The UFO briefing was given to the Minister of National Defense of Canada prior to the Landmark US Public Report: Documents

According to a newly obtained document, the former Minister of National Defense of Canada was briefed on UFOs by his department last year before the US intelligence report on this topic was published.

PowerPoint presentation The title, entitled “Unidentified Flying Objects (UAPs): Overview of MNDs,” states that “about 1,000 UFO sightings are reported each year in Canada.”

It shows two recent examples, including an example dated May 9, 2021, in which Delta Boeing 737-900, cruising at 39,000 feet, tells air traffic controllers “moving from right to left. I asked about “traffic far above”.

Briefings and related email communications from the Ministry of Defense (DND) were obtained by CTV News through access to information requests and published on May 6.

The uncategorized briefing does not reveal breakthrough information as it focuses on reporting mechanisms that have been used with relevant agencies for many years.

Former Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan, then Chief of Staff, demanded a briefing before US intelligence released a report on the issue.

“The imminent disclosure of information in the United States should be expected to prompt questions with domestic and perhaps defense-related implications, given its relationship with DoD. [Department of Defense] George Young emailed Deputy Secretary of Defense Jody Thomas and Deputy Secretary of Defense Wayne Eyre.

“In anticipation of this, I believe it is wise to demand a full briefing from Minister Sajan from a Canadian perspective on this issue.”

In June 2021, the National Intelligence Service (ODNI), which oversees US intelligence, published its report, “Preliminary Assessment: Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.”

The Report Is conservative in nature and states that “the limited amount of quality reports of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) hinders the ability to draw firm conclusions about the nature or intent of UAPs.” Is connected to.

The report points out that some UAPs appear to demonstrate advanced technology.

“Some UAPs should remain stationary in the wind over the wind, move against the wind, steer suddenly, or move at considerable speed without identifiable propulsion. I saw.”

It also raises national security concerns “if they are a foreign adversary gathering platform or provide evidence that potential adversaries have developed either breakthrough or disruptive technology.” bottom.

As this topic has gained a lot of attention and stigma in recent years, the US House of Representatives Intelligence Subcommittee is: Holding The hearing on UFOs on May 17th is the first time in more than half a century.

America Created A briefing to Sajan, a 2020 task force to better collect and analyze information about UFO phenomena and holding hearings, suggests that the Canadian government is lagging behind in terms of interest. increase.

According to the briefing, NAV Canada, which operates Canada’s civil aviation navigation system, is responsible for managing UAP-related reports. Cases of unidentifiable events are then reported via Communication Directives (CIRVIS) for reporting vital intelligence sightings and passed to Canadian non-government UFO researcher Chris Lutkowski.

Rutkowksi, a prominent ufologist who also serves as a communications officer at the University of Manitoba, comment In a CTV News article on UFO briefings to DND on his LinkedIn page, he said, “I was asked to provide information about Canadian UFOs for a briefing to the Defense Minister.”

Rutkowski Canadian UFO Survey Create a website, evaluate what is described and what is not, and produce a report on the number of sightings per year.

According to the briefing, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the National Research Council’s research partnership on UFOs broke up in 1995, and reports of “non-weather sightings” began to be directed to Rutkowski.

In 2000, Rutkowski began receiving all UFO-related reports from DND and Transport Canada, and the University of Manitoba now “does not fund Canadian UFO research, but Rutkowski for future academic research. We are helping to archive his files. “

The Ministry of Transport also maintains a database of aviation accidents, and NAV Canada provides 80% of the reports.

One of such Report A Sky Regional Airlines plane traveling from Montreal to Toronto, submitted as a potential UFO in May 2016, reports that it “flighted around an unidentified flying object, rounded in shape, at a speed of approximately 300 kts.” bottom.
