Santa is Canadian!

The National Post has written an article with some little-known facts about Santa Claus and his role with respect to the Canadian government:
- Santa is a Canadian citizen, according to Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney.
- Santa's workshop is GST exempt.
- Because the North Pole is part of Canadian territory, Santa doesn't need to go through border clearance when he travels to deliver gifts.

No comment on whether Santa has to pay landing fees - or in BC, whether he needs to pay the carbon tax.
