The deputy commander of Norad says a suspected Chinese spy balloon passed through "radar gaps" during its flight over Canada.
Lt.-Gen. Alain Pelletier says that it affected the military's ability to track its flight path as it flew over central British Columbia.
Pelletier and Maj.-Gen. Paul Prevost of the Canadian Armed Forces strategic joint staff are appearing before a parliamentary committee this morning.
The two say the Chinese balloon passed near several Canadian military bases during its journey through Canada on January 30-31.
But they say the balloon did not pass over anything of particular significance before it re-entered the United States and was shot down off the coast of South Carolina on February 4.
Pelletier says they won't know exactly what the balloon was capable of until it can be analyzed.
