In our nineteenth episode of Unsolved Canadian Mysteries, Kenton de Jong and Dylan Fairman discuss The Bell Island Boom.
Right before noon on Sunday, April 2, 1978, a massive explosion rocked a small mining island in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Bickford family farm had exploded. Within days, military officials from Canada, Russia, and the USSR descended onto the island to investigate. Also spotted were two “men in black” from Los Alamos National Laboratory.
What exploded that day in Bell Island? Does it have anything to do with the island being the most haunted island in Canada? Or does it have to do with the mining? Or maybe the mysterious sky quakes happened a few months prior? Come listen and find out!
