Former Canadian defence minister Paul Hellyer, the so-called highest-ranked alien believer on Earth, says that extraterrestrials live among us and they refuse to share their advanced technology due to wars and pollution.
Hellyer, who was a Liberal defence minister from 1963 to 1967 under prime minister Lester B. Pearson, went public with his belief in aliens on earth in 2005.
Hellyer, 90, told Russia Today that he believes there are 80 different species of extraterrestrials, some of whom “look just like us and they could walk down the street and you wouldn’t know if you walked past one.
“I would say that nearly all are benign and benevolent and they do want to help us, there may be one or two species which do not.”
Hellyer described a cosmos similar to that of Star Trek and says that there is a “federation” of aliens that has a rule to not interfere in our affairs — the same as Trek’s “prime directive.”
He adds that the aliens are rather unimpressed with us earthlings.
“They don’t think we are good stewards of our planet, we’re clear cutting our forests, we’re polluting our rivers and our lakes, and we’re dumping sewage in the oceans, and we’re doing all sorts of things which are not what good stewards of their homes should be doing,” he said.
Hellyer claimed to have seen a UFO already 3 years ago, near his cottage on Lake Muskoka, north of Toronto.
“It just looked like a star,” he said when asked to describe it.
