Manitoba is home to many Ufologists, one of which being Chris Rutkowski. Mr. Rutkowski is a science writer, educator and author of many books on unexplained phenomenon such as UFOs. Earlier this year, Mr. Rutkowski put together a blog which highlighted some of the mysterious places around Manitoba. Below are a few examples of how strange Manitoba really is.
The story behind Charlie Redstar is that back in the latee 70’s and early 80’s, strange lights were filmed and photographed by a large number of peope in the area of Sperling, Manitoba and Carman, Manitoba. A cameraman, from a local television station actually caught the incident on film. These mysterious lights, some locals say, can still be seen today.
Hotel Fort Garry
One of the most famous haunted buildings in Manitoba is the Hotel Fort Garry. Speaking with a former employee who used to work in the lounge, she told us a story about one evening when she was closing up the bar. The guests had all left and the staff were simply cleaning up from the evening. Up top, hanging above the bar were wine glass racks. At the end of the racks, there was a slight lip that you would have to lift the glass up and over when pulling a glass out. While the staff was cleaning up, mysteriously an entire row of wine glasses slid off the rack and broke on the bar floor. None of the staff were anywhere near the wine glasses. What made that happen?
Falcon Lake Saucer
Falcon Lake had a UFO incident that left a prospector burned by a blast of hot gas. In 1967, Stefan Michalak came across a flying saucer that landed in a clearing near where he was prospecting. He managed to walk up to and around the craft, but was blasted by hot exhaust when it lifted up and flew off. This unexplained case was investigated by the RCMP, the Royal Canadian Air Force as well as the US Air Force.
The Marlborough Hotel
Another one of Winnipeg’s oldest hotels, opening in 1914, the Marlborough Hotel on Smith Street is also said to be haunted by a woman who was murdered on the 5th floor back in 1943. The Winnipeg Paranormal Group conducted an investigation back in 2014 when the hotel celebrated it’s 100th anniversary.
This old house was initially used back in the early 1900’s as the North American Centre of Research into paranormal activity. Seances were conducted in rooms on the top floor of the house. Photos from these seances show apparitions appearing in teleplasmic protrusions. Very eerie, indeed.
