Exopolitical Comment # 38 - Former Canadian Defense Minister Speaks
Out on Extraterrestrial Visitors & Government Secrecy

 On September 25, 2005, Hon Paul Hellyer, the former Canadian Minister
for National Defense gave a speech in Toronto at an event titled:
"Exopolitics Toronto: A Symposium on UFO Disclosure and Planetary
Direction" . Hellyer described his time
as Minister for Defense from 1963-1967 where the occasional UFO
sighting report crossed his desk. He claims to never have had time for
what he considered to be a "flight of fancy", but nevertheless
retained an interest in the UFO phenomenon. While Minister for
Defense, he was guest of honor at the opening of the world's first UFO
landing pad at Alberta, Canada in 1967. He thought it an innovative
idea from a progressive Canadian community willing to pay for his
helicopter ride, but did not give much thought to UFOs as having
serious policy implications. He also describes a private UFO sighting
he later had with family and guests, but once again attributed it to a
'flight of fancy' rather than anything having serious policy

Hellyer's position on UFOs dramatically changed after watching the
late Peter Jennings documentary special, "Seeing is Believing" in
February 2005. Hellyer decided to read a book that had been idly
sitting on his book shelf for two years. Philip Corso's, The Day After
Roswell, sparked intense interest for Hellyer in terms of its policy
implications. Corso named real people, institutions and events in his
book that could be checked. Intrigued by the policy implications,
Hellyer decided to confirm whether Corso's book was real or a "work of
fiction". He contacted a retired United States Air Force General and
spoke to him directly to verify Corso's claims. The unnamed General
simply said: "every word is true and more". Hellyer then proceeded to
discuss the "and more ^" with the general and claimed he was told
remarkable things concerning UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis
that interplanetary visitors have been here since at least 1947.
 Finally convinced that the UFO phenomenon was real Hellyer decided to
come forward and speak at Exopolitics Toronto about some of the "most
profoundly important policy questions that must be addressed." (for
speech go to:  The policy questions
Hellyer addressed in his talk are both profound and vitally important
for citizens of every nation of Earth.

First, Hellyer claimed that evidence concerning UFOs is the "greatest
and most successful cover up in the history of the world". He
confirmed that senior political officials even at the rank of Minister
of Defense, a position he himself occupied, are simply out of the loop
when it comes to information concerning UFOs and visiting
extraterrestrials. From a democratic perspective, that raises many
concerns about oversight, transparency and accountability of those in
control of the information, technology and projects concerning the
extraterrestrial visitors.

A second profound policy question concerns the designation by the U.S.
military of visiting extraterrestrials as an 'enemy'. According to
Hellyer, this had led to the development of "laser and particle guns
to the point that they can be used against the visitors from space."
It is this targeting of visiting extraterrestrials that concerns
Hellyer, and he asks "is it wise to spend so much time and money to
build weapon systems to rid the skies of alien visitors?" Hellyer
poignantly raises the key policy question: "Are they really enemies or
merely legitimate explorers from afar?" Hellyer's question raises
profound importance in understanding the relationship between visiting
extraterrestrial civilizations and world peace.

The third policy question arose from the recent decision by President
Bush to build a base on the moon. Hellyer believes this is the
activation of a plan first launched by Col Corso's mentor, Lt General
Arthur Trudeau to build a base from which visiting extraterrestrials
could be monitored and possibly targeted as they approach the Earth.
Hellyer outlined his opposition to the weaponization of space,
something that the liberal government of Canada is currently opposed
to. The weaponization of space remains a key policy issue clearly has
profound policy issues from the perspective of extraterrestrial
visitors to Earth.

Finally, Hellyer declared that the "time has come to lift the veil of
secrecy" and to have an "informed debate about a problem that doesn't
officially exist." Understanding the evidence concerning the UFO
phenomenon is vital to fully preparing citizens around the world for
the truth concerning extraterrestrials, despite official denial and
secrecy by those "in the loop". He calls for major global initiatives
to fully prepare global citizenry for the truth. He endorses a
position taken by key exopolitical researchers such as Alfred Webre to
prepare for a "Decade of Contact" where humanity is prepared for the
truth about extraterrestrial visitors through informed debate and

Paul Hellyer is the first senior politician to openly come out and
declare the truth about the extraterrestrial presence. He is blazing a
trail that many other senior politicians are destined to take. It will
be wise if the world's senior politicians quickly learn more about
this remarkable Canadian statesman and heed his important advise about
data on extraterrestrial visitors and the "profoundly important policy
questions that must be addressed."
