Vapour trails have Kelowna man seeing a conspiracy

On Thursday morning, Sebastien Latour looked up to the Kelowna skyline and didn’t see a cloud in sight. “The sky was clear as a bell,” Latour said.

Vapour trails from aircraft criss-crossing the Kelowna sky has raised concerns for at least one Kelowna resident that he says nobody is willing to answer.

On Thursday morning, Sebastien Latour looked up to the Kelowna skyline and didn’t see a cloud in sight. “The sky was clear as a bell,” Latour said.

But by 11:50 that morning, the Black Mountain resident had made calls to the Kelowna airport, federal offices that deal with dangerous goods and NAV Canada to find out why there had already been 42 high-altitude flights over the Central Okanagan within a few hours.

The once clear blue sky was almost entirely covered with a thin screen of clouds from vapour trails that would not dissipate. The white traces spread across the autumn sky like milk over linoleum.

“I’ve been trying to find out for years what’s going on and I keep getting shoved into corners,” Latour said.

He suspects the flights are military planes spreading a chemical cocktail into the atmosphere. And he thinks it has something to do with global climate change.

Latour has studied a documentary that can be found on YouTube called What In the World Are they Spraying?

It suggests the flights are used to control weather, spreading chemical-laden ‘chemtrails.’ The idea is that the U.S. is spreading the cloud-creating chemicals to deflect the sun’s rays.

The film documents people who say it’s an aerosol spray of very fine pieces of aluminum, and perhaps other chemicals like barium and strontium being sprayed into the atmosphere.

Governments call those who ask questions conspiracy theorists.
