Aliens In Mississauga

Seriously, sometimes it's far too easy.

"I have no intention of convincing anybody of anything," said Viggiani, 59, director of media relations for Exopolitics Toronto, a non-profit educational group pushing for full disclosure of the truth about off-world beings.

"What I do is point them to the evidence."

Exopolitics is a field of study that has moved far beyond the question of whether we are alone in the universe. Its supporters believe there is enough evidence out there that they can state as fact that a) intelligent, sentient, ethical extra-terrestrials exist; b) they have made contact; and c) they probably have light years of lessons to teach us about sustainable energy sources and countless other matters of global importance"

It should be noted that Viggiani doesn't point anyone to the evidence in the rest of the article. I had trouble believing that this wasn't a Halloween prank, but when I read this paragraph, I was sure it was:

"As any public relations guru would know, it helps to have a credible celebrity to champion your cause.

Viggiani found his champion in Paul Hellyer, who was federal defence minister in Lester B. Pearson's cabinet and then ran for the Liberal leadership against Pierre Trudeau in 1968."

Yes. Well. Right. Dig up a has-been Liberal and he's the media relations champion of your cause? I'm convinced then.
