Michelle McKay has been a paranormal investigator for over 15 years. She is also a UFO researcher, following her great-uncle’s legacy.
Her great-uncle was internationally renowned pioneer UFOlogist, Henry McKay. He was a pioneer in UFO research. When he passed away at the age of 80, all of his hundreds of case files were passed down to Michelle. He was the very first Director of MUFON for Canada, and was one of the first modern day UFOlogists in the world to specialize in investigating physical traces associated with UFO landing sites and “close-range” UFO sightings. He was also in the Air Force. His files contain UFO cases in the United States, Canada and around the world. His work has been written about in many books, including “The Philadelphia Experiment”. He also coined several terms in UFOlogy.
Michelle is also a TV host and lead investigator on a television series in Canada about ghosts and hauntings, which is no longer filming and is currently in reruns in over 36 countries including Discovery I.D. (Canada), A&E Latin America (Bio), Netflix USA, Hulu USA, as well as Denmark, Belgium, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and others.
Michelle travels all over the United States and Canada to conduct investigations in search of all matters of the paranormal including ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists, demons, and UFOs. She also has, along with her great-uncle when he was alive, a special interest in the reported paranormal effects of the Crystal Skulls — made popular by the Indiana Jones movie. She currently lives in Collingwood/Toronto, Canada.
Grant Cameron became involved in Ufology as the Vietnam War ended in May 1975 with personal sightings of an object which locally became known as Charlie Red Star. The sightings occurred in Carman, Manitoba about 25 miles north of the Canada-US border. Hundreds of other people sighted objects at the same time during the sightings. Over the next 18 months he had many sightings of large objects and small objects in the area. He spent countless days in the area photographing a series of strange objects. Cameron has turned his research interests to the involvement, actions of the President of the United States in the UFO problem. He has made 25+ trips to the National Archives and most of the various Presidential archives looking for presidential UFO material. One highlight his presidential UFO research was the chance to question Vice-president Dick Cheney on his knowledge of the UFO subject. Another highlight is White House Office of Science and Technology which yielded 1,000 pages of UFO documents from the Clinton administration. He has lectured widely in Canada, Europe, and the United States on the 1975 Carman flap, the Canadian government's early investigations into UFOs, UFO disclosure politics, the Rockefeller UFO Initiative, and the Presidential UFO connection. In 2005 he was denied access to the United States to lecture on UFOs and why the government has chosen to withhold the truth. At present Cameron is sorting through almost 100 FOIA requests from the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, related to the UFO related actions and policies inside the two Presidential terms of Bill Clinton. The Clinton administration was very interested in the pheneomena and actually tried to force out some of the hidden infomation to the public. Many of these findings have been written up on The Presidents UFO Website www.presidentialufo.com.
