It's Not Exactly The Disclosure Project....

The following is from the Government Of Canada News Centre: The Government of Canada Supports Shag Harbour Incident Society SHAG HARBOUR, Nova Scotia, August 5, 2008 - Residents and visitors to Shag Harbour will have the opportunity to take part in the Shag Harbour Incident Festival, thanks to an investment by the Government of Canada. Gerald Keddy, Member of Parliament (South Shore-St. Margaret's), on behalf of the Honourable Josée Verner, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Status of Women and Minister for La Francophonie, today announced funding for the Shag Harbour Incident Society. Funding of $2,000 will help the Society organize the Shag Harbour Incident Festival, which will commemorate the famous Shag Harbour Incident, a historical and well documented sighting of an unidentified flying object in the skies above Shag Harbour which later crashed in nearby waters. Since the sighting in 1967, the area has attracted numerous visitors and researchers. Background from On This Day: 1967 - At 11:20 p.m. Atlantic Daylight Time at least one and most likely two separate UFOs dove or crashed into the ocean near Bon Portage Island, in the area of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, Canada. There were at least a dozen independent witnesses to the event. Canadian Navy divers searched the area for three days but found nothing. This followed a series of six UFO sightings across Quebec and Nova Scotia beginning at 7:19 p.m., when Air Canada Captain Pierre Guy Charbonneau, flying between Sherbrooke and St. Jean, sighted an orange rectangular object followed by a series of smaller lights, followed by a sizeable explosion near the large object that turned into a big white ball-shaped cloud. The cloud turned red, then violet, and then blue. Two minutes later there was another explosion that turned into a second sphere which was orange in color. Like the first one it too eventually faded to blue. The smaller lights on the "kite tail" broke formation with the rectangular object and began to dance around the spheres like fireflies.

Sanderson, Invisible Residents, pp. 44-45; Don Ledger & Chris Styles, Dark Object: The world's only government documented UFO crash, pp. 9-13; 28-50, 151-162). Considering the level of disclosure by the governments of France, Brasil, Mexico, England and too many others to mention, it's good to see our government lend some legitamacy to the question of whether or not we're alone in the universe. If you can take a minute to consider that respected people such as Sen Barry Goldwater, Dr Edgar Mitchell; Astronauts L Gordon Cooper, John Glenn and Neil Armstrong; Dr Wernher von Braun, Major Florenz Mansmann, ScO Clark C. McClelland and too many others to mention have already given us a pretty definitive answer to that question, then perhaps it's time for the governments of America and Canada to follow suit. h/t National Newswatch
