The memorandum of understanding was delivered to Mr Trudeau in February, just days before the end of the search for mysterious phenomena in the sky – known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) –.
Secret documents reveal that the flying object shot down by the US military over Yukon (Canada) was the 23rd UAP tracked in North America in a few weeks in early 2023.
On February 11, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that a US F-22 fighter jet shot down an unidentified object in the Canadian sky. Mr Trudeau then announced the shooting on Twitter and said the incident occurred in the Yukon Territory of northern Canada.
He said the Canadian military will recover and analyze the object’s debris. However, Canada later abandoned the search due to weather difficulties and remote location.

Sheet daily Mail A recently reported February 15 memo collected and carefully edited by CTV News (Canada) revealed that top officials in Mr. Trudeau’s government admitted being confused by the incident. Work on 11th February.
The Trudeau government now acknowledges that while many UAPs are considered harmless, many details of “Object 23” remain unverified.
“The North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) numbers the objects each year for ease of tracking. After cross-checking, the majority of objects were found to be harmless,” the memo said. As far as this matter is concerned, the memo said that Canadian intelligence has not been able to clarify what UFO No. 23 could be.
The incident occurred on February 11 when the United States was on high alert after a Chinese hot air balloon flew into the country’s airspace. The US shot down a Chinese hot air balloon off the coast of South Carolina on February 4.
Due to the hot air balloon incident, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken had to postpone his visit to China at that time. As far as China is concerned, the country’s Foreign Ministry confirmed that the air balloon had reconnaissance functions and was just a civilian weather balloon.

Following the February 11 incident, other flying objects were also shot down in the ocean in the state of Montana and off the coast of the US state of Alaska between February 10 and 13.
US President Joe Biden said on February 16 that the three objects posed no threat to the public. At the time, Mr Biden confirmed that “there is nothing to suggest that the UFOs are related to China’s spy balloon program or that they are surveillance vehicles of any other country.”
He added, “The intelligence community assesses that these three objects are likely balloons associated with private companies, entertainment organizations, weather research, or scientific research.”
However, while American intelligence downplayed the significance of the aforementioned UFOs, Canadian officials called for analysis of the debris before making any assessments.
