Series of bright streaks in the sky near air force base

I was driving Southbound on Highway 11 between Orillia and Barrie Ontario around 10:15 PM on Friday December 4, 2015. As I was descending into a stretch known locally as "Gasoline Alley" I noticed a streak of light in the sky to the left. It was a long thin line of bright white light that seemed to start somewhere over or near Barrie and move North East towards Orillia. It reminded me of the Enterprise (Star Trek) going from full stop to warp speed and then disappearing. Seconds later there were 2-3 (possibly more) streaks doing exactly the same thing, like a fleet of ships.

I realize these may have been meteors, but I've seen meteors before and these streaks seemed different to me. There was no ball of light at the head or streaking behind it. It was a perfect pencil thin white line.

Also, CFB Border (air force base) is very close to this area. When I looked at a map I realized that if a ship had been hovering above the base and then shot off North East, it would have gone parallel to Highway 11 to my left exactly as I had seen.
