Canadian UFO sightings doubled in 2012

A new report from Canada's Ufology Research Institute has revealed that sightings are on the increase.

The organization documented 1,981 UFO cases in 2012, more than double the 981 cases of the previous year. Up to 40% of the sightings took place over Ontario while reports came in from every other Canadian province with the exception of Saskatchewan and Prince Edward Island. While the number of reports is clearly on the rise, the institute is not jumping to a purely extraterrestrial interpretation of these statistics.

Several factors are being cited as reasons for the increase in sightings including the possibility that more classified military exercises are taking place over populated regions and that people may be more likely to mistake conventional objects in the sky for something unusual. The easy availability of camera phones and Internet access in recent years has also meant that it is easier than ever to record and distribute footage and pictures of potentially otherworldly objects.

"UFO sightings in Canada are at an all-time high, according to Canadian sky-gazers."

Recorded ufo's! Please can we see it. And they all turn out to be advertising blimps.

The real question is, if you run a graph of UFO sightings and superimpose it over a graph of Molson sales for 2012, do they match?

...almost over 2,000 UFO cases and these so called experts are still skeptical about it? No, we aren't skeptical at all about UFO's existing. I see several each night - they are most likely planes and choppers, even the occasional satellite, but they are genuine unidentified flying objects.. Are you perhaps misusing the term? Try to remember what the U stands for, OK? what do you guys want little green men to land on your backyards and drop by to say hi or something? Answering my own question, yes you are - you're talking about aliens, aren't you.. You see, aliens and UFOs aren't the same thin... [More]

snip So I shall now ask AGAIN: Andromedan Starseed 333, in your expert opinion what is the best documented UFO case involving aliens? The last few times I have asked this, silence ensued... but I live in hope.. Good luck, Chrlzs, I myself have asked that question never to receive a solid answer... Cheers, Badeskov

An obvious question is does a comparable increase in sightings occur just south of the border to these provinces?

I really have to tell you that I have been cheated by UFOs or rather lack of them. For the last 15 years I have cruised my sailing catamaran often at night as well as day. In all these many hours of sailing up on deck I HAVE NEVER SOON A UFO. Ok I have seen many flying objects , but all identified. I wish to protest to the negligence of the UFO controller.

Good luck, Chrlzs, I myself have asked that question never to receive a solid answer... Cheers, Badeskov It's because some people believe quantity trumps quality where the 'truth' is concerned. They don't have a single solid case though they will tell you of numerous questionable cases and assume that the truth must be buried in there somewhere because 'look at how many there are'! Personally, I don't get it.

Sightings doubled in 2012? heres the news from April. 2012 OTTAWA - The air force will expand testing of drones over Canadian soil this year, giving itself — and potentially law-enforcement agencies — more eyes in the sky. But a legal expert warns the emerging technology needs close study and clear restrictions when it's not being used to wage war. Unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs have become the weapon of choice for the U.S. in strikes against al-Qaida, and the Americans are stepping up their use along the Canadian border. Errol Mendes, a University of Ottawa law professor and former adviser ... [More]

yeah baby UFOs UFOs UFOs!!!!Canada your lucky.i wish i was there for this.almost over 2,000 UFO cases and these so called experts are still skeptical about it?what do you guys want little green men to land on your backyards and drop by to say hi or something?i am not saying to believe everything but don't dismiss it either or not research it Yes, don't you as well? The skeptics want to believe in E.T. visitation as well, and I believe spend considerably more energy researching cases than the non-questioning blind faithers. Ask any person you consider a skeptic if there are cases they can not f... [More]
