Re: ZNN NORAD Press Release
Canadian NORAD Jets Chase UFOs

December 5 2013

Dear Honourable Ministers and Members of the House of Commons
and Provincial Legislative Assembly

The press release associated with this briefing document was
posted on Tuesday Nov 19.2013. Since its distribution it has
received over 2000 reads on various web sites and on Google and
Yahoo search engines.


EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The documentation in the press release Canadian NORAD Jets Chase
UFOs unequivocally indicates Canadian NORAD jets have pursued
unknown tracks. The documentation in the NORAD log report
attesting to this is irrefutable. As described in this brief and
as shown in the NORAD log report - contact was made with an
'unknown' which subsequently eluded the CF-18s in question. The
press release and this briefing document also reveal the
existence of pertinent files indicating the Canadian government
has assessed and attempted to sequester the UFO matter as well
as suggest plans be discussed should a 'flying saucer' land on
Canadian soil.


RATIONALE

We are providing this information to elected officials and
members of the press in the interest of clarity and as an
attempt to determine the nature of this specific NORAD incident
and others similar to it. We also submit this information to
establish how ancillary documents in the ZNN press release may
relate to the NORAD incident in question and how this ancillary
documentation indicates the Canadian government has dealt with
craft of unknown origin in the past.

It must be assumed that scrambling jets by NORAD indicates there
has been a possible breach of national security as a result of
an unauthorized incursion into Canadian airspace. It also
appears that elected officials are unaware of this matter.

In this context there appears to be growing concern and
confusion about what scrambled NORAD jets are actually pursuing
- as documented in the NORAD EVENTS STATUS REPORT obtained by
ZNN through the AIA process.

There are a number of ambiguities and inconsistencies in the
assessment and interpretation by the former Minister of Defence,
the Hon. Peter Mackay to ZNN about this incident report - a
report that he was unable to locate and thus unable to read. It
is further disconcerting that - the former Minister of Defence,
the Hon. Peter Mackay - unilaterally dismissed the possibility
of NORAD jets encountering and making contact with 'unknown
tracks' at 35,000 feet in a report that he neither could locate
nor had read.

It becomes clear - upon reading the letter from Minister MacKay
to ZNN that:

a) He stated he was unable to locate the very same document sent
to ZNN by the Department of National Defence in Ottawa, and

b) Because of this inability to locate the NORAD STATUS EVENT
and without having read the document, the Minister then
speculated, or was possibly advised, that what the CF-18 Hornets
were pursuing was either an aircraft without a transponder or a
non-functioning transponder, or a flock of birds. [NOTE: a CF-18
has a maximum speed of 1190 mph - Mach 1.8 up to 40,000 feet.
Ducks and other migratory birds are capable of up to 50 mph. The
Peregrine Falcon can achieve speeds of up to 200 mph in a full
dive. None of theses species can fly at 35,000 ft.]

One must call into question a management system that cannot
provide the Minister with a verified government document within
his own department that was easily obtained by a citizen using
the AIA.

Regrettably - a reading of the entire NORAD document tells a
very different story than that of the Minister's speculations.
One finds a very evocative chronology of events and log entries
that reveal a peculiar encounter between two NORAD jets and
three craft of unknown origin flying at or near supersonic
speeds in straight and level flight. As clearly indicated in the
NORAD log, the unknown crafts (flight size of 3) were able to
out pace an LR-35 jet as well as elude the CF-18s. Therefore it
must be presumed that the unknowns possessed a similar if not
more advanced capacity to fly near or above supersonic speeds.

If the Minister had taken the time to locate the NORAD report he
would have discovered that, in this evocative chronology of
events, the CF-18s did make contact with an unknown or unknowns.
[Log Entry Ref: page three, date index 01/09/12 - time index
12:13:54 - <CADSMCC> "YQQ CF18s have contact at 350',=85wm" NOTE:
The three digits 350' express flight levels above 18,000 feet.
In this instance 350' means an aircraft is flying at 35,000 ft.]

If indeed contact was made, as stated by the pilots, these
highly trained jet pilots would have been able to easily
distinguish between a flock of birds and a standard aircraft of
any kind with or without a transponder. Any observation as to
what the craft were, once contacted by the NORAD jets, was not
in the NORAD log - although the dozens of lines redacted in this
report may shed light on that which the pilots actually made
contact.

If the unknown was in fact, a standard aircraft, the pilots
would have responded according to JANAP - CIRVIS and NORAD
procedures. In the face of what pilots actually did report in
the NORAD ATC log - i.e. 'have contact at 350 feet' with the
'unknown(s)'- procedure would dictate an interception in order
to escort the craft. Since this did not occur, it can only be
presumed the unknown craft eluded the CF-18s or simply -
disappeared.

Most perplexing is that nowhere in the NORAD ATC log does the
lead or trailing pilot state or describe what was actually seen.
One would expect that once the pilot stated that - "YQQ CF-18s
have contact=85", some type of description of the craft or its
activity would have been made. That this did not occur appears
peculiar. The CF-18s either made contact or they did not.

In addition - if the 'unknown(s)' were a flock of birds as
blithely suggested by Minister MacKay, he is asking a member of
the public to believe that a species of ornithoides is capable
of flying at 35,000 feet and that this species of birds could
somehow have eluded CF-18 Hornets - one of the most
sophisticated jets in the NORAD arsenal.

This notion is completely irreconcilable and specious. For
Minister MacKay to respond in this manner is either a hollow
attempt to obfuscate facts, or it indicates he was/is totally
out of the loop in gaining access to information from his deputy
ministers, other officials within his own portfolio and from
NORAD concerning craft of unknown origin entering Canadian
airspace in an unauthorized manner.

Other matters to consider within the NORAD EVENTS STATUS REPORT

The most disconcerting aspect of this particular event seems to
imply that NORAD, with the massive facilities, technologies and
resources at its disposal, appears not to have been in control
of Canadian airspace - at least in this particular instance.
This also raises the questions - how often do these kinds of
incidents occur that NORAD jets are scrambled to chase and
unsuccessfully pursue 'unknown tracks' and, does this incident
and others like it mean that craft of unknown origin are able to
enter Canadian airspace with impunity?

The language in the lines immediately following the astounding
confirmation of contact by the pilot(s) with the 'unknown(s)' is
indecipherable due to its technical jargon - making it
impossible to determine what the pilots saw as they made
contact. One would - as mentioned above - expect some category
of description of the alleged 'contact'. Curiously this did not
occur.

The line previous to the 'YQQ CF-18s have contact' statement by
the pilot reads; "Time to target for CF-18s is 90 secs=85". This
statement in the NORAD log clearly demonstrates the CF-18s were
in fact pursuing and approaching something.

The following page in the NORAD log clearly indicates, in more
clear language, that another aircraft - an LR-35 MEDEVAC jet
made either visual or radar contact with the 'unknown(s)'. The
LR-35 jet reported that their aircraft could not keep up with
the 'unknown(s)'. This also implies straight and level flight.
[NOTE: the LR-35 (Lear jet) has a maximum speed of 530 mph -
Mach 0.81]

This portion of the event occurred at 35,000 feet. As one who
has flown aircraft before, only pressurized aircraft are able to
fly in this rarified flight environment - ruling out a small
aircraft as well as birds. No foreign craft were identified.

The other associated documents obtained by ZlandCommunications
from Library and Archives Canada, other AIA requests and other
sources - provides absolute verification and proof that Canadian
officials took the matter of unidentified flying objects very
seriously. Meetings, discussions and other forms of exchange
demonstrate government officials placed more than trivial
priority on the matter of 'flying saucers'.

Together, with the 2001 NORAD SECRET Status Events Report, these
pieces of verified documentation provide converging lines of
evidence that the Canadian government considered and still
considers the UFO phenomenon as real and of high interest -
otherwise why would internal memoranda have been executed?

Furthermore it remains clear that these unknowns or as they are
commonly called - UFOs - are elusive and possess flight
capabilities enabling them to out maneuver and elude our most
sophisticated aircraft.

The ZNN press release identifies documents obtained by
ZlandCommunications that clearly indicate the following:

1.  A NORAD SECRET Status Events Report reveals 2 NORAD CF-18
jets were scrambled to chase three 'UNKNOWN TRACKS' in 2001 out
of COMOX AF Base BC. Contact by one or more of the NORAD CF-18s
was confirmed.

2. In the same report an LR-35 MEDICAL EVACUATION jet out of
Anchorage Alaska apparently indicated contact of some kind and
that their aircraft could not keep up with the 'UNKNOWN TRACKS'.
(See NORAD SECRET Status Events Report in press release.)

3. Ancillary Documentation: Three other specific documents
obtained by ZNN clearly indicate that Canadian joint
intelligence committees and a Senior Radio Engineer from
Transport Canada openly exchanged memoranda and letters that
discussed UFOs (flying saucers). Links to these documents are
provided in the ZNN press release.

One memo from the Defense Research Board describes how plans
were to be made should a UFO land on Canadian soil. Yet another
to the Joint Intelligence Committee outlines how the RCAF would
follow the lead of the US Air Force in keeping information about
UFOs away from the public.

The third document outlines a visit to Washington DC by a Senior
Radio Engineer in the Department of Transport. His inquiries and
conclusions are summarized in a three-page letter. His meetings
with Washington and Canadian Embassy officials, among other
stunning and dramatic details, revealed the following:

"UFOs are real=85 and they are rated even higher than the H-bomb."
(See Wilbert Smith Memo in the ZNN press release)

Pursuant to the government's own documentation as revealed by
ZNN, it is now incumbent upon elected representatives to review
evidence residing within their own government archives and
respond in a thorough manner to the unacknowledged issues raised
by its own catalogued and certified data.

Therefore, we respectfully request the Minister of Defence to
respond in writing to the questions below. We would also request
a response from the Leader of the Opposition the Hon. Thomas
Mulcair, the Leader of the Liberal Party Mr. Justin Trudeau, and
as well, a response from the Hon. Charles Sousa whom I have
previously briefed on matters related to this issue on February
9, 2009 at his constituency office in Mississauga Ontario
Canada.

For the Minister of National Defence - The Hon. Rob Nicholson:

1. How often are you, as the Minister of Defence, informed or
briefed by NORAD officials about Canadian jets being scrambled
from any Canadian Air Force base or NORAD to pursue craft of
unknown origin within Canadian airspace?

2. a) Have you and to your knowledge, have previous Ministers of
Defence or the Prime Minister ever been briefed on the UFO
matter? b) Have you or the Prime Minister ever been directed by
anyone - including officials holding positions of authority in
Canadian or American military or intelligence agencies - not to
discuss or answer questions publicly or in the House of Commons
on matters concerning unidentified flying objects/UFOs or the
possibility of their extraterrestrial origins?

3. Has this matter ever been discussed in Cabinet, between you
and the Prime Minister or with officials in the Canadian Armed
Forces, CSIS, the RCMP or CSEC?

4. What total costs are involved in launching one or more jets
on a sortie like the one described above to engage in the
pursuit of 'unknown tracks' or targets that have entered
Canadian air space and detected on radar?

6. What is your response to, and assessment of the memorandum
penned by a representative of the Canadian Department of
Transportation to his superiors; and specifically the statement
- "UFOs are real=85 rated even higher than the H-bomb."? (See
Wilbert Smith Memo in the ZNN press release).

7. Please provide ZlandCommunications with a yearly or monthly
estimate of the regularity with which Canadian jets are
scrambled to pursue 'unknown tracks' or non-correlated targets
within Canadian airspace.

8. Will you make yourself available to answer questions from
sitting members of the House of Commons and the press regarding
this specific NORAD incident? Furthermore, will you respond to
questions during Question Period about the NORAD protocols and
policies that dictate the scrambling of Canadian jets?

9. ZNN respectfully requests that you forward to us a full
assessment of your investigation of the NORAD SECRET Status
Events Report in question. Please include any and all results
you may obtain referring to log entries on page three, date
index 01/09/12 - time index 12:13:54 - regarding CONTACT made by
the scrambled jets [<CADSMCC> "YQQ CF18s have contact at
350',=85wm"] and, if there is any way of establishing if both or
one of the CF-18s reported this CONTACT with the 'unknown(s)'
and what they may have seen.

10. In the context of the documentation in this correspondence
and the UFO files in the possession of the Canadian government -
please state - in everyday language - the Canadian government's
position and policies on the phenomenon of UFOs?

Thank you most sincerely for taking the time to respond in
writing to our enquiries.

Summary and Comment

Notwithstanding the authority, influence and expertise of most
elected officials, it is commonly known that, for the most part,
those elected who represent citizens in Parliament are
completely uninformed about, and prejudicially kept "out of the
loop", concerning the matters discussed in this briefing
document.  Political figures are quite often the last to find
out about, comprehend and internalize what the masses have known
all along.

Secondly, the UFO phenomenon has been the target of a 65 year-
old campaign of ridicule and disparagement by the US Air Force,
the US government and US media. Canada - according to the
documents in our press release - followed suit. Suffering from
this well orchestrated derision - the UFO matter has never been
taken seriously - until now.

Fear of the unknown nature of the UFO - Extraterrestrial
hypothesis has driven this issue underground - morphing it into
a conspiracy-laden subject with no credibility- one that has
become the butt of yarns and jokes among an uninformed media and
its indolent public.

Thirdly, government and media have always rejected and refused
to discuss real data, real witness testimony and real documents
on this matter as well as the ever-increasing number of UFO
sightings throughout the planet. Yet this information exists and
has gradually allowed the UFO issue to claim a certain
notoriety. The NORAD log and the associated Canadian documents
discussed in this brief are a only small part of an upsurge in
expressions of what is occurring in our skies - strengthening
the crescendo of indisputable evidence.

NUFORC - The National UFO Reporting Center in Washington State
has catalogued over 5700 UFO sightings in 2013 alone. It is
estimated by PSI that some 150 million people have seen a UFO
since 1947. The Canadian UFO Report says Canadians reported just
under 2000 UFO sightings in 2012. CNN reports that 80% of the
American public believes the US government is hiding information
on UFOs and their possible extraterrestrial origin. This data is
a fraction of international records. Space constraints do not
permit the vast military data to be included. As indicated above
these documents are available upon request.

Finally - information on the UFO matter is a highly restricted
commodity. Granted, some files have indeed been released by
governments however - they are merely 'dumped' into the public
domain with no clarification or comment by the government
bureaucrats who issue them. Military and intelligence agencies
see to that quite carefully. From 2008 to 2011 the UK released
over 12,000 UFO files - none of which produced a scintilla of
political effusion. An Internet buzz occurred for a while
however there was no political reaction from the UK government.

To achieve an understanding of this aberration - you are invited
to review the well recognized Edward Taus CIA document, entitled
'Flying Saucers' - item 3 - outlining how the CIA planned to
manage any and all details of the UFO matter by keeping
government interest and concern about UFOs out of the press and
away from public scrutiny.

However - the current public expos=E9 and disclosure of these
kinds of documents along with those included in this brief and
the many thousands of others, runs counter to government
obfuscation - documented evidence indicates UFOs do exist and
they are of real concern - proving unrelentingly and absolutely
that the UFO issue has indeed been discussed, analyze,
politicized and sequestered at the highest levels of governance
on the planet.

The many international encounters of UFOs cited by pilots,
police, military personnel and citizens and the wide variety of
documents and witness testimony involving unidentified flying
objects - are moreover, ignored and relegated to the realm of
myth, falsehoods, hoaxes and nonsense. Nothing could be farther
from the truth, as demonstrated by the finest example possible -
the country of France.

France ranks high among countries throughout the globe that seek
more government transparency on the matter of unidentified
flying objects. France has distinguished itself by publishing
the remarkable COMETA REPORT (UFOs and Defense: What should we
prepare for?)

Officials from the French Air Force, astronomers and ranking
military and police officials made up the investigative
committee. To date the COMETA REPORT is the most thorough
international investigation into the UFO matter.

The over-all impact of this report and its findings have led the
way for a more open dialogue on the matter of unidentified
flying objects. For your consideration a brief overview of this
report is available at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DBCH4OX1PN14  The text of the
report is available on line at:
https://archive.org/details/TheCometaReport

The COMETA report because of its scientific base has established
a new standard of credibility and a renewed era of openness and
transparency on the matter of unidentified flying objects. It
would be essential in any investigation by Canada.

The time has long since passed for the media to speak out and
examine this matter publicly. It is also time that the Canadian
government and other governments come forward to provide the
public with an authentic public examination of this issue.

It is of no surprise whatsoever that to some, if not all elected
officials, the military and intelligence communities in Canada
as well as in other G-20 countries are not responsive to, nor do
they have any motivation to address, disclose or clarify this
highly contentious political issue. This situation has unfolded
because of wide spread obfuscation and the use of a tactic known
as plausible deniability concerning the UFO matter among high
ranking intelligence and government officials for over 65 years.

Little doubt exists as to why, you as an elected official or as
a member of the press who may read this brief, may consider the
UFO matter preposterous. Essentially the matter has been
manipulated and disfigured beyond recognition by decades of
ridicule. This brief is an attempt to reconcile this
disfigurement and put our government and the fifth estate on the
road to acknowledgement and action.

It is not necessarily the fault of elected officials that they
possess little or no knowledge of what has been occurring in our
skies. Most simply have not been attentive to the decades long
investigations into the substantive documentation available by
former military personnel, former government employees and
independent researchers - most of whom during their careers may
have been part of the machinery to keep this information from
the public and elected officials.

While politicians and the media were consumed by planning how to
manage WW II, the Cold War, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the
race to the Moon, the JFK assassination, the fall of Communism,
the Berlin Wall, 911, Iraq and Iran and a myriad of financial
and political crises between and among these events, a well
orchestrated machinery that engineered and precluded any mention
or possibility of the UFO issue emerging as the third rail of US
or Canadian politics.

In the midst of global disasters, financial collapses and wars,
craft of unknown origin have proliferated - seen by citizens and
military pilots, tracked on radar and identified as unknowns -
coming and going in our airspace with impunity for decades.
NORAD has witnessed it, the Belgian government has witnessed it,
US Air Force pilots have witnessed it. The major flaw in any
statement by government officials that UFOs do not exist or they
are not a threat to national security is that the matter has
never been investigated. This is revealed in a statement by the
highest-ranking intelligence official in the US - a Navy Admiral
who was mindful and completely aware the UFO issue. No better
example exists that indicates those who were behind the scenes.
These high level politicians and military officials in the 1950s
and 60s were keenly aware of the UFO problem. They in no way
considered it as preposterous, but that it was a matter of grave
trepidation and uncertainty - essentially because few understood
what was actually occurring. Eventually, after years of internal
examination, a few brave individuals began to speak out.

After several years of avoiding the UFO issue, the highest-
ranking intelligence officer on the planet - the first director
of the CIA, Navy Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter - broke his
silence. He stated in the New York Times - Feb 27 1960:

"It is time for the truth to be brought out...  Behind the
scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned
about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many
citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are
nonsense... I urge immediate Congressional action to reduce the
dangers from secrecy about Unidentified Flying Objects..."

Decades later John Podesta Chief of Staff under President Bill
Clinton stated: "I think it's time to open the books on
questions that have remained in the dark on the question of
government investigations of UFOs. It's time to find out what
the truth really is that's out there. We ought to do it because
it's right, we ought to do it because the American people, quite
frankly, can handle the truth and we ought to do it because it's
the law."

=46rom a political, legal and journalistic perspective - little
more needs to be said.

It is our hope that Canada - both its media and government can
and will assume a responsive leadership role in North America
with respect to the questions raised in this brief question -
questions of substantial and unremitting global concern.


To Elected Representatives: We trust that this matter will be
addressed and that you will respond responsibly to our questions
in a serious and timely manner. We hope your authentic
consideration of this matter will prompt the next stage in the
process to determine what authentic steps may be forthcoming to
bring about clarity and transparency to this matter - a matter
that has historically been relegated to ridicule, secrecy and
silence by both elected government officials and those in the
military and intelligence communities. This must change.

To Members of the Press: It is time to take over the job that
UFO researchers have been doing for you for over 65 years.
Researchers have amassed enormous tomes of documentation that -
in a court of law would produce a conviction - scilicet. This
documentation is readily available. The next step is yours.

We look forward to your timely response.
