An event happening on Thursday February 7th 2013 w. Stephen Bassett, Grant Cameron, The Honorable Paul Hellyer and Victor Viggiani.


In preparation for the Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure in Washington DC this April, a Canadian group in support of ET Disclosure will host an international preview event for the press and the general public in Toronto. This event will provide an in-depth preview of the Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure to be held at the Washington DC National Press Club from April 29 to May 3, 2013 under the direction of Stephen G. Bassett – Executive Director of the Paradigm Research Group.

A keynote address at the Toronto preview event will be delivered by The Honorable Paul T. Hellyer - former Canadian Minister of National Defense. Mr. Hellyer has also been called to appear as a witness at the Hearings in Washington DC in April.

Mr. Bassett expects some 40 witnesses will present over 30 hours of testimony to former members of the House of Representatives regarding events and evidence relevant to extraterrestrial related phenomena. The Citizens’ Hearing setting will match that of a formal Senate hearing to the extent possible. The proceedings will be streamed live over the internet. An international film production company will tape the hearings in preparation for a film documentary.

Introduction of The Honorable Paul T. Hellyer former Minister of National Defense of Canada

Keynote Address: The Honorable Paul T. Hellyer former Canadian Minister of National Defense (approx 15 minutes)

Moderator Victor Viggiani will introduce the panel: Stephen G. Bassett (on Skype) - Grant Cameron (on Skype) - The Hon. Paul Hellyer along with Mr. Viggiani will present remarks on the Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure to be held in Washington DC at the National Press Club during the week of April 29 to May 3, 2013

Each panelist will contribute comments that reflect the strategic significance of the Hearing process based on their area of expertise on the UFO Disclosure movement. Mr. Bassett (political activist), Mr. Hellyer (former Cabinet Minister/MoD), Mr. Cameron (Canadian UFO Research analyst and author), Mr. Viggiani (Media and Broadcast Journalist)


Mr. Bassett will begin the panel presentations as the coordinator of the Disclosure Hearings. He will outline the history, rationale and strategic importance of the Hearings.

Mr. Grant Cameron - will assess the political and research implications of disclosure as it relates to the roles played by United States Presidents in maintaining the high levels of secrecy that surround ET related issues. The history of involvement of virtually every US President since Harry Truman in ET related matters has be meticulously catalog and analyzed by Mr. Cameron - one of Canada's new generation of internationally recognized UFO researchers.

The Honorable Paul T. Hellyer, who will appear as a Cabinet level witness at the Washington DC Hearings will enhance and expand upon his keynote address from a national security and government policy perspective. Mr. Hellyer, since coming forward at the University of Toronto's Convocation Hall in 2005 about the UFO issue, has spoken throughout the globe on this matter. He has been a staunch critic of government and military officials who remain complacent in the face of unassailable evidence that indicates not only are UFOs real but they represent the most historic chapter in the history of the human race and its survival on the planet. We anticipate he will answer the question: Why would a former Minister of Defense choose to take such a position on an issue that, despite the prevalence of evidence, is summarily and critically dismissed by government?

Mr. Victor Viggiani will provide an assessment of the significant role North American mainstream media continues to play in avoiding any incisive journalistic investigation into the vast array of evidentiary information available in Canadian and American archives. Government documents, radar reports and military witness testimony indicating that an extraterrestrial presence has engaged the human race continue to be ignored by media.


The balance of the evening will be devoted to a general discussion of the Disclosure issue as a political imperative requiring the broad-based government acknowledgement of the extraterrestrial presence now engaging the human race. This question and answer format involving the panel will be an integral part of this segment of the event. In addition to guests present at the Conspiracy Culture store, this event will also be streamed live over the internet. Therefore the moderator will co-ordinate discussion and questions from the assembled guests, the media and those who submit questions on-line.


Media requests for camera space and interview time with Mr. Hellyer and Mr. Viggiani can be made by contacting Chris Russak – event coordinator – by email at prior to the event date.


The Citizens’ Hearing will be conducted over five days. It will consist of 30 hours of testimony from approximately forty witnesses testifying in groups of three and four regarding events and evidence relevant to extraterrestrial related phenomena. Each witness will deliver prepared remarks to be followed by questions from the hearing committee made up of five former members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.

The setting for and conduct of the Citizens’ Hearing will match that of a formal Senate hearing to the extent possible. The Hart Senate Hearing Room will be the model. In addition to a press section, there will be room for a public audience of approximately 300. The entire Citizens’ Hearing, 40 hours, will be live streamed over the Internet.

Simultaneous translations for the live and Internet audience will be available in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Russian as needed. The last Congressional hearing addressing the ET subject occurred in 1968. The motto for the Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure is, "If Congress will not do its job, the people will."

Stephen G. Bassett
Stephen G. Bassett is an exopolitical activist and a leading advocate for ending the 65-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race. He is the executive director of PRG - the Paradigm Research Group which will produce a "Citizens’ Hearing on Disclosure" in 2013. Stephen has spoken to audiences all over the world about the implications of formal Disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence; his advocacy work has been extensively covered by national and international media.

Grant Cameron
Grant Cameron has lectured widely in Canada, Europe, and the United States on the Canadian government's early investigations into flying saucers, UFO disclosure politics, the Rockefeller UFO Initiative, and the Presidential UFO connection. Mr. Cameron has examined almost 100 FOIA requests from the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas pertinent to the UFO related actions and policies inside the two Presidential terms of Bill Clinton. These files demonstrated that the Clinton administration was very interested in the phenomena and actually tried to force out some of the hidden information to the public. His web site Presidents UFO Web Site explains the entire known history of how the most powerful man in the world has dealt with the most highly classified secret of the last century.

The Hon. Paul T. Hellyer
Paul Hellyer is one of Canada’s best known and most controversial politicians. First elected in 1949, he was the youngest cabinet minister appointed to Louis S. St. Laurent’s government eight years later. He subsequently held senior posts in the governments of Lester B. Pearson and Pierre E. Trudeau, who defeated him for the Liberal Party leadership in 1968. The following year, after achieving the rank of senior minister, which was later designated Deputy Prime Minister, Hellyer resigned from the Trudeau cabinet on a question of principle related to housing. In his recently published book “Light at the End of the Tunnel”, among other issues, Mr. Hellyer claims that exotic energy sources already exist. They have been developed by the U.S. “shadow government” at the massive underground “black operation” installations in Nevada and Arizona using technology borrowed from visitors from other planets. Yet they remain secret for the alleged benefit of the privileged few.

“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...” CIA Director Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter New York Times Feb 27, 1960

“UFOs are as real as the airplanes that fly over your head.” The Hon. Paul T. Hellyer former Canadian Minister of National Defense – at the University of Toronto’s Convocation Hall Symposium Sept 2005

"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs." NASA Astronaut Scott Carpenter

"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public." NASA Astronaut Gordon Cooper

If you missed the event last night, it was quite something! The venue was packed to the gills and there was a whack of local media in-house to record the event. Here's a review from Ross Well...


Good to see some familiar faces in the crowd!

Why do you think that? Some nutters rambling on about aliens - a Star Trek convention would be more interesting.

such a childish response... I bet all your interests are super important.
I seriously doubt a star-trek convention would be even half as interesting as this disclosure event.

But yeah, you're probably right!
