Drone hunting season now open in Vancouver

Evidently, Drone hunting season is now open in Vancouver. The Vancouver Province ran an article about someone in Vancouver spotting a peeping Tom drone outside his condo at night. CTV ran a video. That is illegal. It's not just the government spying on civilians. Now it's any idiot who wants to be a peeping Tom. Any Radioshack geek on the planet.

In Colorado they talked about issuing hunting licenses and offering rewards for every government drone shot down. Now the hunting season has now opened in Vancouver. Discharging firearms in the city might violate local bylaws but you can shoot them with paintball guns, throw string into their propellers of swat it out of the air with a stick if it comes within reach of your condo.

You can also take a picture of it and sue the company that rents them along with the BC Civil Liberties Union. The guys with the real estate drones claim they apply to Transport Canada every time they fly theirs. Somehow I don't think the hobbie drones do that.


  1. I agree with the intent but I would be concerned about a plummeting drone hitting some one on the ground.

  2. They are pretty small and light. Catching one with a fly fishing rod would solve that.
