Canada's new drone rules include drunk droning ban

The federal government has adopted strict new regulations to govern the use of drones in Canadian airspace — prohibiting them from flying near airports and emergency scenes, and ensuring those operating them aren’t drunk or high on drugs.

    So much for my "Drink and Drone" nights….

    5 year old gets life in jail for piloting an unlicensed Kite

    it’s our space, next it will be a money grab. The lawsuits should come swiftly. Call your government reps and get bicycles to need a license to share the roads. These transportation rules are discriminatory to certain transportation areas do hobby boats need a license to use waterways? No Do Kite flyers need a license? Do kiteboarders? No how about bicycles as mentioned above driver need insurance and a double license, one for your car and one for your wallet. I’m not even sure that we benefit from recreational hang gliders? This Transportation Attitude is from fears of air travel and I want equality in all types of travel. Google is working on making personal air drones. Money from this sort of license should include rights ie personal aircraft need register flights over 5000 feet, the fair treatment of all transportation forms need to be reformed not just made up on fears and miss information

    Hey right on, more laws for tighter control of everything. Can somebody explain to me the relevance of the "Crown" in this country? Crown rules and laws?

  6. HaloInverse on July 15, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    A ban on drunk droning? There’s going to be some very angry bagpipe players.

  7. EclipseClemens on July 15, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    All drones over 249g must be registered? Alright, I’m slapping a helium-buoyant tank into it’s design. This is sad over-legislation meant to distract us from the marijuana monopoly betrayal of the canadian public and the RCMP being used as an enforcer gang on sovereign first nations who have the gall to not want to be poisoned on their own land.

  8. Peter Hall on July 15, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Do Terrorists need licenses

  9. Phillip on July 15, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Amazing this gov’t can get a law like this through but they can’t amend laws to stop the rich from hiding their money from the tax man.

  10. J C on July 15, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    How about self driving drones??

  11. caribbeansurvey supply on July 15, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Great video! Thanks a lot, if you allow me i would like to recommend this book @t
    it explores 101 ways in which drones can help us generate more income. I would also like to clarify, this isnt affiliate marketing (the link is directly from amazon). I just wanted to share this book with all the viewers, hope it helps you as much as it helped me

    what nonsense – the ‘drone’ at Gatwick was never confirmed – it was only ‘suspected’ – false news going after the hype $

  13. WildandLiving on July 15, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    So what about stoned drone with weed being legal?

  14. Johny Webb on July 15, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Amazon lobbyists making way for there drones only in our sky

  15. sar buck3 on July 15, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Well done Canada!

  16. Johny Webb on July 15, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Gatwick airport so-called drone Attacks was a false flag so it seems was Heathrow now as well ??

  17. Belle Jour on July 15, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    I can just see how this is going to work…All new drones sold will come with a breathalyzer to activate the power switch.

  18. Dennis Rochon on July 15, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Rules I get. Passing on line test is BS. I have a kite that flies higher than most 8 ounce drones.

  19. rex on July 15, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    omfg canada there is more important subjects

  20. Daniel Brown on July 15, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    All these new alcohol rules are to prepare the public for sharia law. This is so apparent to any keen observer it is almost childlike.

  21. ViveLaLiberté on July 15, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    Don’t take my drone away!

  22. Captain Canuck on July 15, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    Typical liberal reaction,more laws,more rules,massive bureaucracy etc.now you’ll know how gun owners feel.I bet this spring the liberals will introduce the same laws etc on kites.

  23. clint ellard on July 15, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Crazy rules

  24. Floyd DeBarber on July 15, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    Make Canada Free Again!

  25. Max Zomboni on July 15, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Better title: Mass drone hysteria continues. No evidence of any drone was found at Gatwick Airport. No drone operator was found. So these regulations are the result of a non event.

  26. Urban exploring on July 15, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Why lol

  27. Jimmy MacMillan on July 15, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Uh officer I’m the designated pilot

  28. Peter Hall on July 15, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    What if my Drone is over 25 Kg. Or my killerdrone under 250 grams? Only has 2 grams of C4 ( hypothetically speaking of course).

  29. Lucas Hu on July 15, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    DJI drone does not meet the safety standard, so no sense to get the Advanced operations certificate if you fly a dji…

  30. Ozbully Morales on July 15, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    This is great news… for kite manufacturers.

  31. The Great Canadian Weasel on July 15, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    I love how so many people don’t seem to understand why we would have laws about public endangerment, hampering airport operations or emergency situations. For example those drones at Gatwick are expected to cost the airport, airlines, and passengers tens of millions of pounds when it is all tallied up. I think the British handling of the situation was laughable at best. For once our government seems to be proactive on something (though I think it is all bluster and when push comes to shove they fold like a house of cards as usual)

  32. Canadian Trucker on July 15, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Hey Mark, don’t you need to practice more bending over for getting shafted by The Trump in the usmca agreement?

  33. TheJustonemore on July 15, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Air travel at 400 feet?

  34. Floyd DeBarber on July 15, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Drones are pollution.
    We need the UN to create a non binding agreement, that is made law, to protect us from drone pollution and to impose a global drone tax.

  35. r89 on July 15, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    regulate this regulate that, pathetic.

  36. Jammin Clemmons on July 15, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    * *Wake-up……before it’s too late!* * – There is wayyyyyyyy more to this story than you’re aware.
    We USA residents blame you filthy Canadian Bartenders!!! – You’re always smiling and talking.
    Then, as soon as we’re distracted, *BAM* you spike our drinks with Yukon Jack ! ! ! ! – We’ve never trusted you Canadian bartenders, always smiling and talking. – Load of maple syrup guzzling bastards and ice-slapping hockey hooligans. *THE WHOLE LOT OF YA!*

  37. 4Guess on July 15, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    More rights being take from us. Anyone who thinks we are free is sadly mistaken

  39. Philip Trepanier on July 15, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Well, there goes my chance to advance my photography skills. I was thinking of buying a drone for landscape photography.

  40. While You Were Sheeping on July 15, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    this is comedy gold, yes, send in the cops to arrest the drunk or high drone pilots, save us all.

  41. David Ellis on July 15, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    No drone zone !

  42. RedPill on July 15, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Just gotta suck the joy out of everything…

  43. Jeff Haayema on July 15, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Oh and let me guess only a small fee for this new licence we need .

  44. EL'EZRA on July 15, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    goodluck

  45. Judy Malley on July 15, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    So does that mean if a drone flies over my private property I can shoot it down???

  46. TheTechnoPilot on July 15, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Those that violate the law already are not going to apply with new laws, they break the law continuously already so that won’t change. While as a commercial pilot I whole heartedly support strick operator certificates, I also hate to see these laws hurting the RC Hobby with the unneeded age restrictions for recreational use, especially if conducted at a recognized RC field.

  47. mesedrew on July 15, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    I don’t understand what 250 g to 25 kg means, what is this in imperial?

  48. mwpahl38 on July 15, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    control.

  49. Barb D on July 15, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Sounds like these new rules are needed to make people safer.

  50. Greg Kral on July 15, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    why not keep the migrants out instead? Keep them from crossing the US/Canada border?
