Immigration Minister Kenny Declares Santa Claus a Canadian Citizen

Santa is a Canadian Citizen

While Canada, Denmark, Norway, Russia and the United States have all laid claim to the North Pole,  Canada’s Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason Kenney, yesterday officially designated the legendary Christmas gift-giver  as a Canadian citizen, with air rights to fly over the country at any time.

“The Government of Canada wishes Santa the very best in his Christmas Eve duties and wants to let him know that, as a Canadian citizen, he has the automatic right to re-enter Canada once his trip around the world is complete,” Kenney’s statement said.

Arguments that Santa Claus is more Canadian than any other nationality include that the colors of Santa’s robes resemble the Canada’s red and white flag and that postal code readers all over the world recognize H0H 0H0 as belonging to Canada. In fact in 2007, Canada Post helped deliver more than 1.2 million letters to Santa from over the world in languages ranging from Albanian to Vietnamese.
