Canadian UFO crash hoax mushrooms on social media

Internet and social media sites apparently escalated “news” of a Canadian UFO crash at Jackhead First Nation February 18, 2015. The original story was a gag, according to Canadian UFO Researcher Chris Rutkowski, but details continued anyway.

Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Assistant National Director Stu Bundy quickly chased down the UFO crash details and discovered it was a hoax.

Canada’s CBC News was in touch with Canadian military who reported that the Manitoba sighting report was actually an airplane from a training exercise.

Bundy said the best information came from Rutkowski who operates Ufology Research – one of Canada’s best UFO information resources.

“Chris actually spoke to people on the Jakehead First Nations reserve,” Bundy said, “who said nothing was happening, and that there wasn’t a crash of anything, let alone a flying disk.”

Multiple websites and social media picked up on the news and continued to report that a UFO had crashed in that area and that Canadian military had moved in and was sequestering the locals.

    If the UFO crash was a hoax why did the Canadian military not show some of the locals what they were doing to dispel any fears they might have. They know these events always arouse concerns and curiosity, they could easily have stopped a hoax in its tracks, did they inform the locals there was going to be a military exercise, if not why not? Three reasons, 1- They never thought it would causing a problem. 2- They could not give a damn what the public thought. 3- They had something to hide.

    If the Canadian military said it was a plane, but the Jackhead First Nations reserves said nothing was happening, then some one is lying.

    The Hoax slant is just part of the cover up. People love to expose hoaxters and the Canadian military is counting on this fact to hide their cover up with as much confusion as possible. It has worked in the past and it is working now. They will manage to convince the mainstream public because they are already, brainwashed fools. They aren’t going to fool the few million critical thinkers out there ever. Play your games Can Military but we know we have our own Canadian Rosswell.

    So MUFON has been breached now also? Intimidating locals into silence is a typical military move. Disclosure is coming soon. CBC occasionally exposes the truth, but they still do what they’re told by the powers that be… Too bad, but the several million critical thinkers know that the truth is out there.
