Vancouver is Canada's top UFO hotspot

A new survey has identified the Canadian city as one of the best places in the world to see a UFO.
Canada itself is no stranger to the unexplained having been a UFO activity hotspot for decades. Last year there were 1,100 reported sightings in the country and a whopping 116 of those occurred within the city of Vancouver alone.

Astronomer Chris Rutkowski, who works with the Canadian UFO survey, has been attempting to make sense of the data and believes that the sheer number of reports warrants further investigation.

"Are we looking at a real phenomenon ?" he said. "Is there a psychological phenomenon accounting for all this ? Why do people persist in seeing something that supposedly shouldn’t be there ?"

Some of the people living in the city have reported sightings of UFOs on a regular basis.

"I see them every night," said Vancouver resident Charles Lamoureux. "I can pretty well tell what’s a satellite and not a satellite. If it’s not a satellite and way up in the atmosphere and it changes direction, there’s not many things it could be."

Is there something peculiar about that part of town? "The area is noted for a high incidence of poverty, drug use, sex trade, crime, violence, as well as a history of community activism.Hastings and Cordova Streets were once the core shopping district in the city, many of the retail shops that flourished until the early 1980s are now gone. The area was the victim of significant urban decay but presently buildings are being renewed and many new businesses are operating in the community." -Wiki

Just the Canadian version of a redneck-UFO insult, I guess.

I am not at all familiar with Vancouver.

I figured it'd end up being Robert Pickton's hunting grounds.

I figured it'd end up being Robert Pickton's hunting grounds. Former multi-millionaire pig farmer and serial killer. He has quite a resume.

Better to report seeing UFO's than seeing flying pink elephants I suppose.

That is an astoundingly stupid move on the part of the planetarium. But attendance went up 65% after the media exposure.

But attendance went up 65% after the media exposure. That's good but such a tacky way to do it.
