If you are witness of a non regulatory use of a drone you can report it to TC.

Thanks, Bertrand.

I have mixed feelings. 

If TC wants us acting as informants, they have an obligation to meet us halfway, with some indication of flexibility and reasonableness toward those making every effort to act responsibly and conscientiously.

Overall, that's not the sense I'm getting of the current direction of things.

If not about being informant. Just wait the day when you are operating by the law and a moron come and interfere with your operation just for the fun to waste your time, money, .....

The new rules are coming and I think they are quite good for us with the registration, the UAS compliance and the pilot training.

Last month TC, the DoJ and some representative of the drone community meet. I don't know what is the result but I just hope it will be a more aggressive action against those guy who flow without regards to the law.

I deal with this regularly, Bertrand. And it's a good part of the reason I get angry when TC's response is to slap ever-more and ever-tighter regulations on - wait for it - me, and you (not them - because they don't know or care about rules and regulations).

I can't say too much here, as they aren't out yet. But all the early indications that are out are - more, and tighter rules, for the people who don't need more and tighter rules (because they're already following all the perfectly adequate existing rules).

I agree with George here.  Transport Canada seems to only want to deal with large operators who can have a dedicated bureaucracy department.  Small operators are not who they are helping in any way since they feel safety is determined with paperwork.  Frustrating that they have no impetuous to encourage economic development.  Somehow they think they will be successful in binding UAV use the same way they have hog tied manned aviation.  I'm wondering more and more if I'm the fool trying to stay within the law.  I've made my choice to stay on the straight and narrow, but it's a stupid situation we're in as Canadian Small UAV operators.  A situation of TC's creation.
