On September 25, 2005, Hon Paul Hellyer, the former Canadian Minister for National Defense gave a speech in Toronto at an event titled: "Exopolitics Toronto: A Symposium on UFO Disclosure and Planetary Direction". Hellyer described his time as Minister for Defense from 1963-1967 where the occasional UFO sighting report crossed his desk. He claims to never have had time for what he considered to be a "flight of fancy", but nevertheless retained an interest in the UFO phenomenon.
While Minister for Defense, he was guest of honor at the opening of
the world’s first UFO landing pad at Alberta, Canada in 1967. He
thought it an innovative idea from a progressive Canadian community
willing to pay for his helicopter ride, but did not give much
thought to UFOs as having serious policy implications. He also
describes a private UFO sighting he later had with family and
guests, but once again attributed it to a ’flight of fancy’ rather
than anything having serious policy implications.
The unnamed General simply said: "every word is true and more". Hellyer then proceeded to discuss the "and more …" with the general and claimed he was told remarkable things concerning UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypothesis that interplanetary visitors have been here since at least 1947. Finally convinced that the UFO phenomenon was real Hellyer decided to come forward and speak at Exopolitics Toronto about some of the "most profoundly important policy questions that must be addressed."

The policy questions Hellyer addressed in his talk are both profound and vitally important for citizens of every nation of Earth.
First, Hellyer claimed that evidence concerning
UFOs is the
"greatest and most successful cover up in the history of the world".
He confirmed that senior political officials even at the rank of
Minister of Defense, a position he himself occupied, are simply out
of the loop when it comes to information concerning UFOs and
visiting extraterrestrials. From a democratic perspective, that
raises many concerns about oversight, transparency and
accountability of those in control of the information, technology
and projects concerning the extraterrestrial visitors.
Understanding the evidence concerning the
UFO phenomenon is vital to fully preparing citizens around the world
for the truth concerning extraterrestrials, despite official denial
and secrecy by those "in the loop". He calls for major global
initiatives to fully prepare global citizenry for the truth. He
endorses a position taken by key exopolitical researchers such as
Alfred Webre to prepare for a "Decade of Contact" where humanity is
prepared for the truth about extraterrestrial visitors through
informed debate and education.
