February 28, 2007: News Agency AFP, the Ottawa Citizen and the Toronto Sun Release Interviews with the Hon. Paul Hellyer

Toronto (ON Canada) On the heels of Al Gore addressing Global Warming in Toronto Feb 21, News Agency AFP, the Ottawa Citizen and the Toronto Sun have released major interviews with the Hon. Paul Hellyer former Canadian Minister of National Defense on solutions to the global environmental crisis.

In preparation for his appearance at next week's Canadian Premiere Screening of THE FASTWALKERS documentary, Mr. Hellyer once again challenges governments to come forward on the ET issue.

February 24, 2007: Exopolitics Media Director Victor Viggiani provides Al Gore a disclosure package

Toronto, Ontario Canada - The new "Fastwalkers" documentary, PRG's "Open Letter to Albert Gore, Jr." and Exopolitics Toronto came together on Wednesday, February 21, when former Vice President Al Gore arrived in Toronto to present "An Inconvenient Truth" at the University of Toronto's Convocation Hall before a capacity audience of 1500.

Prior to the presentation Victor Viggiani, Director of Media Relations for Exopolitics Toronto, attempted to relay a special package of disclosure information to Mr. Gore, but was unsuccessful due to tight security restrictions as Gore arrived at U of T's Convocation Hall.

However, following the sold-out presentation's Q&A period, as Gore left the stage for a reception, Viggiani made his way with the Gore entourage backstage where he was greeted by the evening's host, Mr. David Peterson, Chancellor of the University of Toronto and former Premier of the province of Ontario.

At this time Viggiani requested that Mr. Peterson provide Mr. Gore the disclosure package, which Chancellor Peterson accepted with the assurance that Gore would receive it.

The package contained a DVD of the new documentary, "Fastwalkers", Canadian government documents, an Open Letter to Albert Gore, Jr. from Paradigm Research Group Executive Director Stephen Bassett, the Disclosure Project's two hour witness testimony DVD and comprehensive briefing documents, and a document containing statements by renowned political and security agency figures such as former CIA Director Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, J. Edger Hoover former FBI Director, Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford and Harry S. Truman indicating their need for the UFO issue to be fully examined by Congress and the media.

Exopolitics Toronto, the Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, Paradigm Research Group and the Disclosure Project call on Albert Gore, Jr. and his staff to review, analyze and act upon this important information which, among many things, supports the sequestered existence of technology derived from extraterrestrial vehicles which could dramatically impact a global warming response.

Post Conference Interview

Victor Viggiani, Toronto Exopolitics 2006 Press Conference organizer and head of Zland Communications, talks with Jerry, from Toronto, about the agenda of the press conference, the outcome of the event, and about the latest information surrounding efforts to promote the UFO disclosure process and knowledge about human/ET interaction via the discourse and actions of exopolitics. What's next for Toronto Exopolitics? Paul Hellyer will be requesting that a Canadian Senate Hearing be held on the subject of UFOs, and the knowledge of the Canadian government concerning them, in June 2006. This interview was recorded on 5/17/05.

Pre-Conference News

Commentary by Larry Dicken, Executive Producer, The Jerry Pippin Show 5/8/06

Just days before the Zland Communications sponsored press conference on Exopolitics, featuring Hon. Paul Hellyer, Dr. Steven Greer and the showing of the 2001 Washington, DC Disclosure Press Conference video, Reuters News Service distributed a story world-wide regarding the release of a UK FOIA requested document of a secret study performed for the British Government in 2000 that, like US Condon Report of 1969, dismissed the existence of ET controlled UFOs visiting the UK  as misinterpreted natural phenomena (photo, left) and stressed that UFOs, as such, pose no threat to national security.

Notice this study is only valid for the UK. It does not address the rest of planet Earth. One could say to the Brits, better late than never in coming forth to once again support your brethren in the US, while putting down your cantankerous former member of the Commonwealth (read Empire), Canada, or at least some of its citizens. These crazed Canadian citizens, assisted by an equally crazed American emergency room physician turned spiritual guide, could well be disclosing information that could be a terroristic threat to global security.

The timing of the media release of this secret report is, needless to say, highly suspicious. Why are the US and UK governments so continuously concerned about convincing their citizens of the non-existence of a purportedly non-existent problem? Shouldn't it have been time to move on with the grand human exploration and conquest of the galaxy, since we are alone in this Universe, and stop arguing with those damned amateur deluded UFOlogists?

How strange that UFOs appear to have reality as intelligently controlled vehicles from other star systems over and on some parts of our planet and not others. Canada may well be the battleground for international disclosure, as the American and British Intelligence agencies battle the French Government, which issued the COMETA Report in July 1999 (see detailed summary here). That report stated not only that ET controlled UFOs exist, but also that they could be a threat.

The Toronto venue becomes a part of the ongoing battle for control of the minds of humanity, which mirrors the long standing internal disputes in Canada between the English and French speaking population. We here at the Jerry Pippin Show say Vive La France and bring on those French Fries and a bottle of French Cabernet.

The ETs are all good guys. To say otherwise is racist. Humanity's racism and violence could spread to the Galaxy. The ETs want to help us, but the mean US Government is preventing contact, and is planning a fake ET invasion to assure world domination by the corporate elite.

We have watched with some concern as the emerging area of exo-politics has taken a dangerous and potentially ruinous turn towards rumor, urban-myth speculation and inflammatory xenophobia.

While there are certainly diverse opinions regarding why any given extraterrestrial civilization may wish to visit Earth at this time in our history, recent public comments by Michael Salla have added a virulent strain of fear-based xenophobia, based on the flimsiest of documentation. While I am usually reticent to engage in commentary regarding the opinions espoused by certain personalities, I feel a point has been reached where silence only redounds to the further empowerment of a message of fear, hatred, prejudice – and the unwitting buttressing of the argument for weapons and war in space.

Clearly, more is unknown than known in the vast field of extraterrestrial studies. And at this embryonic stage of human-extraterrestrial relations, there is yet much to learn, explore and discover. But in the past year, Salla, who purports to support peaceful initiatives in this regard, has put forth prejudicial and dangerous characterizations of ET actions – up to and including the ludicrous accusation that a certain tall, white ET race caused the Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004! He has maintained that a nefarious and injurious group of ETs have made a secret pact with covert humans – and have a harmful agenda towards the human race. This, and more.

The Disclosure Project has over 450 military, government and corporate insiders who have first-hand knowledge of actual UFO/ET events and projects. We find it odd that not a single one of these insiders can confirm the xenophobic rumors proffered by Salla.

The conflation of urban myth and rumor as fact is a dangerous precedent given what is at stake: The early stages of ET/Human interaction and relations. We cannot afford to recklessly take every rumor and tale - often originating from counter-intelligence operatives who are tasked with either defaming the UFO subject or sowing fear and prejudice - as a point of fact upon which to reach a conclusion.

The facile acceptance of every story as true- no matter how dangerously xenophobic - is irresponsible and can only serve the agenda of those who wish to see the populace dis-informed, panicked and cowed into eventually accepting a military, space-based solution to the ET problem.

Consider: The Disclosure Project, as well as other researchers, have found a multi-decade pattern of hoaxed UFO/ET related events that are clustered around pseudo-contact experiences (also know as abductions) mutilations, vivisections and the like. Numerous, corroborative military and shadowy para-governmental witnesses have testified to actually conducting abductions and mutilations for their psychological warfare value. Once such witness, an Army Ranger involved with special ops stated to me: “You have no idea how many people – including prominent military and political figures – we have abducted and terrified so that they will learn to hate the ET presence and support conflict with them…”

Martin Cannon in the 1980s, and later the book MILAB (Military Abductions) documented the sophisticated use of electronics, ARVs (man-made UFO look-alike craft called alien reproduction vehicles) and ‘stage-craft’ to hoax ET contact events for their psychological warfare value.

Indeed, CIA documents released to us under FOIA, and which appear in ‘Extraterrestrial Contact: The Evidence and Implications’, and ‘Disclosure’, both by this author, discuss using the UFO matter for psychological warfare purposes.

The Canadian top–secret document by Wilbert Smith from the early 1950s explains that the UFO matter is the most secret subject in the US government, exceeding even the secrecy surrounding the development of the hydrogen bomb. Given these facts, is it reasonable to accept as true every scary account circulating in the public, and based on such tales, make sweeping, prejudicial statements regarding this ET race or that?

We must use restraint and caution if we are to avoid being manipulated into the acceptance of another false enemy to unite around and fight. Numerous senior shadow government insiders have independently described to me a concerted effort to dis-inform the public and create the false impression of a threat from space, so that eventually a multi-trillion dollar build-up of weapons in space will be accepted by the masses.

Such propaganda is nothing new. Every military power that has wished to further engage in warfare has first demonized the enemy. Hitler and his minions expertly demonized Jews, gay people and others so that people would passively accept the ‘final solution’. The virulent, negative portrayal of such groups was essential to the creation of a supposed enemy to be dealt with violently.

Today, we see racist appellations applied to certain alleged ET groups – The Grays! The Reptilians! The Tall White Ones! Must we go down this tired, dirty path again? Must we replay the sordid history of human racism, prejudice, and xenophobia as we begin our first steps towards the stars?

No. We must not. We must restrain our lower fears and tame our own demons – and look with the eye of truth at the cosmos around us, and ask ourselves this: Who would benefit from such fearsome portrayals of ET life? Where might such a shadowy group wish to lead us? How much information – bandied about so cavalierly as fact - may actually be sophisticated counter-intelligence disinformation designed to sow the seeds of hate and fear – thus justifying weapons in space.

The usual suspects – those who thrive on enormous concentrated wealth and power - would like to unite the world - but not in peace. They wish to unite and control us not for that good future that assuredly awaits humanity. Rather, they wish to control through fear and war – a war between worlds – the final master-play of power consolidation where all of humanity may be stampeded into a unified opposition to some – maybe only one - ET race. And by so doing, amass the ultimate global control, through fear spreading like wildfire amongst the people.

Dr. Von Braun on his death-bed warned of such a plan. He warned us that after the Cold War, there would be ‘rogue nations and nations of concern’; and that this would be followed by global terrorism; and that this would be followed by a threat from space – the ultimate trump-card of fear, whereby the entirety of humanity could be united to, as the movie ‘Independence Day’ put it, “kick alien butt!”

There is no way to assess an ET agenda without first grasping the covert human agenda. We cannot discern what is real and what is Memorex – what is ET and what is pseudo-ET disinformation, unless we penetrate the halls of smoke and mirrors that is the vast shadow government’s propaganda machine.

It is not easy. It takes enormous patience, perseverance, diligence and care.

But it is worth it - for to do otherwise is to wittingly or unwittingly make exo-politics an arm of the propaganda war machine.

We must do better than this. We must restrain our fears and prejudices and avoid the dissemination of negative and fear-inducing stereotypes, based on anecdotal tales and counter-intelligence programs. We must investigate fully the technological and psychological capabilities of those who are behind human UFO secrecy - and learn to discern the false from the real.

CSETI (The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence - www.CSETI.org) which is the parent organization for The Disclosure Project (www.DisclosureProject.org) has been sending expeditions around the world for 16 years to make contact with ET peoples. We have never been harmed. We have never been threatened. We have never been afraid. Thousands of people over the course of hundreds of expeditions, have interacted with these UFOs – and with the beings on-board them.

Through all of this, we have only found ET people who want to understand and help us. They are waiting for us to join them in space - as a people at peace. Then and only then will we find the arms of the Cosmos wide open, ready to embrace a peaceful and enlightened humanity, which will then travel freely among the stars.

We are proposing that those concerned with a constructive, mature approach to the emerging ET/Human relationship form a new Council on Inter-Planetary Relations. As a council of concerned citizens, let us explore how to best further a peaceful relationship with these cosmic visitors. Will you join us?

There are good ETs and bad ETs. Saying so doesn't make us racists, just realists. We must deal with ETs as we would deal with our fellow man in a civilized , enlightened way via diplomacy, not war. But, that is not what the mean US Government, in league with some of the bad ETs, wants. Working together, they are preventing contact.

Exopolitics versus Exospin:
A Response to Dr. Steven Greer
By Michael E. Salla, PhD.

In January 1994, I remember visiting the Jakarta office of Mr Irawan Abidin, the former Director of Foreign Information in the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I had just arrived from a two week field trip to the former Indonesian territory of East Timor researching alleged human rights abuses.

I had found ample evidence of abuses through the traumatized testimonies of many East Timorese I had spoken with. Mr Abidin assured me that systematic human rights abuses were not occurring in East Timor and that such claims were spurious accusations orchestrated by discontented Timorese expatriates who were the former ruling elite.

I politely explained to him what I had been told in my fieldwork involving interviews with dozens of private citizens, but he insisted that such claims were gross exaggerations and people were basically content in East Timor. He handed me a Ministry publication to support his position and exhorted me to tell the world how content people were with Indonesian rule in East Timor.

In reading Steven Greer's recent public statement, "Exopolitics or Xenopolitics" where he openly criticizes me as someone supporting xenophobic approaches to Exopolitics, I had a feeling of déjà vu with my earlier meeting with Mr Abidin concerning my research into alleged human rights abuses.

In his May 2 statement, Greer claims: "While there are certainly diverse opinions regarding why any given extraterrestrial civilization may wish to visit Earth at this time in our history, recent public comments by Michael Salla have added a virulent strain of fear-based xenophobia, based on the flimsiest of documentation."

Dr Greer further states: "He has maintained that a nefarious and injurious group of ETs have made a secret pact with covert humans -- and have a harmful agenda towards the human race." This, and more. The Disclosure Project has over 450 military, government and corporate insiders who have first-hand knowledge of actual UFO/ET events and projects. We find it odd that not a single one of these insiders can confirm the xenophobic rumors proffered by Salla."


I accept Dr Greer's implicit invitation to engage in a public debate with him concerning the evidence supporting the diverse motivations and activities performed by extraterrestrial visitors. I think such a debate is healthy and can lead to greater cooperation between exopolitical researchers and activists who have long been polarized into mutually antagonist camps of those exclusively viewing extraterrestrials as benign visitors helping humanity evolve, and those generally viewing extraterrestrials as committing systematic human rights abuses.

I will avoid personalizing such a debate which can only be a distraction and focus only on the arguments offered by Dr Greer and myself in discussing the substantive issues raised in his public statement and my own public research.

To begin, in his statement Greer explicitly refers to his database of 450 whistleblower cases as the source for his exopolitical view that extraterrestrials visiting Earth are exclusively benign advanced civilizations sincerely desiring humanity to evolve into a mature, sovereign and independent galactic species. It's worth pointing out that Dr Greer has only released the identities and testimonies of a comparatively small sample of that database in his Disclosure Book (which has almost 70 testimonies, less than 20% of his alleged database).

I have privately corresponded with Dr Greer on a number of occasions where he has repeatedly dismissed the data I have forwarded to him that some extraterrestrials are violating the rights of individuals, and that agreements with covert agencies have indeed been reached where these agencies have become complicit in such violations.

Dr Greer claims that his database of 450 military, government, and corporate whistleblower cases do not support the idea that extraterrestrials are engaging in such human rights violations, nor that some extraterrestrials have reached agreements with covert government agencies. He boldly claims that "not a single one of these insiders can confirm the xenophobic rumors proffered by Salla."

This is a gross misrepresentation of the data possessed by Dr Greer. This can be easily demonstrated by the case of Lt Col Philip Corso who is prominently featured as a Disclosure Project Witness, and is arguably the most widely known and significant whistleblower to ever emerge in UFO research. According to Greer, Corso did not confirm that some extraterrestrials were engaging in activities that violated individual rights which for Greer are xenophobic claims.

That is a gross misrepresentation of Col Corso's position as evidenced in statements such as the following in his soon to be published private notes: ... the aliens have shown a callous indifference concerning their victims.

Their behavior has been insidious and it appears they might be using our earth and manipulating earth life. Skeptics will excuse them that possibly they are benevolent and want to help, however, there is no evidence they have healed anyone or alleviated human ailments. On the other hand, they have caused pain, suffering and even death


I have privately corresponded with Greer on Corso's testimony but he has repeatedly dismissed this information and now boldly states that not a single one of these insiders can confirm such allegations. As the above quote and other selections from Corso's testimony demonstrate, Greer is incorrect. The case of Corso is not isolated.

For example, with regard to allegations of human rights abuses and of a shooting war involving extraterrestrials at an underground facility in New Mexico, Dulce, made by whistleblowers such as Phil Schneider, Greer includes these among the list of xenophobic rumors.

Unfortunately, another prominent Disclosure Project whistleblower, Dan Morris, not only confirms the existence of the Dulce facility, but also that Schneider did indeed work there and was eliminated for disclosing classified information about such bases and what had occurred there with resident extraterrestrials.

In Greer's' Disclosure book, Morris says: "There are other people who have been eliminated for what they know. One was a friend of mine. Phil Snyder (sic) who worked out here in New Mexico building the tunnels - the biggest one that he was involved with was the Dulce underground facility" (Disclosure, p. 359).

Another area where I have privately corresponded with Greer concerns alleged covert agreements between some extraterrestrial groups and covert government agencies. According to Greer's statement, this is part of the xenophobic rumor mill I am spreading on the flimsiest of documentation. We do not have to look too far to find evidence of such covert agreements among Greer's list of Disclosure Project witness.

In addition to Corso who claims that the government had been forced into a "negotiated surrender" with extraterrestrials, and of Morris's claims of extraterrestrials residing at the underground Dulce facility, we find the example of Capt Bill Uhouse, another Disclosure Project witness, who describes how extraterrestrials would come into classified meetings to give hints to scientists and engineers concerning the reverse engineering of extraterrestrial technology.

Similarly, Sgt Clifford Stone has testified how upon his induction into covert projects concerning extraterrestrials, he was taken into a secure facility under the Pentagon where he was taken to have a telepathic communication with a gray extraterrestrial where he blanked out and was then threatened with death if he disclosed what had happened.

The above examples demonstrate that Greer selectively filters out or ignores the testimonies of some Disclosure Project witnesses who describe invasive extraterrestrial behaviors, and agreements between extraterrestrials and covert government agencies.

More significantly, Greer excludes from his database an extensive number of whistleblowers that have publicly discussed extraterrestrials performing egregious activities, e.g., Paul Bennewitz, Phil Schneider, Robert Dean, John Lear, "Connor O'Ryan," Dan Burisch, Charles Hall and others.

For example, in the case of Charles Hall, Hall described numerous instances where Tall White extraterrestrials willfully intimidated, threatened or injured military servicemen who were unfortunate enough to accidentally run into the Tall Whites that roamed the Nellis AFB hidden facility and deliberately stalked servicemen.

In addition to manipulating his database by filtering Disclosure Project witness testimonies and excluding the testimonies of other whistleblowers revealing abusive extraterrestrial activities and covert government agreements, Greer regularly dismisses evidence from researchers with extensive field work expertise such as Dr David Jacobs, Budd Hopkins, Dr Karla Turner, Whitley Strieber, and others analyzing case studies of abductees whose rights have been systematically violated by extraterrestrials.

Dr Jacobs for example has examined hundreds of abduction case studies over several decades to reach his conclusion that the behavior of extraterrestrials consistently violates accepted human rights standards and is a long term threat to human sovereignty. According to Greer, Dr Jacobs work can be easily dismissed as part of the undocumented xenophobic rumor mill based on flimsy evidence, yet Jacob's work is well documented.

Also, Greer regularly refers to the Military Abductions (MILABs) phenomenon offered by Dr Helmut Lammer to support his thesis that all alleged abuses attributed to extraterrestrials can be ascribed to MILABs imitating extraterrestrials or to individuals projecting psychological traumas onto benign extraterrestrial visitors.

This is a distortion of the evidence provided by Dr Lammer who does not exclude the possibility that extraterrestrials are violating human rights during the abduction phenomenon, only that the military is attempting to replicate extraterrestrial methods and violating human rights in the process.

Furthermore, Greer does not refer to the extensive research of those such as Zecharia Sitchin, Dr Arthur Horn, William Bramley, Jim Marrs, and others who have examined archeological records and argued that humanity has been seeded by extraterrestrial groups who have violently competed among themselves for control of the Earth.

Indeed, these sources point to a long historical presence where humanity has been used as an exploitable resource by some extraterrestrial groups whose motivations and activities are certainly questionable when it comes to the question of human rights violations.

Finally, in addition to dismissing the data on different categories of researchers documenting extraterrestrial violations of human rights in the modern and ancient era, Greer dismisses the testimonies of a great number of alleged contactees describing the nefarious activities of some contemporary extraterrestrial visitors.

Contactees such as Howard Menger, Enrique Castillo Rincon, Eduard "Billy" Meier, "Prof Hernandez", Brian Scott, and many others whose testimonies have been documented and investigated by competent researchers.

In sum, by filtering the testimonies of Disclosure Project witnesses on invasive extraterrestrial activities and covert agreements; excluding the testimonies of whistleblowers openly describing invasive extraterrestrial behaviors; excluding the extensive data offered by reputable researchers of the abduction phenomenon; ignoring the data of exo-archeologists, and dismissing the relevance of many 'contactee' testimonies, Greer is engaging in a willful attempt to distort the public conclusions concerning the true motivations and activities of the extraterrestrial visitors.

While his effort to spin data concerning extraterrestrial activities in a positive light may be perceived by some to be well intentioned, it is in reality both naive and dangerous to distort public perceptions in this manner given the extensive data suggesting that extraterrestrials have been involved in systematic human rights violations and that some government agencies have been complicit in these.

Based on the data I have examined in my Exopolitics research, I have arrived at the conclusion that extraterrestrials are as varied as humans in terms of their motivations and interactions with humanity. Some extraterrestrials are highly ethical and principled as Dr Greer contends.

I have pointed out in a number of my research papers that many extraterrestrial groups are advanced evolved beings genuinely wishing to assist humanity in its evolution, and have not entered into covert agreements with government agencies where they believe advanced extraterrestrial technology will be misused by irresponsible government agencies. These extraterrestrials appear to be in the majority which would replicate the social dynamics of human societies where a majority a citizens are law abiding.

This is where in his statement Greer distorts the nuances in my research and argues as follows: "I feel a point has been reached where silence only redounds to the further empowerment of a message of fear, hatred, prejudice -- and the unwitting buttressing of the argument for weapons and war in space."

So Greer believes that my analysis buttresses the argument for the weaponization of space. The deliberate targeting of extraterrestrial visitors by covert government agencies using advanced weapons is a major concern which I have pointed out on a number of occasions in my recent papers


On the other hand, there appears to be a minority of extraterrestrial visitors, who view humans as a biological resource to be exploited and have entered into covert agreements with a number of government agencies who easily exploited due to the latter's desire for advanced technologies.

Extraterrestrials entering into such agreements have demonstrated little genuine desire to assist humanity in its evolution to a mature planetary civilization. There is credible evidence that covert agreements have led to various government agencies becoming complicit in some of the more egregious extraterrestrial activities such as what had or is occurring at the alleged Dulce facility.

The solution is not a military campaign using space weapons, but a political solution based on political disclosure of the extaterrestrial presence and the public accountability of public officials making key decisions in the management of extraterrestrial affairs. The truth concerning alleged covert agreements between some extraterrestrial visitors and government agencies makes for a far more complex exopolitical situation than Dr Greer is willing to concede or support.

That is understandable since the data is seldom conclusive, important whistleblowers or witnesses are intimidated into silence, which altogether compounds the difficulty of researchers seeking to document their sources and reach reliable conclusions.

Nevertheless, the available data is overwhelming that such agreements exist, and that some extraterrestrial visitors are violating human rights with the complicity of government agencies. Greer laments that: "The facile acceptance of every story as true – no matter how dangerously xenophobic – is irresponsible and can only serve the agenda of those who wish to see the populace dis-informed, panicked and cowed into eventually accepting a military, space-based solution to the ET problem."

He further argues that trying to distinguish between different categories of extraterrestrial visitors to discern their motivations and activities is a form of racism. He claims: "Today, we see racist appellations applied to certain alleged ET groups – The Grays! The Reptilians! The Tall White Ones! Must we go down this tired, dirty path again? Must we replay the sordid history of human racism, prejudice, and xenophobia as we begin our first steps towards the stars?"

Unfortunately, Greer overlooks the solid research data that points to as many as 60 or more different extraterrestrial races actively interacting with or monitoring Earth. This data is supported by credible whistleblowers such as Clifford Stone and Robert Dean.

To conclude that all extraterrestrial visitors are uniform in their benign activities and motivations is greatly mistaken, and it appears Greer wishes to assert such a fallacious view on the general public and use his status to punish or intimidate researchers arguing a contrary position. I have presented my research concerning the motivations and activities of different extraterrestrial visitors and their varying degrees of involvement in covert government agreements in a 17,000 word report at:


The data is impressive and credible, and cannot be simply dismissed by a strongly worded rhetorical flourish of 1400 words as evidenced in Greer's May 2 statement. While I respect the important work Dr Greer has done through the Disclosure Project in encouraging many credible whistleblowers to come forward, I disagree both with his research method and his conclusions.

Greer claims with regard to my research that: "The facile acceptance of every story as true- no matter how dangerously xenophobic – is irresponsible and can only serve the agenda of those who wish to see the populace dis-informed, panicked and cowed into eventually accepting a military, space-based solution to the ET problem."

Greer's opinion here greatly distorts the data presented by several of his own Disclosure Project witnesses as explained above, in addition to the work of many other whistleblowers, researchers and witnesses, which are supported to varying degrees by available documentation. I certainly don't accept all data concerning alleged abuses by extraterrestrial visitors, but conclude that there exists credible and substantiated data supporting this conclusion.

Rather than get into an acrimonious turf war over what can and can't be said or accepted in exopolitics research, I invite Dr Greer to respond to my criticisms of his research method so I and the general public can gain a more accurate picture of the true motivations and activities of extraterrestrial visitors.

I think a scholarly debate over the pros and cons concerning the data pointing to the varied motivations and activities of extraterrestrial visitors, and their alleged agreements with covert government agencies is highly valuable. Greer dismisses those holding contrary views on alleged extraterrestrial abuses or covert agreements as xenophobic, racist, and supporting military solutions to extraterrestrial visitation.

This strikes me as a form of political spin or "exospin," that replicates methods used by the mouthpieces of repressive regimes such as Mr Irawan Abidin of the former Suharto government in Indonesia. I contend that exopolitics is the scholarly analysis of all credible data concerning the extraterrestrial presence, not a highly selective approach that supports a preconceived conclusion of only advanced benign extraterrestrial visitors to our planet. The latter is not objective exopolitical scholarship, but exospin of the most disingenuous kind.

Event from the Canadian Past Presages Current Disclosure Activities

St. Paul, Alberta, Canada gets it right in 1967. The rest of the world is still trying.

In 1967, Hon. Paul Hellyer inaugurated St. Paul, Alberta's UFO landing pad that contained a profound message of peace, in retrospect (see below).

At the time, he did not realize that he would make history with his public stand on UFOs 38 years later. Mr. Hellyer served as Minister of National Defense in the 1963-1967 cabinet of Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson who won a Nobel Peace Prize.

St. Paul, UFO Landing Pad When communities commemorate the past, they often choose to look into the future for inspiration in constructing their tributes. Such was the case with St. Paul in 1966-67 when the town began its preparations for the celebration of Canada’s centennial. While the town gained prestige in 1964 by completing the first major Centennial Project in Canada, the St. Paul Recreation Centre, it was a venture of another kind that would capture the imagination of Canadians. Inspired in part by a project initiated by the Canadian government to encourage communities to build centennial monuments, St. Paul took a unique approach to building their largest Centennial project. Instead of a statue or a park, they constructed something much more extraordinary—the world’s first UFO landing pad. The project was the brainchild of W.R. Treleaven of Hamilton, Ontario and Ken Reed of Calgary. Promotion of the new landmark was assumed by the St. Paul Centennial Committee.

The 130 ton concrete landing pad was erected near the main entrance to the recreation grounds on land donated by the town of St. Paul. In the spirit of the Canadian Centennial, a time capsule was sealed into the backstop, with letters addressed to Canadians from Ernest Manning, the mayor of St. Paul, and the president of the St. Paul Chamber of Commerce. The capsule will be unearthed in 2067. Likewise, engraved on a dedication plaque is the following statement:



"Republic of St. Paul (Stargate Alpha). The area under the world’s first UFO Landing Pad was designated international by the Town of St. Paul as a symbol of our faith that mankind will maintain the outer universe free from national wars and strife. That future travel in space will be safe for all intergalactic beings. All visitors from Earth or otherwise are welcome to this territory and to the Town of St. Paul."

The project garnered much attention from the Canadian government. The Honourable Grant MacEwan, then Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, helped break ground in 1967. Likewise, in a grand display, the Minister of National Defence, The Honourable Paul Hellyer, arrived by helicopter for the official opening ceremonies.

In total the final cost of the peculiar project was $11,000, with construction and materials donated by local companies. The 1990s saw the addition of a Tourist Information Centre and UFO Interpretive Display that includes photos of alleged UFOs, crop circles and other unexplained phenomenon. Today, the site attracts visitors from around the world, and was recently the site of an international UFO conference in 2000. At the top of the list of famous visitors to the site are Queen Elizabeth II and Mother Theresa.

National Post Article Puts Paul Hellyer
Comments on Canada’s Election Campaign Political Radar Screen
Toronto Ontario, December 1, 2005

Has Paul Hellyer grabbed hold of the Canadian election campaign agenda? According to the Dec 1, 2005 issue of the National Post – he has.

It appears that the Prime Minister’s Office and the Office of the Leader of the Opposition are indeed now fully aware of the import and politically sensitive nature of the comments made by Paul Hellyer concerning the need for Parliamentary hearings into the Extraterrestrial issue and the need to keep space free of weapons.

The National Post, a respected Canadian national newspaper owned by CanWest Publications, covers this story in its December 1, 2005 issue.

Scott Feschuk, a Paul Martin speech writer, can now be credited with making the Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, its pursuit of Parliamentary hearings and disclosure about the presence of Extraterrestrials viable issues in the 2005- 2006 Canadian election campaign.

The National Post article quotes Mr. Feschuk, "People keep saying this campaign is a carbon copy of the 2004 election. But that's not true," Feschuk continues, "Stephen Harper has a right handsome new hairstyle. Paul Hellyer has grabbed hold of the campaign agenda…”

The controversial profile that the Extraterrestrial issue has assumed in the election campaign now indicates that political leaders, speech writers and those running for office in the election are aware of the ET issue.

By nature of an inadvertent campaign comment by a candidate and a misinterpretation between Omni Television viewers and readers of the once popular OMNI science magazine, the Extraterrestrial issue is now on the radar screen for politicians and voters to assimilate and assess.

The nature of this episode in an election campaign, however seemingly innocuous, indicates that this issue has a peculiar way of surfacing in the most unexpected places. The ET issue has a sustained equilibrium about itself – it will not go a way. It has now entered an election campaign of a major G7 country.

The result: Paul Hellyer’s contribution to the ET debate and his convictions against the weaponization of space are now part of the Canadian political scene.

Former Canadian Minister of Defense Asks Canadian Parliament to Hold Hearings on Relations With Alien "ET" Civilizations
Toronto ON November 30, 2005

See full release at: http://www.prweb.com/releases/2005/11/prweb314382.htm 


The Edmonton SUN has acknowledged that three NGOs have the support of former Minister of National Defense as he publicly calls for action by Parliament to hold public hearings on Exopolitics known as - relations with extraterrestrials.

This SUN NEWS SERVICES release is the first Canadian national press agency to recognize the on-going initiative by NGOs Exopolitics Toronto, ICIS (Institute for Co-operation in Space) and the Disclosure Project that seeks to delineate the national policy implications of peaceful relations with off-world civilizations that have been visiting the Earth as demonstrated by the phenomenon known as UFOs (unidentified flying objects).

At last September’s SYMPOSIUM ON UFO DISCLOSURE at U of T’s Convocation Hall Mr. Hellyer initiated his co-operation with Exopolitics Toronto and ICIS (Institute for Co-operation in Space) to proclaim the need for open dialogue on this issue by the Canadian government and media. Since then a formal application has been forwarded by Exopolitics Toronto and ICIS (Institute for Co-operation in Space) to the Canadian Senate’s Standing Committee on National Defense and Security for public hearings on this matter.

As a former Cabinet Minister, Mr. Hellyer’s involvement and concern demonstrate the dramatically deleterious effects of the development and use of space based weapons against ethical and otherwise peaceful off-world civilizations. Their development and use could spark an incident resulting in an unnecessary intergalactic conflict. Significant immediacy exists for a serious and sober investigation of policy implications for Canada.

In order to move this issue to the forefront of the media your co-operation and consideration of this issue is vital.

ZlandCommunications and Exopolitics Toronto are in possession of documents which clearly show Canadian NORAD installations register unknown targets on their radar; CF-16 jets are scrambled and in fact chase UFO’s of defined metallic shape and size moving at speeds of over 10,000 mph. These events, if investigated and released to the public through probative journalism, will compel government leaders to call for investigations. These occurrences by the way are replicated daily by other government military operations. See Brazilian military release of information on UFO documents to journalists.

If NORAD jets today are targeting these craft in our airspace it would not be conjecture to assume a space based weapons program would be used in an attempt disable or destroy an ET vehicle.

Now is the time to react to this issue as an election campaign begins.

Now is the time to publicly request that the Canadian government hold open hearings on this issue.

Now is the time to ask each party leader to state his position on space based weapons and the influence they may have on ethical extraterrestrial civilizations who may be piloting these non-threatening craft in our air space.

All of the converging lines of evidence are present for escalating this matter into a national issue for every Canadian during the election campaign.

Why is this important?

Since the converging lines of evidence point to the fact that ET craft are visiting our planet from solar systems light years away, they must then possess energy systems far more sophisticated than the fossil fuels currently used on the planet today. Fossil fuels of all kinds give rise to deteriorating ozone layers and pollution contributing to global warming. Therefore government knowledge of these craft and their extraterrestrial nature indicate a compelling need to investigate how these new forms of energy that are well known by government security agencies and other unacknowledged arms of government, can be used to solve our current energy dilemma.

In essence the information contained behind the sophisticated levels of secrecy includes the knowledge that arcane energy sources which, if imbedded into our medical and technological industries, could resolve the current unending cycle of poverty and social and economic inequity on the planet.

In the face of intense of geo-political pressure to retain oil as the standard of energy consumption, technological development of alternate fuels has been economically and ideologically repressed by the oil and cash rich nations of the world. Why has development of solar energy for example, so abundant in most Third World countries been put out of reach if not sabotaged by the United States and multinational corporations?

The answer is: oil.

There is an alternative; one that will create a huge paradigm shift socially, economically and historically; one that the media and journalists have avoided for too long.

How can this be overcome?

Simply by journalists acknowledging issues of an extraterrestrial nature exist as stated by Mr. Hellyer and if viewed in its totality, all evidence indicates we are being visited by off-world civilizations. Preparation for contact is the next stage. The evidence is all there.

Why will this issue not go away? The simple answer is: Because it is true!

The more complex answer is because any issue of substance, authenticity and of a verifiable compelling nature will never fade into obscurity. Some journalists will continue to ignore the issue. But let these journalists be aware that one day, very, very soon, every writer on this planet, every electronic news organization will be scrambling for details on the highly intricate and historical nature of the UFO/ET issue. Best now to get the facts before the competition for them becomes so intense they will be at a premium.

Who will get the inside track?

At this point only Exopolitics Toronto and ICIS have the factual documentation. No other North American organization or research group exists. Get the facts now. Get them straight to begin with. Bring this issue into the forum of public and political debate.

Help bring about Senate hearings so the country and indeed the world can hear the most compelling, yet untold story in history.

The following media have begun coverage of the call for open hearings: http://news.yahoo.com/s/prweb/20051124/bs_prweb/prweb314382_1

CBC’s Peter Gzowski Examines Alien Abductions in Canada
(1986 Morningside Interview)

Toronto Ontario November 30, 2005 - In October of 1986 Peter Gzowski, then host of Morningside, delved boldly into the UFO related phenomenon of alien abductions. What is interesting about this interview is that it took place during a time when the phenomenon was just in its infancy of understanding. Abduction specialist Budd Hopkins and Canadian UFO expert Stanton T. Friedman join Peter as he conducts his interview of “Charlotte Brown” an abductee who reluctantly decided to come forward to talk about her experiences.

Disturbing yet enlightening information is uncovered by Peter’s inimitable style and sensitivity towards one of the most misunderstood and hauntingly authentic phenomenon of our times.

Almost 20 years later, and now in the context of the current media interest in the UFO phenomenon and the call for Parliamentary hearings by Exopolitics Toronto and the Institute for Co-operation in Space into the Extraterrestrial issue, Peter Gzowski’s interview prophetically addressed the issue of the on-going government UFO cover-up, otherwise known as the Cosmic Watergate in the United States as well as the issue of alien abductions.

The challenge then today is for journalist to review and investigate the vast amount of information available to reach a deeper understanding of the political as well as the phenomenological nature of the UFO/ET experience. Exopolitics Toronto is open to making available to media representatives briefing sessions at anytime on this issue.

The 24 minute audio clip URL of the interview is listed below for your investigation and educational purposes.

EDMONTON SUN: "Senate pressured to hold hearings on ET"
November 26, 2005


A number of groups have joined forces with former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer in urging Parliament to hold public hearings on 'exopolitics' - or relations with extraterrestrials (ETs).

Three non-governmental organizations (NGOs) were reacting to a speech made by Hellyer in September in Toronto in which he warned that "UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head.''

Hellyer said he is concerned the United States is preparing weapons for use against the aliens and could get the whole world into an "intergalactic war.'' According to Hellyer, the Americans' interest in returning to the moon is in part based on the desire to build a forward military base there.

The three organizations backing Hellyer's request for hearings are the Institute for Co-operation in Space (ICIS), the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium and the Disclosure Project, a U.S.-based organization that has assembled high-level military-intelligence witnesses of a possible ET presence.

Earlier this month, the Senate replied to the ICIS that their full agenda precluded any hearings in the near future on ET issues.

"That does not deter us," one spokesman for the NGOs said, "We are going ahead with our request to Prime Minister Paul Martin and the official Opposition leaders in the House of Commons now, and we will re-apply to the Senate of Canada in early 2006.

"Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth.''

Former Canadian Minister Of Defense Asks Canadian Parliament Asked To Hold Hearings On Relations With Alien "Et" Civilizations
Toronto Ontario - November 25, 2005

 A former Canadian Minister of Defense has joined forces with three Non-governmental organizations to ask the Parliament of Canada to hold public hearings on with Alien “ET” Civilizations. Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defense Minister from 1963-67 under Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prime Minister Lester Pearson, publicly stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head." Hellyer warned, "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. Mr. Hellyer went on to say, "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something." “Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth,” a spokesperson for the Non-Governmental Organizations stated. “Our Canadian government needs to openly address these important issues of the possible deployment of weapons in outer space and war plans against ethical Extraterrestrial societies.”

OTTAWA, CANADA (PRWEB) November 24, 2005 -- A former Canadian Minister of Defense and Deputy Prime Minister under Pierre Trudeau has joined forces with three Non-governmental organizations to ask the Parliament of Canada to hold public hearings on Exopolitics -- relations with “ETs.”

By “ETs,” Mr. Hellyer and these organizations mean ethical, advanced extraterrestrial civilizations that may now be visiting Earth.

On September 25, 2005, in a startling speech at the University of Toronto that caught the attention of mainstream newspapers and magazines, Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defense Minister from 1963-67 under Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Prime Minister Lester Pearson, publicly stated: "UFOs, are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head."

Mr. Hellyer went on to say, "I'm so concerned about what the consequences might be of starting an intergalactic war, that I just think I had to say something."

Hellyer revealed, "The secrecy involved in all matters pertaining to the Roswell incident was unparalleled. The classification was, from the outset, above top secret, so the vast majority of U.S. officials and politicians, let alone a mere allied minister of defense, were never in-the-loop."

Hellyer warned, "The United States military are preparing weapons which could be used against the aliens, and they could get us into an intergalactic war without us ever having any warning. He stated, "The Bush administration has finally agreed to let the military build a forward base on the moon, which will put them in a better position to keep track of the goings and comings of the visitors from space, and to shoot at them, if they so decide."

Hellyer’s speech ended with a standing ovation. He said, "The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy, and let the truth emerge, so there can be a real and informed debate, about one of the most important problems facing our planet today."

Three Non-governmental organizations took Hellyer’s words to heart, and approached Canada’s Parliament in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, to hold public hearings on a possible ET presence, and what Canada should do. The Canadian Senate, which is an appointed body, has held objective, well-regarded hearings and issued reports on controversial issues such as same-sex marriage and medical marijuana,

On October 20, 2005, the Institute for Cooperation in Space requested Canadian Senator Colin Kenny, Senator, Chair of The Senate Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defense, “schedule public hearings on the Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, so that witnesses such as the Hon. Paul Hellyer, and Canadian-connected high level military-intelligence, NORAD-connected, scientific, and governmental witnesses facilitated by the Disclosure Project and by the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium can present compelling evidence, testimony, and Public Policy recommendations.”

The Non-governmental organizations seeking Parliament hearings include Canada-based Toronto Exopolitics Symposium, which organized the University of Toronto Symposium at which Mr. Hellyer spoke.

The Disclosure Project, a U.S.– based organization that has assembled high level military-intelligence witnesses of a possible ET presence, is also one of the organizations seeking Canadian Parliament hearings.

Vancouver-based Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), whose International Director headed a proposed 1977 Extraterrestrial Communication Study for the White House of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who himself has publicly reported a 1969 Close Encounter of the First Kind with a UFO, filed the original request for Canadian Parliament hearings.

The Canadian Exopolitics Initiative, presented by the organizations to a Senate Committee panel hearing in Winnipeg, Canada, on March 10, 2005, proposes that the Government of Canada undertake a Decade of Contact.

The proposed Decade of Contact is “a 10-year process of formal, funded public education, scientific research, educational curricula development and implementation, strategic planning, community activity, and public outreach concerning our terrestrial society’s full cultural, political, social, legal, and governmental communication and public interest diplomacy with advanced, ethical Off-Planet cultures now visiting Earth.”

Canada has a long history of opposing the basing of weapons in Outer Space. On September 22, 2004 Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin declared to the U.N. General Assembly,” "Space is our final frontier. It has always captured our imagination. What a tragedy it would be if space became one big weapons arsenal and the scene of a new arms race.

Martin stated, "In 1967, the United Nations agreed that weapons of mass destruction must not be based in space. The time has come to extend this ban to all weapons..."

In May, 2003, speaking before the Canadian House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defense and Veterans Affairs, former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Lloyd Axworthy, stated “Washington's offer to Canada is not an invitation to join America under a protective shield, but it presents a global security doctrine that violates Canadian values on many levels."

Axworthy concluded, “There should be an uncompromising commitment to preventing the placement of weapons in space.”

On February 24, 2005, Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin made official Canada's decision not to take part in the U.S government’s Ballistic Missile Defense program.

Paul Hellyer, who now supports Canadian Parliament hearings on relations with ETs, on May 15, 2003, stated in Toronto’s Globe & Mail newspaper, “Canada should accept the long-standing invitation of U.S. Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio to launch a conference to seek approval of an international treaty to ban weapons in space. That would be a positive Canadian contribution toward a more peaceful world.”

In early November 2005, the Canadian Senate wrote ICIS, indicating the Senate Committee could not hold hearings on ETs in 2005, because of their already crowded schedule.

“That does not deter us,” one spokesperson for the Non-governmental organizations said, “We are going ahead with our request to Prime Minister Paul Martin and the official opposition leaders in the House of Commons now, and we will re-apply with the Senate of Canada in early 2006.”

“Time is on the side of open disclosure that there are ethical Extraterrestrial civilizations visiting Earth,” The spokesperson stated. “Our Canadian government needs to openly address these important issues of the possible deployment of weapons in outer space and war plans against ethical ET societies.”

Canadian Disclosure Spreads:
Paul Hellyer on TV Ontario's BIG IDEAS

Toronto Ontario - November 8, 2005 -- TV Ontario’s acclaimed and thought-provoking program BIG IDEAS will present the address by former Minister of National Defense Paul Hellyer given at the Symposium on UFO Disclosure at U of T’s Convocation Hall this passed September.

TVO’s BIG IDEAS will air the Hellyer address beginning at 1:55 pm on Saturday November 12, 2005. The address will be re-broadcast at the same time on Sunday November 13, 2005.

TVO’s BIG IDEAS is in its fifth season of presenting provocative ideas that shape public debate.

The current lecture series on BIG IDEAS will feature Paul Hellyer the former Canadian Minister of National Defense as he presents his views on:

The policy implications and social impact of the 58 year-old UFO/ET cover-up, Peaceful contact with off-world civilizations, His perspective on the weaponization of space by the American government and its ultimate effect on the national security and defense of Canada, His assessment of the US military retrieval of technologies obtained from the crash site of an extraterrestrial craft near Roswell New Mexico in 1947, and The media’s newly acquired and unfolding responsibility to investigate information surrounding this issue of national security.

Not only will you hear Mr. Hellyer speak of his days in office but of his recent conversation with a retired United States Air Force General who stated, “It is all true and more…”

The political and social impact of such a broadcast aired by a Canadian provincial government television channel as presented by a former Canadian Cabinet Minister will no doubt be examined with great interest and be measured carefully today and in the future by journalists, politicians and members of the public.

This UFO/ET disclosure address and its broadcast sets in motion the most compelling convergence of politics, government and journalism available anywhere on this issue. Mr. Hellyer’s dramatic testimony and his acknowledgement that the UFO/ET issue is genuine, now provide the media and relevant Canadian government oversight committees with the necessary evidence and reliable foundations upon which to build their investigations.

Such investigations by Canadian media and government will permit Canada to break ranks with an American media and government staunchly enforcing an embargo on the truth behind the authenticity of the UFO/ET issue. Canada may then assume its own path towards a viable policy of understanding the nature and implications of contact with off-world civilizations visiting the planet.

Fundamentally this TV Ontario presentation of Mr. Hellyer’s address and the work done by Exopolitics Toronto at its recent symposium sends a clear message and invitation to Canadian media as well as to the government of Canada and its standing committees on National Defense and Security to work together in a co-operative manner to assess the nature of the UFO/ET presence and the threat posed to them and to our planet by the use of weapons in space.

Furthermore investigation by the media or government committees will reveal the validity of on-going NORAD Significant Event Reports indicating CF-18 jets have tracked and chased uncorrelated targets of unknown origin that perform intelligent flight maneuvers at speeds unattainable by conventional aircraft. These NORAD reports, RCMP officer reports and air traffic control reports acquired through Access to Information Act are in the possession of ZlandCommunications and can be made available upon request.

Witness history in the making on Canadian television; Saturday Nov 12 or on Sunday Nov 13 at 1:55 pm.

(NOTE: BIG IDEAS begins at 1:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays – The Hellyer address begins at 1:55 pm. There is also a re-broadcast of BIG IDEAS at 2:00 am on Sunday.)

Minister of National Defense under Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson; Deputy Prime Minister of Canada under Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau

Alfred Lambremont Webre’s odyssey into the realm of life in the vast Universe surrounding Planet Earth is indeed a fascinating journey if you read it with an open mind. He postulates a Universe that includes many planets sustaining life more advanced than our own – all subject to universal governance based on the rule of law.

Earth, he suggests, is an exception. Rather than being the center of the Universe, as our ancestors believed, we are the black sheep of the interplanetary community. We have been “quarantined” and isolated from the “highly organized, interplanetary, inter-galactic multidimensional Universe society,” presumably because our culture has been strongly influenced by rogue planetary leadership personified in the story of the Garden of Eden.

To end the “quarantine,” Earthlings must advance morally and spiritually, while re-establishing connection with inter-planetary society. Until recently, we didn’t have the technology to do the latter, but increasingly we do. Meanwhile, visits from our extra-planetary neighbors present opportunities for peaceful communication and collaboration.

Webre posits that some UFOs are natural phenomena, while some are top-secret military aircraft, but that others are quite real. He maintains that knowledge of their existence is being suppressed by military intelligence organizations in the five English-speaking countries known as the so-called “Echelon” group – the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

For me, this is the least credible of the author’s assertions. I strongly suspect that the US military holds information it has not revealed, but I very much doubt that it has shared this knowledge with its intelligence partners – certainly not Canada. The US only shares information with other governments when it is in its own best interests to do so.

Webre states that the alleged disinformation campaign about UFOs is due to the close relationship between the military and industry, the so called “military-industrial complex” that President Dwight David Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address. They are the chief beneficiaries of the oil economy. Tapping into the knowledge of the Universe would ultimately lead us to higher forms of energy that would be ecologically sustainable, but that would make the oil economy irrelevant.

God-fearing people will be relieved to know that there is nothing in Webre’s thesis, despite the considerable mind-stretch, that denies their fundamental beliefs. If there were, I would not be a party to it. Webre states, “Reunion with Universe civilizations will bring a closer relationship with God. The most advanced scientific reality in all creation is that God is Source.”

To turn us in the direction of re-unification with the rest of creation the author is proposing a “Decade of Contact” – an “era of openness, public hearings, publicly funded research, and education about extraterrestrial reality.” That could be just the antidote the world needs to end its greed driven, power-centered madness.

Summary Information about the Symposium
by Stephen Bassett

Paradigm Research Group Executive Director, Stephen Bassett (US), gave the closing Keynote Presentation at Exopolitics Toronto: A Symposium on UFO Disclosure and Planetary Directions at the University of Toronto's Convocation Hall on September 25.

Other speakers included historian, Richard Dolan (US); researcher/journalist Paola Harris (Italy); researcher Stanton Friedman (Canada) and, notably, Canadian political figure, Paul Hellyer. All speakers addressed the symposium's theme: why is information concerning extraterrestrial-related phenomena and government involvement with these issues still being withheld from the public by specific western nations and what are the implications?

Hellyer, 82, has had a long and varied career with particular emphasis on national defense. He held a number of positions culminating in his appointment as Minister of Defense under Lester Pearson. By participating in the Toronto Exopolitics Symposium, Mr. Hellyer joins a growing list of well known political and military figures around the world, active or retired, who have openly questioned the appropriateness of the response by the United States Government to this most profound and controversial issue. This list includes President Clinton's Chief of Staff, John Podesta; President Jimmy Carter; New Mexico Governor, Bill Richardson; the late British Admiral Lord Hill-Norton; Astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell; the late astronaut, Gordon Cooper; French Air Force General Denis Letty; then Michigan Congressman Gerald Ford; and the late New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff as well as many lesser known career military and agency personnel - U.S. and foreign.

As quoted on the Maclean's Magazine website, www.macleans.ca, Hellyer stated, "I believe that UFOs are real. I'll talk about that a little bit and a bit about the fantastic cover-up of the United States government and also a little bit of the fallout from the wreckage, by that I mean the material discoveries we have made and how they've been applied to our technology."

Richard Dolan is the author of UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Cover-up, 1947-1973 and Paola Harris is the author of Connecting the Dots: Making Sense of the UFO Phenomenon. Stanton Friedman has authored several books, including Crash at Corona and Top Secret/MAJIC.

Keynote presenter Bassett is arguably the leading advocate in the world for ending the 58-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and the planet earth. He is a political activist, founder of the Paradigm Research Group, Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC), author of the Paradigm Clock website, and a political columnist and commentator.
