Following the recent saga of Chinese spy balloons making headlines, the Canadian government has announced its intention to set up a commission to investigate unidentified flying objects (UFOs) or PANs.
The commission, referred to by some as the "flying saucer commission," will be supervised by the Bureau of Scientific Research in Canada, with the aim of producing a report on the situation by the fall of 2024.
According to Christian Page, a specialist in myths and conspiracies, the government's reopening of an investigation into UFOs after 70 years is a significant development. He referred to the previous "Project Second Story," which was closed 70 years ago, and said that the government would open its books on this issue again to determine the nature of these phenomena.
In addition, the commission aims to assess whether these phenomena pose a real danger, especially to air navigation, whether military or civilian. This will be the first time since the 1950s that the Canadian government has taken an interest in UFOs.
The establishment of the commission has been met with both skepticism and excitement from the public. While some are excited about the possibility of finally understanding the truth behind UFO sightings, others are skeptical about the legitimacy of such investigations.
Some experts have argued that there are many possible explanations for UFO sightings, such as misidentified aircraft or weather balloons. However, proponents of the commission argue that it is important to investigate all sightings to determine whether they represent a potential threat to air navigation or national security.
Regardless of the outcome of the commission's investigation, its creation signals a renewed interest in the topic of UFOs and the potential dangers they may pose.
