Chris Rutkowski and the Canadian UFO Survey

Chris Rutkowski's involvement in the Canadian UFO phenomenon runs so deep many refer to him simply as "the Canadian UFO guy". During his 40+ years of UFO related research, he has authored many books and appeared as an subject expert in countless television and documentary specials, including Unsolved Mysteries. 

What makes his contribution so unique, is that rather than focusing specifically on individual cases he instead uses the many connections he has made to compile data on all UFO reports made in Canada. 

Since 1989, he has analyzed this data and released his finding in an annual report titled the "Canadian UFO Survey". 

To anyone who questions the UFO activity above Canada, Chris Rutkowski is in a great position to tell you what appears to be happening above us. 

Live in Somerville - Part 2 - featuring Lucien Greaves

The event featured an interview with the controversial leader of The Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves

Where is Mekayla Bali?

April 12, 2016, 16 year old Mekayla Bali failed to meet her ride home from her Yorkton, SK high school. It was then discovered Mekayla never attended classes that day, despite having been dropped off at the school earlier that morning. 

Over a year later, Mekayla has yet to be located and her family knows little more than they did that day. 

Investigators were able to build a timeline of her unusual activities that day, but the information contained only creates more questions... most notably where did she go after 1:45pm and why?

Sunray - 2 - The Rise of Natureboy



In the prior episode we heard from Sunray who described her decision to covertly leave Canada to join a Costa Rican based spiritual group. While her explanation provided a better perspective to view her role in this story, the questions I had surrounding the group's other prominent figure remained piled high.

Throughout the media's coverage of this event Natureboy was portrayed as a villainous cult leader who held control over a brainwashed Kayla. After watching his videos and researching his history, I quickly realized he was far more complicated than that.

Over the course of Two episodes I will use excerpts of my conversation with Natureboy and attempt to answer the big question I've been asking…

Who is Natureboy… and how does an American model turned stripper end up leading a religious group in Costa Rica?

In The Rise Of Natureboy, I will cover his life as Bishop, and end with his spiritual awakening as Natureboy. A follow up episode, Who in Natureboy will continue with his decision to leave the United States and lead up to the present day.
