Earlier Coverage:

Jamie Lyle from affiliate BayToday.ca reports:

Approximately 10 radar hits have confirmed what many suspected for Christmas Eve; that Santa Claus is indeed in the air and making his annual visit to good boys and girls across Canada.

The Canadian North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has issued a statement this evening regarding their systems tracking an unidentified intruder flying into Canadian airspace and originating out of the North Pole.

A media advisory went out by the Royal Canadian Air Force, saying that two CF-18 aerial escort pilots have been scrambled to welcome what appears to be the jolly old man himself into Canada's East Coast.

Military sources are also able to establish the identify Santa Claus by special voice recognition technology as he is heard to be heartily chuckling “HO HO HO!” and yelling “MERRRY Christmas!”

“If that's not Santa Claus, well then, I don't know who is,” says Lieutenant-Colonel Darcy Molstead of 425 Tactical Fighter Squadron, 3 Wing, Bagotville, Quebec.

“Confirmed, it is Santa Claus” replies Captain Sebastien Gorelov, also from 3 Wing, who adds that “kids who reside in Eastern Canada should get to sleep A.S.A.P.”

Teams are often rotated and this year, the honour of flying with Santa goes to “Charlie” Flight of 21 Aerospace Control & Warning Squadron.

Captain Ali M. Ullah, Senior Director at the Canadian Air Defence Sector, 22 Wing North Bay, says that it is well known that Santa is happy to be met by his military escorts, whom he often waves to and exchanges greetings with as he speeds across Canadian Airspace.

Captain Ullah says that Santa, who travels in his own time-space continuum, likes to slow down enough to meet the supersonic jets that escort him and rock their wings to greet him on his merry way as he delivers presents to children on Christmas Eve across Canada and North America.

All parents and children alike can receive updates on Santa's journey by visiting www.noradsanta.org or by calling the hotline 1-877-446-6723 to get the latest updates on Santa's progress on delivering toys to all the good girls and boys.

If you believe in God then you must believe in Santa. They go hand in hand.
