Armed drones coming to Canadian military

Armed drones are the way of the future for Canada’s military, but there need to be conversations about how they are used before they are deployed, says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

    Canada must be on the fore front of weapons technology. This is good for Canada and what is good for Canada is good for the world

    This is the epitome of cowardly warfare and this technology will eventually be used against dissidents in Canada, mark my words.

    It’s high time the Canadian military got armed drones. Once the same oversight is applied to their use as is applied to manned air combat missions then they’ll be an effective platform.

    the liberal government is kowtowing to the minuscule defense industry, yet it is going to end up costing them seats to the much more sensible ndp/green party coalition. this country is not conservative, and the liberals have failed to realize the nature of their mandate following harper. many significant issues have been abysmal, and no amount of strategic voting is going to convince me they are acting any different from the problematic right-leaning political movements this country and other countries face today. trudeau has failed indigenous canada, the environmentally contemporary left, and the pot voter, just to name a few… and by not modernizing their politics in these areas, they are doing the word liberal a tremendous disservice amidst an already chaotic sojourn across the stormy water.

    now were war criminals? drones should be illegal. 90% of deaths by drones are civilians

    albedo management cloud whitening is the real story. man made climate manipulation for evil agendas

    This requisition will take longer than the Fighter Jet program… change my mind

    By the time Canada gets military drones, the technology will be outdated. But maybe we can fob them off on Britain, with kind regards, for selling us those crap submarines.

    We’re not going to use drones for those purposes but when we do we will talk about it fulsomely. That’s reassuring.

    Let’s face it, equal opportunity warfare has gone extinct in most western countries. The west has technology to keep soldiers and operators from becoming endangered by the targets they attack, while the targets are trying to gain the technology to implement against these threats, but often failing to do so. That said, where is the honor in attacking on an equal footing when the targets often attack civilians in a cowardly manner through a campaign of terror and unprecedented villainy. However, there needs to be a more open book policy on how drones are used and implemented in military operations, as well as more transparency on any possible civilian deaths and casualties.

  16. Dolphus Raymond on September 8, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I really can’t support drones. Its too dangerous, we have to make a law restraining their use.

  17. MooseLips on September 8, 2021 at 11:51 pm

  21. D Hokanson on September 8, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    To spy on the conservatives no doubt.

  22. Dan Bee on September 9, 2021 at 12:01 am

    There must be a way of delivering a flash bang or paralyzing affect with the intent of due process.

  23. sweiland75 on September 9, 2021 at 12:02 am

    How bout we abolish our military. Let’s see what happens. I guarantee most Canadians won’t like it. As the invasion begins, they will still be screaming that having a military is some American conspiracy. Whatever the reason for threats to Canada, we need to be prepared or we lose our sovereignty. Who is willing to take that risk?
