Nova Sco­tia group urges gov­ern­ment to spec­ify ban on drone use by hun­ters

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

HAL­I­FAX — The pres­i­dent of the Nova Sco­tia Fed­er­a­tion of An­glers and Hun­ters says some peo­ple are tak­ing the hunt out of hunt­ing with the use of drones and he wants leg­is­la­tion to keep them grounded.

Ian Avery says his group adopted a pol­icy against drones for hunt­ing three years ago but hasn’t been able to con­vince the prov­ince to up­date its leg­is­la­tion.

He says while the Nova Sco­tia gov­ern­ment says the cur­rent leg­is­la­tion has enough teeth, he be­lieves the word­ing should be more spe­cific than just a ban on us­ing an “aerial ve­hi­cle” while hunt­ing.
