About the Author

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. Although Hellyer is best known for the unification of the Canadian Armed Forces and for his 1968 chairmanship of the Task Force on Housing and Urban Development, he has maintained a life-long interest in macroeconomics. Through the years, as a journalist and political commentator, he has continued to fight for economic reforms and has written several books on the subject. A man of many interests, Hellyer's ideas are not classroom abstractions. He was born and raised on a farm and his business experience includes manufacturing, retailing, construction, land development, tourism and publishing. He has also been active in community affairs including the arts and studied voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto. His multi-faceted career, in addition to a near-lifetime in politics, gives Hellyer a rare perspective on what has gone wrong with world economies. In recent years he has become interested in the extraterrestrial presence and their superior technology that we have been emulating. In September 2005 he became the first person of cabinet rank in the G8 group of countries to state unequivocally “UFO's are as real as the airplanes flying overhead.” He continues to take an interest in these areas and provides a bit of basic information about them in this book.

It is truly a rare day when a former Minister of Defense speaks out concerning the biggest cover-up of our time: Other Life in the universe that is here on earth now. Then his equally astounding revelation that the United States government has reverse engineered the power plants of their aircraft is headline news that goes unreported world-wide. It has been estimated that 1/3 of the population of the world does not have electricity, and yet Mr. Hellyer's courageous statements are ignored. Galileo and Copernicus would applaud the contents of this book and understand the reasons why it is not reviewed by the New York Times. The permanent war economy is fueled by Oil and Uranium and making a peaceful Transition to other sources of energy would upset the status quo. Indeed, there is light at the end of the tunnel, but the powers that be are unwilling to let it shine, and our future looks bleak. Thank You Mr. Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defense of Canada, for your bravery in these dangerous times.

Unlike our Asian counterparts, the West often fails to accord our wise elders the honor they deserve - the status they have earned by devoting their lives to love of, and service to humankind. Paul Hellyer of Canada is one such man. Born in 1923, he is very much a hero of the 20th century; yet he continues his vigorous momentum into the new century, preparing youth for the hopes and challenges that lie ahead.

As former Minister of Defense for Canada and cabinet member during both the Pearson and Trudeau administrations, Hellyer is certain that technology currently exists to replace the ecologically-destructive world oil economy. He argues that, while difficult and financially threatening to "big oil," a gradual transition can, and must be implemented post haste, warning that ten years is just about all the time we have left before the ecological damage to our planet becomes irreversible.

"Failure to disclose a clean energy alternative to fossil fuels," he writes, "is worse than a crime against humanity. It's a crime against creation and the Creator."

His book speaks volumes about crimes against planet Earth. He investigates them from many perspectives, laying out charges against perpetrators, and in his wisdom, offers rehabilitation plans to assure today's youth that they will inherit a world redeemed from near destruction.

Minister Hellyer reminds his American readers of the long-standing economic dirty tricks, the incessant meddling in the internal affairs of other nations and myriads of injustices carried out by the United States government under the banner of democracy, freedom and, ironically, peace - also that, because of U.S. news media collusion, such outrages rarely reach the eyes and ears of the average Yankee.

This is really an advanced college type book for those with some knowledge of these subjects; but if you can trust a past Defense Minister of Canada this book won't disappoint. His conversations with Astronaut Edgar Mitchell and Shirley McLain show that like minds gather together like birds of a feather. . . So there is something important here if you want to expand your horizons by someone who should know what's been going on the last 50 years or more. . . . UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record and UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973. These other two books are great recent corroboration if you need more detail. . . Very Important Info for an Endangered world.

"UFOs are real as the airplanes flying overhead. The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy and let the truth emerge . . . . one of the most important issues facing our planet," is the words spoken by Mr. Paul Hellyer, former Minister of Defense of Canada, and cabinet member during both the Pearson and Trudeau administrations, as well as long-time member of the Canadian Parliament. That statement alone compelled me to seek out his work and purchase this book. His statement at the Exopolitics Toronto Symposium on September 25, 2005 marked the first time an acknowledgment of actual UFO reality had been expressed by such a high-ranking government minister. That got my attention. But, there is so very much more in this book, that any serious person who can attest to possession of an "open-mind" and is deeply concerned about the global issues facing human civilization, simply must read this courageous book. Hellyer drives hard and fearlessly into every major issue, including world peace, terrorism worldwide, middle east peace, global cabal, world dominate corporate entities, global banking collapse, massive debt and economic calamity, global pollution, plus ETs . . . and that is just the "short list"! But, while he is adept at research and full-disclosure of his opinion vs. others. . . He also takes the fully responsible step of proposing solutions to a laundry list of the most vexing and damaging issues facing civilization on planet earth. Is there anything more important to read about and become better informed? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. ==> When I Was a Child: Based on a true story of love, death, and survival on the Kansas prairie
