The Place Bonaventure Hotel Incident is the quintessential UFO event involving a big UFO hovering above the outdoor pool of a Hilton hotel in downtown Montreal. For nearly three hours, 40+ eyewitnesses looked upon a UFO, including journalists, police officers, members of the RCMP, and military personnel.

On this episode, Brian Hastie from Double Density and The Order of Podcasters joins me to discuss this infamous, and various other UFO events around Quebec.
