objects shot down over Canada and Alaska were balloons

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Sunday that a search was underway for the wreckage of a flying object shot down the day before by a US fighter jet over Canada’s Yukon Territory. At the same time, authorities in Canada and the United States are coordinating their actions.

“Collection teams (from the wreckage) are on site trying to find and analyze the object,” Trudeau told reporters.

Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told ABC that U.S. officials believe the object shot down over Canada on Saturday and another flying object shot down Friday near Deadhorse, Alaska, were Balloons.

Schumer added that the objects were much smaller than the first balloon that drifted over US airspace and was shot down over South Carolina last Saturday.

According to Schumer, US officials are studying what these facilities are and what threat they pose.

“You can be sure that if American interests or people are threatened, appropriate action will be taken,” he said.
