Vancouver tops in reported UFO sightings across Canada

The Associated Press

WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Vancouver and Toronto topped the list of
Canadian cities with sightings of unidentified flying objects,
according to an annual report.

According to the 2003 Canadian UFO Survey released Tuesday by
Ufology Research of Manitoba, there were 673 UFO sightings across
Canada last year, 39 percent more than in 2002. Of the sightings
reported last year, 41 were in Vancouver and 34 in Toronto.

"It's still puzzling why we're seeing an increase," survey
author Chris Rutkowski said. "It could be that more people are
willing to admit they've seen a UFO because they see other
people admitting it. The ridicule barrier is almost completely
eliminated."

Of the total sightings, 17 percent remain unexplained.

"We have enough information to judge that the other objects were
a star or an aircraft," Rutkowski said.
