How could Transport Canada improve droning? DPAC presents at a TC Innovation Centre event

I was invited to present at the Transport Canada Innovation Centre Lecture Series on Oct 18, 2022. The topic: How can Transport Canada do drones better? In this video, I will share the presentation I made on behalf of the Drone Pilot Association of Canada (DPAC), and some of the discussion and Q&A that took place afterwards. Other presenters at the event were Richard Borger of Mohawk College and Jason Dudek of Sky Canoe.
