Ive searched above top secret and I have not found any information about the following memo. Forgive me if this has been posted before and for the formatting at the start. Here is the memo in text form (from rexresearch

OTTAWA, Ontario, November 21, 1950


On the basis of theoretical considerations a small
and very crude experimental unit was constructed approximately a
year ago and tested in our Standards Laboratory. The tests were
essentially successful in that sufficient energy was abstracted
from the earth's field to operate a voltmeter, approximately 50
milliwatts. Although this unit was far from being self-sustaining,
it nevertheless demonstrated the soundness of the basic principles
in a qualitative manner and provided useful data for the design of
a better unit.

The design has now been completed for a unit which
should be self-sustaining and in addition provide a small surplus
of power. Such a unit, in addition to functioning as a 'pilot
power plant' should be large enough to permit the study of the
various reaction forces which are expected to develop.

We believe that we are on the track of something
which may well prove to be the introduction to a new technology.
The existence of a different technology is borne out by the
investigations which are being carried on at the present time in
relation to flying saucers.

I made discreet enquiries through the Canadian Embassy
staff in Washington who were able to obtain for me the following

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 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.

the memo dates from 1950
its on the top of the memo

after 55years; chances are
things get declassified
this is probably a good example of that

doesnt it say "downgraded to confidential"?

thats probably how he got ahold of it...
just a thought...

I have two major issues with this.

1. More classified than the H-bomb, eh? So why'd we tell anyone? And let them live? I mean, really, we didn't hand over the H-bomb to the Canadians, so why would we something more classified than that?

2. WHY in God's name would something like this ever become Confidential, or anything other than TOP SECRET?!

I couldnt help but to think the same thing. Our government is so overprotective of its secrets that you wont find out about it untill they want you to. Just look at the B2 bomber production timeline. It was started in the 70's and no one who wasnt involved in the project knew anything for a decade.

If you have some reference at the top i.e Date place...

And it is a real memo should you not be able to obtain an copy
from that Freedom of information act thingy?

Atleast that would confirm it's genuine ish

the canadians work closely with america on technology

america works with other nations like Japan Austrailia Britain etc etc

NATO and ANZAC alliances mix and match
we are all one
dont allow yourself to forget that

Canada went to Afganistan w/USA

why is it so hard to realize we are very close allies and work togeather for the benifit of our mutual alliance?

like the guy said earlier; if you want to know wether the document is authentic or not; put in a request with the Canadian govt to get one
i dont know if Canada has a FOIA type thing; but its worth a try...

Ive only had a text copy.

As for requesting documents, anyone willing to try that is, check out the government of canada's page.

Maybe you would go through this

I only had this saved before, after researching now I found where I got the original from, if you need to know.

also look into transport canada

This is where you will probably find your best answers.

Acctually I posted about this just four days before you did
The reason the search didn't give any results may be beceause I think his name is "Wilbert" not "Wilburt". Here is the other link
