellyer consulted with a retired US Air Force General who told Hellyer: “Every word of it is true and more.” Since that moment Hellyer has launched a tireless and determined journey towards the truth and to bring an end to government secrecy. Since that historic day Mr. Hellyer has brought his message to a global audience through lectures, radio and television interviews, personal appearances and his books Light at the End of the Tunnel: A Survival Plan for the Human Species and The Money Mafia: A World in Crisis.
In his pursuit to eliminate the demonization of the Extraterrestrial presence that is now engaging the planet, Hellyer has sparred with the likes of Stephen Hawking. In a 2010 report in the Toronto Star, Peter Rakobowchuk of The Canadian Press wrote: “The longtime cabinet minister accuses Hawking of spreading misinformation about extraterrestrials. ‘I think he’s indulging in some pretty scary talk there that I would have hoped would not come from someone with such an established stature,’ Hellyer said in an interview. ‘I think it’s really sad that a scientist of his repute would contribute to what I would consider more misinformation about a vast and very important subject.’ “
While Hellyer was roundly criticized by former colleague Liberal Senator Colin Kenny on the ET matter in Rakobowchuk’s 2010 article, Hellyer refused to back-down sticking to his guns as he championed the Global ET Disclosure movement spearheaded by Stephen Bassett of the Paradigm Research Group in Washington DC who was a featured speaker at the 2005 U of T symposium.
In his pursuit of full government disclosure on the reality of UFOs and an ET presence, Hellyer has cited dozens of government documents proving the level of secrecy about UFOs is rampant at the highest levels of government, military and intelligence agencies in the US and Canada.
Hellyer has also highlighted in his addresses sworn testimony by US missile launch commanders about the shutting-down of US ICBM nuclear warheads by craft of unknown origin as well as the creation of ultra-secret national security states and even “breakaway civilizations” who are in possession of technologies that could arrest climate change and save the planet. As a statesman, Hellyer has clearly played a significant role in igniting and sustaining the growing global discourse to end government secrecy on the matter of UFOs and an ET presence.
Hellyer has made it his business to investigate these matters meticulously, as evidenced by his research and analysis of the facts in both of his books – Light at the End of the Tunnel and Money Mafia. To the credit of the Canadian press, some did take up the matter of Hellyer’s bold debut seriously in 2005 and 2007. John Ward of CP (Canada Press) was the first to break the news of Hellyer’s coming forward in a September 12, 2005 article – Former Canadian defense minister becomes leading speaker. This CP wire release was picked up by hundreds of news outlets globally.
Later, in 2007 – after this writer sent a letter to then Governor General Michaëlle Jean asking the Canadian government to acknowledge the UFO/ET matter – Joanna Smith, now a reporter at the Toronto Star’s Ottawa Bureau penned the article Ex-defence minister joins search for aliens. ZNN considers this article by Joanna Smith as one of the most positive and instructive pieces of journalism by a Canadian reporter on the work of Mr. Hellyer.
How was it that an 82 year old former cabinet minister under Prime Ministers Pierre Elliot Trudeau and Nobel Prize winner Lester B. Pearson and the longest serving member of the Privy Counsel, decided in 2005 to break an embargo of the truth surrounding the UFO issue? And how is it that Hellyer to this day in 2015 continues his epic trek at the age of 92 to enlighten humanity? To this writer who has known the man for 10 years only two words reveal the answer – integrity and determination.
This writer, who was on the podium in 2005 to introduce Mr. Hellyer to a spellbound audience at Convocation Hall, stated then and repeats now: “The fact that a former Minister of Defence is willing to come forward to talk about the reality of this phenomenon is Canadian history – we are here today witnessing history.”
If the Canadian Press and its international counter parts like Lee Speigel at the Huffington Post – Jennifer Harper at the Washington Times – Billy Cox of the Herald Tribune – Mitch Potter at the Toronto Star’s Washington Bureau and the Toronto Star’s Ottawa Bureau reporter Joanna Smith take Mr. Hellyer’s message to the next level of public inquiry – Paul Hellyer will again make history and quite possibly write the script humanity is waiting for about its possible future and our place in the cosmos.
In this election year in Canada this matter is in the hands of the Fourth Estate – the only true representative of the people. Just one question or a probative article by one or two brave journalists on this matter could make the difference. The question is which news organization will make this the election issue no one wants to talk about. The bold convictions of one Canadian statesman could revive a very tired, uninspired and passionless election campaign.
Four city Canadian tour to present indisputable National Security evidence to Canadian Minister of Defence the Hon. Jason Kenney and the Canadian public
For Immediate Distribution
Toronto [ZNN] ZlandCommunications 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.]
Government, Agency and Political witnesses prepared to testify under oath before Congress on Extraterrestrial related events and evidence
Toronto [ZNN] Stephen G. Bassett Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group is extending PRG’s world-wide influence to once again challenge the White House on the ET question. This challenge is a re-assertion of actions taken by PRG over the last several weeks to test the metal of American democracy.
First – the distribution to all members of the US Congress and Senate of the entire DVD set cataloguing the proceedings during the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure on the ET question held in May of 2013 at the Washington National Press Club.
At the week-long hearing before former members of Congress and the Senate, Bassett brought forward 40 former government, military and agency witnesses to present over 30 hours of compelling testimony about their knowledge of and involvement in specific incidents, briefings and research attesting to the reality of an extraterrestrial presence.
Actual government documents, threats and intimidation by senior military officials towards military personnel and accounts of and interactions with the phenomenon of craft of unknown origin were brought forward each day in unrelenting waves of evidence. This evidence challenges the White House assertion that this phenomenon and the entire matter of an ET presence do not exist.
Former Congressional and Senate members were unanimous in their call for the US government to hold open hearings and make public all files in their possession on these matters.
Second – Now Bassett, in his most recent We the People Petition, challenges the White House to do the same: Support open congressional hearings that will allow former US military officers, government agency and political witnesses to testify under oath before a committee of the US Congress.
Many have questioned Bassett’s relentless pursuit of the entire matter of the existence of UFOs and a so-called ET presence on Earth – saying it’s falling on deaf ears. Others say Bassett is doing something historic and difficult but very concrete about government secrecy and intransigence.
Those who do question Bassett’s ET pursuits – particularly a timorous mainstream media and an imperious elite within the US government – know full well they are playing a fruitless political game of ‘truth or dare’ with Bassett – one that can only be ended by the sheer magnitude of the evidence and the force of the truth behind that evidence.
There is no question Bassett has revealed the truth with bona fide and irrefutable witness testimony and documentation on the ET question. He has presented this truth to Congress and the Senate on a silver platter in the form of HD DVD coverage of witness testimony. With that in their hands, Bassett is now daring Congress to acknowledge what he has given to them by holding open hearings to let the truth be known to the American people.
This is why Bassett is counting on public support to sign the We the People Petition at: THE PETITION. Bassett needs 150 signatures to gain visibility of the petition on the We the People web site and 100,000 before February 6, 2015 to get a public response from the White House.
When asked what his basic message to Congress is, Bassett stated: “The message will be the same: open and review the Citizen Hearing DVD sets, meet with PRG’s lobbyist to discuss the content, and hold hearings for military, agency and political witnesses to testify.”
ZNN Editorial Comment
Will Bassett succeed? The determination of all who seek the truth could be the determining factor for Mr. Bassett. One can only imagine what will happen next if or when Bassett gets the 100,000 signatures. This eventuality raises three plaintive questions of a moral nature about the fate of American democracy:
• Will the compelling desire for an open dialogue about the ET question and interspecies ethics materialize should elected officials in Congress and the Senate come to a conscious understanding of their sworn duty as servants of the people?
• Or, will the dialectic between YES and NO continue – leaving citizens helpless in the amorphous middle-ground of uncertainty where the power of the State continues to assert its dominance over citizens’ rights to know about their place in the cosmos?
• Will the miasma choking American ‘democracy’ and the futile ramblings of a gutless President be somehow resolved if the people were to react and actually decide to give Bassett his 100,000?
ZNN supports PRG in its efforts to bring forward the truth. What are your plans?
