I'm sort of intense when it comes to my wife and kids though.

I like Turtles.

But tell us how you really feel, Josh...no need to be shy...

Out of curiosity, I went to the Transport Canada website to see if anything about Canadian regulations was up.

In typically Canadian fashion, the government calls on common sense and good judgment.

Quote:
If your aircraft weighs less than 35 kg and is used for recreational purposes, you don’t need permission to fly, but please read and follow our safety guidelines.


When you link to the safety guidelines, you get

(I was unable to preserve the two-column format.)

Quote:
Do
    Fly your aircraft during daylight and in good weather (not in clouds or fog).

    Keep your aircraft in sight, where you can see it with your own eyes – not only through an on-board camera, monitor or smartphone.

    Make sure your aircraft is safe for flight before take-off. Ask yourself, for example, are the batteries fully charged? Is it too cold to fly?

    Know if you need permission to fly and when to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate

    Respect the privacy of others – avoid flying over private property or taking photos or videos without permission.


Don't fly:

    Closer than 9 km from any airport, heliport, or aerodrome.

    Higher than 90 metres from above the ground.

    Closer than 150 metres from people, animals, buildings, structures, or vehicles.

    In populated areas or near large groups of people, including sporting events, concerts, festivals, and firework shows.

    Near moving vehicles, avoid highways, bridges, busy streets or anywhere you could endanger or distract drivers.

    Within restricted airspace, including near or over military bases, prisons, and forest fires.

    Anywhere you may interfere with first responders.


Hmmm.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

On top of which they measure everything in meters - meters! for goodness sake! - which is no doubt designed to confound and confuse the drone pilots and authorities alike.

It's metres. We're ok with metres. If it was meters all hell would break loose!
