New Drone Rules will be like New Gun Rules....

the illegal alleged perpetrators, of both or either, don't follow rules.

I follow the drone rules, that is why you don't see my drone videos.

all the best to the powers be!

Those who actually follow the rules should be P/O at the one who cause the need for this rule change.
All it takes is few as :cuss: holes to change it for everyone i.e flying in restricted air space (forest fires & near airports)

When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

The officials said the new rules for drone use in Canada will include restrictions on their use within nine kilometres of airports. The three officials were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the new rules before they were formally announced in the Canada Gazette.

One of the biggest associations of drone operators in the country, Unmanned Systems Canada (USC), has been working with the government to develop the new rules for nearly a decade.

Here is a post by Model Aeronautics Association of Canada about this.

Model Aeronautics Association of Canada

To all MAAC Members,

Re: Transport Canada Gazette II news release of January 10, 2019

We would like to advise you that the anticipated new regulations for Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS ) have now been published. However, it should be clearly understood that nothing has changed for MAAC members and even though the regulations have now been published, they do not take effect until 1st June 2019. Until that date the Interim Order Respecting the use of Model Aircraft remains in effect, and as this order does not apply to MAAC operations, MAAC members can continue to operate as we always have.

Once the new regulations do come into effect, they will apply to all aircraft without a pilot onboard, whether for recreational or non-recreational purposes. However, be assured that MAAC continues to working with Transport Canada to ensure your current privileges are protected. As we advised you in the last email update, MAAC is working with Transport Canada on an exemption from the new regulations. With this exemption, once the new regulations do come into effect, MAAC members will enjoy the same freedoms they always have. It is expected that the MAAC exemption will be approved well before the new regulations come into effect on 1st June 2019. In the meantime please see the attached letter from Transport Canada, Letter – AARV – MAAC 2019 – 01-09 showing their commitment to these ongoing efforts and the preservation of our privileges.

MAAC leadership continues to work for its members and to ensure that we can all enjoy our passion of operating model aircraft. We will provide additional updates, once we have secured the exemption. Until then, please let me repeat that nothing has changed for MAAC members and you can continue to operate as you always have.

On behalf of the MAAC transport Canada Advisory Group

Peter Schaffer

President - MAAC

MAAC has been excluded from general rules for quite a while

Why, because they are well organized, insured and have very good rules to protect full sized aircraft. I would highly recommend joining.

The only real rule that will apply to MAAC members is the updated labelling rules.

The exemption should be in place prior to the new rules taking place so it's all good.

FYI, the title should be new unmanned aircraft rules. Drones, RC planes, RC sailplanes, and RC Helis are all subject to the rules.

Further FYI, You can get private property approved as a MAAC site and benefit that way.
