CBC interview invitation to discuss UFOs thwarted by Canada's Department of National Defence

Documents show Canadian Department of National Defence statement to the CBC to be false

Press Release

For Immediate Distribution

Toronto [ZNN] ZNN has learned that despite having 9500 UFO files on public display, Canada's Department of National Defence (DND) flatly refused to participate in a December 20, 2017 interview with CBC's acclaimed radio host of The Current Anna Maria Tremonti; stating the subject of UFOs is "outside the scope of our operations".
The documentation that follows will provide unequivocal confirmation that the statement made to the CBC by the Department of National Defence, is patently false.
As ZNN reported earlier, Ms. Tremonti, Canada's foremost investigative broadcast journalist interviewed three UFO experts on the acclaimed radio program The Current on December 20, 2017. 

The topic of the interview was the US Pentagon's dramatic release of information that the American Congress - through the actions of former Nevada Senator and Democratic Majority Leader in the US Senate, Harry Reid - obtained Congressional approval for $22 million to fund a Pentagon UFO investigation program from 2007 to 2012. [NYTimes]

CBC requested that the Department of National Defence be part of the interview - but the DND refused the offer. 

During that interview Ms. Tremonti read the response sent to The Current by the Department of National Defence in Ottawa Canada.

Ms. Tremonti quoted the DND statement as follows:
"While we understand your interest in the subject of UFO shows, we are not able to provide an interview as your request is outside the scope of our operations. The Canadian Armed Forces focuses on credible threats. We do not comment or facilitate interviews on speculative matters such as this." 
It appears there has been no public response from the CBC to the claims by the DND that UFOs are 'outside the scope' of DND operations.

Notwithstanding the CBC's decision not to challenge the DND on this point - ZlandCommunications has discovered a substantial and comprehensive body of information that indicates the subject of UFOs and other related matters are and have been well within the scope of operations of the Department of National Defence


Based on the information obtained by ZlandCommunications the issue of UFOs can hardly be considered as 'speculative'.

ZNN can also provide documentation that CBC radio is cited on page 103 of the DND UFO documents in the possession of ZlandCommunications. This page is entirely redacted according to Section.19(1) of the Access to Information Act for unknown reasons except for a "CBC Radio" written citation. No explanation was offered to ZNN for this redaction by the Department of National Defence.

A. Canada sends official to seek UFO information in Washington DC

The Department of National Defence continues to maintain the matter of UFOs is 'speculative' and "outside the scope of our operations" when in fact a Senior Radio Engineer at the Department of Transport named Wilbert B. Smith was authorized by the Canadian government to seek out detailed information in Washington DC about UFOs. 

Smith subsequently met with Doctor Omond M. Solandt, Chairman of the Canadian Defence Research Board to discuss possible propulsion systems used by UFOs that had purportedly fallen into the hands of the US government.

During his time in Washington DC, Wilbert B. Smith made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy staff in Washington DC who were able to obtain for him the following information as described in Smith's report:

a. The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.

b. Flying saucers exist.

c. Their modus operandi is unknown but a concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Doctor Vannevar Bush.

d. The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.

W.B. Smith page one
W.B. Smith page two
B. Field Reports sent to the DND

The position of the Department of National Defence is that UFOs are outside the scope of their  operations - yet a Joint Intelligence Committee meeting memo drawn up in Conference Room 4811, in "A" Building in Ottawa Canada on Wednesday April 12, 1960 saw fit to direct that: "All field reports on flying saucers be passed on to the Director of Scientific Intelligence for final examination on behalf of the Department of National Defence."

This memorandum further substantiates the many converging lines of evidence that the subject of UFOs is clearly within the scope of operations of the Department of National Defence.

Joint Intelligence Committee Memo

C. NORAD Commander's 2015 Letter to ZlandCommunications
A letter originating from the NORAD Commander in Colorado was sent directly to ZlandCommunications about this matter. In this letter to ZNN from the NORAD Commander in Colorado in December 2015, it states - an average of 1800 TOi’s (UFOs) radar sightings and 75 intercepts occurred over a 5-year period. 

One such incident is described below in a NORAD STATUS AND EVENTS received by ZlandCommunications from the Canadian Department of National Defence marked 'Secret'. 

[Note: The Canadian Department of National Defence maintains a co-terminus relationship with NORAD with a Canadian as its Deputy Commander.]

This document can be viewed at: NORAD Letter 

Other Documentation
The following documentation and its derived sources demonstrate the Canadian Department of National Defence has in fact accumulated and maintains non-speculative information about UFOs.
  • Pages upon pages marked SECRET of Air Traffic control logs using terms such as UFO, unknowns, unknown tracks or TOi's (Tracks of Interest)
  • Citizen reports of UFOs, intelligence committee memoranda, Defence Department Ministerial letters and RCMP investigation reports - all within the 9500 files accumulated by the Canadian government. These files are held and are freely available within Library and Archives Canada's web site Canada's UFOs: The search for the unknown
  • RCMP officers' reports on sightings of UFOs.
  • NORAD STATUS AND EVENTS reports marked 'Secret' indicate the practice of capturing UFOs on radar and NORAD jets being scrambled multiple times to investigate and in some cases intercept these objects.

With direct reference to the NORAD report above, three 'unknown tracks' were captured on radar in Canadian airspace. 

Two NORAD CF-18 jets were scrambled out of COMOX AFB (CYQQ) in British Columbia Canada to chase three 'unknowns'. 

The CF-18 pilots soon reported '90 seconds to target', then report "contact made" with a set of three maneuvering unknown objects without transponders travelling at 35,000 feet at high speed. 

The three unknowns were moving in controlled flight patterns at speeds matching and exceeding that of the CF-18s and an LR-35 Medical Evacuation jet in the same area. 

The LR-35 reported making visual contact with them [the objects]. Subsequently the LR-35 pilot states in the log - his jet 'could not keep up with them.' 

This six page Air Traffic Control (ATC) log outlines the specific minute by minute account of this event and communications between pilots and ATC at Comox AFB. 

[Note: It is important to point out that in June of 2004 - in response to an AIA request - ZlandCommunications received this particular six page NORAD Air Traffic Control log directly from the Canadian Department of National Defence in Ottawa as part of 117 pages of other UFO documentation.]

Based on these evidentiary items alone, one can only conclude that the denial by the DND of its interest in UFOs is not only incorrect but the DND continues to remain  steadfastly silent on the subject of UFOs. 

It is absolutely essential to point out two critical facts: 

First - All the above information received by ZlandCommunications pursuant to its multiple AIA requests as far back as 2004 as well as the 9500 files on the Library and Archives Canada web site all reside in and are available within the PUBLIC DOMAIN. 

Second - Therefore, the DND decision to refuse any discussion of their involvement in the UFO matter with Anna Maria Tremonti - despite clear evidence to the contrary - is not only a wanton and blatant disregard of their own documentation, but this decision may well be interpreted as an infringement on the rights and freedom of the press to report on matters already in the public domain.

This contradiction, while not only glaring, represents determined and subtle efforts by the DND to deflect inquiries by the press about the substance and nature of a subject matter of diverse and distinctly controversial implications.

These inquires and the refusal by the DND to discuss these matters publicly arouse serious questions and suspicions about how the DND portrays itself as an authentic governing and policy-making agency. 

The DND appears to proactively down-play, minimize and deny the validity of its own documentation on the UFO matter - depicting factual and verified documentation as 'speculative'.

The complete on-air statement segment by Ms. Anna Maria Tremonti quotes the Canadian Department of National Defence refusal to be interviewed on December 20, 2017:

"I should tell you that the Canadian Department of National Defence declined our request for an interview on this subject because we wanted to know what Canada is up to on this front. And they did send us a statement and the statement that DND sent us is superimposed on the image of a UFO flying over a field that looks like a 50s shot. And I have to tell you I have never seen the Department of National Defence in Canada tell us send us an illustrated 'no comment' but this is what they said to us and I'm quoting: " While we understand your interest in the subject of UFO shows, we are not able to provide an interview as your request is outside the scope of our operations. The Canadian Armed Forces focuses on credible threats. We do not comment or facilitate interviews on speculative matters such as this."

In light of the DND's obvious concern about UFOs as vividly described in its own documentation, how then can the Canadian Department of National Defence possibly continue to maintain its position that the matter of UFOs is 'speculative'?

A Canadian Perspective on Disclosure

News Director of ZlandCommunications Victor Viggiani - interview sheds light on the rapid growth of UFO/ET Disclosure in Canada

Media Alert

Toronto [ZNN] As the News Director of the ZlandCommunications NewsNetwork for nearly a decade, Victor Viggiani has advocated for the acknowledgement and disclosure of the UFO/ET  matter in Canada.

Without the courageous support and assistance of Canadian colleagues and organizations such as: The Conspiracy Show with Richard Syrett, the former Canadian Minister of National Defence the Honourable Paul T. Hellyer, Jo-Anne Eadie of the Alien Cosmic Expo, Grant Cameron, Stanton Friedman, Dr. Lana Marconi, Jordan Pease (ANP) and the dedicated people at MUFON Canada and its National Director Stu Bundy, the growth of the UFO Disclosure movement in Canada would not be where it is today. 

At this year's Alien Cosmic Expo - June 22nd to 24th - in Toronto Canada, Victor was asked to share his views and plans to advance the acknowledgement of the UFO/ET issue in Canada. Victor also explains how this critical matter of global importance has gained growing momentum in the Canadian and global mainstream media.

Two major Canadian Conferences address UFO Disclosure

Insights from 2018 conferences put Canada on the disclosure map

Press Release
For Immediate Distribution

Toronto [ZNN] Two major Canadian UFO conferences have put Canada on the map as an emerging world-leader in global efforts to raise awareness about the reality of UFOs. Toronto Ontario and Vancouver British Columbia shared the international stage to highlight the UFO/ET issue.

Experts from Canada and the US and an audience comprised of enthusiasts and activists from as far away as China and South Africa gathered to raise and address serious issues related to government involvement in the UFO cover-up - an embargo on the truth about UFOs.

The Alien Cosmic Expo was held in Toronto at the Marriott Airport Hotel. The ANP conference was held in Surrey British Columbia at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel.

"Both conferences proved beyond any doubt whatsoever one fact:
The link between the UFO reality and the governments
of the US and Canada is now indisputable." 
Stu Bundy MUFON Canada

A world-wide array of experts, authors, activists and researchers addressed how UFO Disclosure will affect the planet's geo-political direction as humanity becomes aware we are not alone in the cosmos. Each conference attracted over 300 attendees.

ZNN was honoured to have its News Director, Victor Viggiani speak at and moderate these events produced by MUFON Canada and Jordan Pease from Ashland Oregon.

ZNN has been informed by both conference co-ordinators that videos of interviews and presentations will be posted gradually as they are assembled by Robert Shimmon - MUFON Canada's ACE conference videographer as well as presentations and interviews by the tech-team at the Architects of the New Paradigm organization. [ZNN expresses its thanks and appreciation to Stu Bundy Assistant National Director of MUFON CANADA and Jordan Pease of ANP.]

"We must make our governments responsive to us. That's what it's about. We do need the government to respond to us. Otherwise,  just roll-over and live the rest of your life in a global totalitarian nightmare." 
Richard M. Dolan.

Conference Highlights
US Pentagon UFO Release
While direct and irrefutable evidence was presented attesting to involvement by NORAD and other military agencies to restrict public access to UFO data and documents, the recent December 2017 release by the US Pentagon concerning its $22 million UFO investigation program (AATIP) was hailed as "the leading edge of the wedge" towards a form of government-acknowledgement that the UFO phenomenon is not only real but it has been funded by the US Senate and thoroughly investigated by the US government.

All conference experts unanimously agreed that this Pentagon release of information was a conclusive and unprecedented admission by the highest level of military authority in the United States of the UFO reality - an admission that mainstream media in Canada and the US are yet to figure out.

Canada: UFO Files and Letters
Adding to this news, News Director of ZlandCommunications - Victor Viggiani stunned ACE and ANP audiences with specific details concerning government letters and documents demonstrating a similar Canadian government UFO acknowledgement. 

Viggiani revealed that 9,500 UFO files are located in the Library and Archives Canada data base - a fact that neither the general public nor media are aware of. 

He also revealed a letter sent to him by the NORAD Commander indicating that an average of 1800 TOis (tracks of interest) and 75 intercepts per year were recorded by NORAD over a period of five years. 

Viggiani also presented letters written to the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Minister of Defence Harjit Sajjan and cabinet ministers citing NORAD communications and the 9,500 UFO files - inviting them to the ACE conference to participate in the ACE conference deliberations on UFOs. (See these letters at the CRCU)

Senior MUFON Canada Investigator Ryan Stacey presented the new CANADIAN CURRENT EVENT SURVEY on UFO sightings for the first time publicly. This comprehensive survey re-assesses the way UFOs are reported, investigated and presented to the Canadian public. The survey is comprised of raw data, photos and videos of UFO sightings.

The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) to sponsor symposium to challenge Canadian government inaction on UFOs

National Director says it's time for Ottawa to disclose what they know about UFOs

Update: Internet radio interview on
SpacedOutRadio with Victor Viggiani
Disclosure in Canada
Listen HERE

Toronto, ON [ZNN] – World renowned scientists, researchers and investigative journalists will be presenting their latest evidence of the UFO and Extraterrestrial presence on Earth at the Alien Cosmic Expo to be held June 22-24 at the Toronto Airport Marriott.

The recent disclosure of the Pentagon’s $22 million secret Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) and the associated UFO video release was a watershed moment in the UFO disclosure movement.

AATIP officials studied videos of encounters between unknown objects and American military aircraft. That program produced "documents that describe sightings of aircraft that seemed to move at very high velocities with no visible signs of propulsion, or that hovered with no apparent means of lift." (The New York Times, December 16, 2017). 

CBC Radio’s The Current was the first Canadian mainstream media outlet to interview experts on this $22 million Pentagon UFO investigation program.

At the Alien Cosmic Expo Canadian researchers Grant Cameron and physicist Stanton Friedman will explain what has been going on behind the scenes to make this ground-breaking disclosure possible.

Stu Bundy, the National Director for MUFON Canada states, “It’s truly astounding that after 70 years of secrecy, the Pentagon has now admitted to running a UFO program (called AATIP) and concede that these advanced technologies are not from this Earth. But now it’s time for Ottawa to come to the table and disclose to the Canadian public what they know about UFO’s flying over our heads in this country.” 

Canadian CF-18's NORAD jets make "CONTACT" at 35,000 feet with three UFOs in Canadian airspace.

Victor Viggiani - Chair of the CRCU (Canadian Research Council on UFOs) and his Council have contacted Prime Minister Trudeau and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan to obtain their comments on three specified issues concerning UFOs:

1.  NORAD jets scrambled in 2001 to chase three UFOs and making “contact” at 35,000 feet according to a Department of National Defence Air Traffic Control log.
2.  Library and Archived Canada’s 9500 UFO files that have been posted but received no comment or elaboration by the government.
3.  A letter to Mr. Viggiani from the NORAD Commander in Colorado stating an average of 1800 UFO (TOI’s) radar sightings and 75 intercepts occurred over a 5-year period.

Mr. Viggiani will be presenting his findings on th Canadian NORAD incident at the Alien Cosmic Expo.
