Im signing this because these laws conflict with the freedom that goes along with living in Canada. This isn’t safety, this is a sense of achievement via undue control. This isn’t Canadian. These laws would be different if safety and privacy were the only concerns. Getting an SFOC is made near impossible for a reason, to deter most qualified pilots from getting one. It’s unreasonable and takes away my faith in a responsible government.
We should be like Australia when it comes to drone laws! Our scenery is just as beautiful but our laws are 10x less reasonable. Individuals who violate laws like those Australia has put in place should be individually reprimanded. Don't punish the majority because of the ill thought out actions of a minority.
TC is out for money not safety, attaching a price tag to drone/quad flying does not make them safe!!! Hell there has been 0 deaths as result to these. What about bikes, they kill people all the time yet no insurance on that?
