Saturday, December 24, 2016 @ 6:41 AM


Prince George, B.C- Once again  NORAD is keeping rack of Santa’s progress  around the world.    Tracking started  3 this morning  and can be followed on the  video above.

This is the 61st year  that NORAD had  kept tabs on Santa’s progress and will see  Canadian  escorts from 3 Wing Bagotville, Quebec, and  from 4 Wing Cold Lake Alberta  when  he enters Canadian Air Space.

“The responsibility of keeping watchful eyes over North American airspace 24/7 rests with our men and women of the Canadian NORAD Region,” said Major-General Christian Drouin, the commander of 1 Canadian Air Division/Canadian NORAD Region. “It is a duty and honour we hold dearly: to ensure Santa’s safe passage through North America so he can deliver joy and goodwill this holiday season.”


This year CANR dedicates this mission to the memory of Captain Thomas McQueen, who escorted Santa in 2014.
