Subject: UFO Author Timothy Good Speaks in Toronto

Author Timothy Good was in Toronto last Tuesday night, speaking
at RCMI (The Royal Canadian Military Institute) a club for
current and retired officers from all branches of the armed

The organising Captain, whose guests we were, was assured by
other board members that "no one was interested in listening to
_that_ stuff". The $39.00 a head dinner & talk tickets sold out
in three weeks.

Sue and I took our seats, tightly packed, with 138 other blazers
and suits in a handsomely panelled dining room at the club, ate
our silver-service dinner and awaited Good's talk.

He nailed his audience. In the first moments he hooked them with
slides of mostly military documents obtained under various
international 'Freedom of Information Acts', many heavily
blanked-out, reports by military and civil pilots, anecdotes of
his conversations with many high-ranking officers working with
governments worldwide and a dry, wry sense of humour.

Good knows his stuff. He delivered information succinctly -
classic 'sound-bite' style. His audience was intensely focused
and deeply interested. The half-hour talk had the room buzzing at
its conclusion. A too brief question period elicited intelligent
questions, with only one 'little green men' yuk.

Later, in the bar, having skirted around one another for over an
hour, we finally met. And talked about Oechsler and Carp (both of
which Good had heavily covered in his writings) and which I,
along with other members of MUFON Ontario, had spent many months
investigating. It transpired that I had been pointed out to him
before dinner and virtually his first words were "You know I was
one of the recipients of 'The Guardian Documents and Video?".

I asked him what he thought of the 'craft' on the tape. He
admitted that he wasn't sure about what it depicted. "And the
documents?", I asked. He snorted. "So, how can the documents
be bogus and the accompanying video be 'real'?" At that point
we were distracted by a couple joining us.

When we picked up again, Good was curious about the two other
'witnesses' to the 'landing' - a doctor (who wasn't available
during our investigation, and the, to use Oechsler's words,
"Canadian Government official" Susan ('Sarah Janille') Gill.
I pointed out that Gill had said a) that it had been raining the
night of the landing (it was actually raining the night before)
and that she could have seen nothing from her property because of
the extremely tall spruce trees blocking her view. See 'Carp' at
the UFO Mind site at:

Good feels that he was used by Oechsler. We agreed that Oechsler
was a champion BS-artist, out to line his pockets who conned
many. He also feels, that both Bobby Rae Inman and Thomas
Stafford were truthful. Inman, Good said, knew that he and
Oechsler were refering to UFOs during a taped conversation which
Good described in Chapter 10 - Cosmic Journey of 'Alien Liason'.


"No matter what or how good the story is, 50% of the people will
believe you, 50% won't.  All you have to care about is the 50%
that will".-- Bob Oechsler, Carp, Ontario, May 10, 1992.
