In a Dec. 30 interview with Russia Today, Paul Hellyer said the aliens do not want to tell us how to run our affairs, but are concerned we are not doing a very good job managing the planet.
"We spend too much time fighting each other, we spend too much money on military expenditures, and not enough on feeding the poor and looking after the homeless and the sick, and that we are polluting our waters and our air and that we’re playing around with these exotic weapons, thermonuclear weapons and atomic weapons, which have such devastating effects both on Earth and other areas of Cosmos," Hellyer said.
In his time as minister of defense, Hellyer said the majority of UFO sightings investigated by the Canadian government were false alarms, but up to 20 percent of them were genuine unidentified flying objects.
Hellyer also claims to have once spotted a UFO -- one that looked like a star.
"I don’t know if you personally have ever read the Bible or not but I think the star of Bethlehem was one of God’s flying saucers," he said.
Hellyer is far from alone in his claim to have spotted an unidentified flying object. In Georgia, UFO sightings have been reported in Winder, Buford, Dacula and other towns.
