What could possibly go wrong?
The public funds development of the drones for military use. Then the military industrial complex allows big cooperations to use them. Sweet deal. This will make it so much easier and I hardly see any potential for abuse. Do you?
Some oil and gas companies claim that these unmanned aircraft would be useful for detecting leaks in pipelines.
However, according to the General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, Nathalie Des Rosiers, increasing the number of drones could bully the right to privacy as they also act as monitoring devices.
“Whenever technology allows greater use of monitoring instruments, decreases the way we can control that authorities do with the information,” she said.
