I am from Canada. I see no need for them, either. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not that smart. His father, former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau I assume would be rolling in his grave, by this.
I am from Canada, and I am against these drones!
I think the drones themself are a great "capability" to have. They can do things a piloted plane cannot do, and there is no risk to a pilot. (Except his job)
I do have concerns from the previous administartion about how drone technology is used in THIS country and potentially, against US citizens. I believe armed drones should never be allowed in the hands of any agency other than the DoD. I also don;t think miliary drones should ever be allowed to fly outside of military bases unless patrolling/protecting our borders.
