1955, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In 1998, "skeptic" authors of a book on alien contacts exhumed a story of 1955 in Toronto, Canada, of a circle of 12 people who claimed to be in "tele-contact" with the "saucers people", who learned English, found it was a difficult language, and their voices had an unearthly accent which depended on the planet they came from.

The story comes in fact from a pamphlet written under pseudonym in 1957 and published by a certain "Brotherhood of Faithists", possibly a Canadian branch of the "Urantia" US cult.

Narratives:

[Ref. bh1:] ROBERT E. BARTHOLOMEW AND GEORGE S. HOWARD:

The authors indicate that in 1955, in Toronto, Canada, an inner circle of 12 people claimed to have made "tele-contact" with "saucer people", and that they found English difficult to learn and speak and their voices had an unearthly accent that depended which planet they came from. One of [the saucer people or the group's] lecture was about vegetarianism.

The authors indicate that the source is a personal letter from John Musgrave from the Mobile Planetarium Project at the Provincial Museum of Alberta, citing "Canadian Flying Saucers" by "Michael", pp 3-4.

Points to consider:

I do not think it is really necessary to comment on this "case".
