Classified Canadian Memo: “We DEFINITELY Shot Down A UFO, Eh.”

Sep 6, 2023

Fucken Eh.

It’s not feasible to assume that we’re alone in a galaxy with a billion planets and stars. FYI. If yu think that, you’re religious or dumb.

CTV: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was provided a classified memo on the subject of “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)” in February, CTV News has learned.

Obtained through a freedom of information request, the heavily redacted document offers a glimpse into how the Canadian government responded to the unidentified object that was detected and shot down over northern Canada’s Yukon territory on Feb. 11. According to the “Secret” memo, the Yukon object was the 23rd so-called “UAP” tracked over North America in the first few weeks of 2023.”NORAD numbers objects on a sequential basis, per year, to track every detected object that is not immediately identified; upon cross-examination most objects are found to be innocuous and do not meet the threshold for higher reporting or engagement,” the memo explained. “Object #23’s function, method of propulsion, or affiliation to any nation-state remains unverified.”

After decades of denial and dismissal by U.S. authorities, the PentagonNASA and American lawmakers are now investigating what they call “unidentified anomalous phenomena” or “UAP” – official terms for what are more commonly known as “unidentified flying objects” and “UFOs.”

“UAP #23” was one of three unidentified objects shot down by fighter jets over North America earlier this year, immediately following the Feb. 4 downing of a suspected Chinese spy balloon. While the three objects have not been publicly identified, all were reportedly much smaller than the 200-foot-tall apparent Chinese surveillance device.On Feb. 16, U.S. President Joe Biden said the three mysterious objects likely no posed no threat and were probably private or research balloons.

Transmitted on Feb. 14, the “Memorandum for the Prime Minister” was classified “Secret” and for “limited distribution.” It was CC’d to Trudeau’s national security advisor, Jody Thomas, and signed by Janice Charette, who then served as the powerful clerk of the Privy Council.

Canada’s Privy Council Office, or PCO, is a centralized hub that directs the country’s public service and is responsible for providing non-partisan support to the prime minister and cabinet as they make policy decisions.

Detected on the afternoon of Feb. 11, the Yukon object was shot down the same day by a U.S. F-22 fighter jet. At the time officials described it as a “suspected balloon” that was “cylindrical” in shape.

“NORAD Canadian CF-18 Hornets had been scrambled but the F-22s were better located based on time, space, and fading light,” the memo stated. “As additional UAP are detected, we will continue to keep you apprised.”

Due to harsh winter conditions and the remote mountainous terrain, efforts to recover debris from the Yukon object were called off on Feb. 17.

“It is unknown whether it poses an armed threat or has intelligence collection capabilities,” the memo added. “The area in which the impact occurred is a known (caribou) migration route, which opens the possibility of future accidental discovery by Indigenous hunters.”

Extensive redactions were made to the memo under sections 15 and 69 of Canada’s Access to Information Act, which pertain to national security and cabinet confidentiality.

The declassified document was provided to by a civilian researcher who wished to remain anonymous. verified the document’s authenticity by filing a new information request with the Privy Council Office. The PCO and Prime Minister’s Office did not respond to requests for comment.

In a statement to, Canada’s Department of National Defence would not disclose how many other unidentified objects have been detected over North America since the flurry of February incidents.

“Following the identification of the larger high-altitude surveillance balloon, NORAD adjusted our detection capabilities to give us better fidelity on seeing smaller, slower objects at various altitudes,” a Canadian defence spokesperson said. “Each event is unique and NORAD’s response is determined on a case-by-case basis.”

Iain Boyd, a professor of aerospace engineering and director of the Center for National Security Initiatives at the University of Colorado, says the memo shows how Canadian and U.S. elements of Norad effectively work together “without regards to national boundaries.”

“It also appears to indicate a low level of understanding of the object in terms of its capabilities and function,” Boyd added. “Under normal circumstances, you’d like to think that the decision to shoot it down would only be made after a thorough assessment had been made of the danger it posed based on all information available.”

Alright. So, we are not alone. I get that. But are the brains of 20-30 percent of us too small to deal with the idea that Aliens exist or that we are not the only species in a galaxy of billions of planets like ours?

Just tell us. We get it. Well, most of us who don’t believe in a magical sky daddy get it.

The report said they might be unable to recover the wreckage due to indigenous hunters and Cariboo trails. It also says, “It’s way too snowy up there to do anything, heads up for hunters and the freezing Yukon cold” to prevent any thrill seekers from taking a peek at the UFO WE SHOT DOWN.

I’m not an Alien hunter, but I get math and know the universe is a prominent place. I’m WIDE open to the idea we have interstellar travelers popping in and out of Earth’s atmosphere like a brothel. We put a rover on Mars, and we’re Neanderthals. The universe is billions of years old, so it’s entirely possible SOME alien species in a galaxy of billions of planets had a billion-year head start. You know, with magnets and shit.

Just tell us. I want to see religious lunatics’ heads explode. Please.
