On this week’s episode of the Dark Poutine podcast, we learn about one of the most investigated UFO events in Canadian history.

In May 1967, an RCMP constable on patrol near Falcon Lake, Man., was flagged down by a wild-eyed man with a fantastic story to tell. The man, Stefan Michalak, was a 51-year-old amateur geologist who had been prospecting deep in the brush when he claimed he had had a close encounter with two UFOs.

Michalak was injured, and he initially refused medical treatment from the officer and later caught a bus back to Winnipeg. Upon his return, his son took him to the hospital. He did not tell the doctor that the burns on his chest were caused by an unidentified flying object (UFO) but, rather, by airplane exhaust. Michalak also consulted his family doctor about his loss of appetite; since the ordeal, he had experienced rapid weight loss.

The RCMP decided to close the case until Michalak could locate the landing site. On June 26, 1967, however, the case reopened when Michalak claimed to have found the site on his own and recovered objects he had left there — pieces of his burnt clothing, steel tape and some rocks and soil samples.

The soil samples, together with samples of clothes and the metal tape, had been despatched to be examined for radioactive materials. On July 24, the outcomes of those assessments had been despatched to the RCMP, together with a memo that said:

“UFO reported by Stephen (sic) Michalak. Laboratory assessments right here point out earth samples taken from scene extremely radioactive. Radiation safety Div. of Dept. of Well being and Welfare involved that others could also be uncovered, if journey in space not restricted.”

On the night of July 27, 1967, Michalak was visited by RCMP officers, who defined the laboratory findings of radioactive materials, and he agreed to take them to the touchdown website. Upon arrival, there was little proof discovered aside from a semicircle on the rock face, 15 ft in diameter, the place the moss had in some way been eliminated. Police discovered traces of radiation within the centre of the touchdown spot, however no hint of radiation was discovered across the outer perimeter of the circle or within the moss or grass beneath the rock.

The case remains to be unsolved.
