Ask the Councillor: What are the rules on drones?

Region PhotoResident D.Z. asks:

Are there any rules governing the use of drones within city limits?

Answer:

Drones fall under federal regulation. Rules are applied based on recreational or business use, as well as the weight of the drone. See this link for more information – Drone Guidelines

Concerns about the safe operation of drones should be report to Transport Canada at services@tc.gc.ca.

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
