Now Canada Closes Airspace Over Lake Huron Due to “Active Air Defense Operation”; Rep. Elissa Slotkin: Pentagon Confirms Tracking Object

Things are getting sporty over the Great Lakes this Sunday. First it was the FAA closing airspace over Lake Michigan while military planes conducted a patrol, now Canada has closed airspace over Lake Huron due to an “active air defense operation” somewhere over Tobermory, Ontario.

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister ordered a NORAD shootdown by a U.S. F-22 of a high altitude object over the Yukon. Later Saturday the U.S. shut down airspace over Montana for an object that was not found by patrolling aircraft. The U.S. shot down an object over Alaska on Friday and shot down a China spy balloon a week ago Saturday off the coast of South Carolina. Earlier Sunday the U.S. shut down airspace over Lake Michigan for a short while but so far no reports on whether any object was found.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), “Just got a call from @DeptofDefense — our military has an extremely close eye on the object above Lake Huron. We’ll know more about what this was in the coming days, but for now, be assured that all parties have been laser-focused on it from the moment it traversed our waters.”

Note: Corrected misspelling of Rep. Slotkin’s first name in headline and article. Apologies.
