Poll finds that 3 million Canadians have seen UFOs

A national survey by an independent research consortium has found
that 9.6 per cent of all Canadians believe they have seen UFOs.

"This translates into nearly 3 million people who say they are
UFO witnesses," notes Chris Rutkowski, project coordinator.

The survey was conducted by independent researchers in five
Canadian cities in British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec
during August 1997.

"Information was gathered by special interest groups across the
country, working together for the first time in a coordinated
research project," Rutkowski says. "Nearly 200 Canadians were
randomly surveyed, and our results appear to be in line with
similar studies in the United States."

Other results of the survey:

-	78 per cent of Canadians believe in the existence of life
       elsewhere in the universe.

-	More than 52 per cent believe that some UFOs are alien spacecraft.

-	Only 12 per cent of people who have seen UFOs actually report
       their sightings.

-	More than 57 per cent of Canadians believe there is a military
       or government cover-up regarding the existence of UFOs.

-	Older Canadians tend not to believe in UFOs or cover-ups.

-	Younger Canadian adults are more likely to believe in the
       existence of extraterrestrial life.
