A team of professional treasure hunters recently met to try to fish up something from Lake Ontario that, according to locals, had been lost for decades. According to them, something huge had fallen into the lake in the 1950s, but nobody was able to figure out what this was at the time. The only thing they heard was a huge blow, followed by a splash. So the divers had a specific purpose: to retrieve up a mysterious object that had sunk to the bottom of the lake 70 years ago. Although it seemed a simple job on paper, the crew understood that it would not be an easy task to accomplish.
When the locals tried to contact the authorities in 1950, they received a rather strange response from their government. The authorities denied that something had happened!

Perhaps it was a rocket or a submarine prototype, something that the Canadian government could have used during the Cold War. Stories of the mysterious object were circulating for decades among the local population, until the treasure hunters became aware of it and decided to investigate… Continue reading on the next page how they had approached that.
