A former Canadian defence minister, who has accused world powers of concealing the presence of aliens on earth, is calling on the government to release what he believes is hidden information about UFOs.
Paul Hellyer, who served as Canada’s defence minister in the Sixties, was among speakers who urged the government to publicly disclose any such documents, during an event at the University of Calgary on Saturday.
Delivering the keynote speech during the Disclosure Canada Tour at the institution, Mr Hellyer told a 400-strong crowd that “much of the media won’t touch it [the documents]”, CTV Calgary reported.
He continued: “So you just have to keep working away and hope that someday you get a critical mass, and they will say, in one way or another, 'Mr. President or Mr. Prime Minister we want the truth and we want it now because it affects our lives.'”
Over the course of the tour, Mr Hellyer and other speakers appeared in Montreal. Toronot, Calgary and Vancouver in events organised by a group known as Modern Knowledge.
On its website, the group describes itself as a “grassroots platform that assists in creating awareness about important and though provoking subject matter that is not normally discussed in the mainstream."
It goes on to explain that the group uses a blend of “ancient wisdom” and “modern scientific knowledge” to explain and discuss “cutting edge, and sometimes controversial information.”
Mr Hellyer, 91, first spoke out about his belief that governments are concealing an alien presence back in 2005, when he said that UFOs are as prevalent as airplanes in our skies.
