That sounds like a great idea. Wish more would establish a fundamental understanding.

Did you already register your application? ;-)

What ever you said, please delete it, and rewrite it, in more common terms. ;-)

It'll be a sad day if they do. It said may have to register so its not defiant yet. Plus it would take a good year I reckon to but in place, the cost of setting it all up etc.

Again it down to a few individuals that will give us drone flyers a bad name.

Yep. We definitely see that over here in the U.S. as well. Because of problems caused by inexperienced or careless drone pilots, drones are prohibited in the National Parks over here, even for professionals working for movie studios or the like. According to the NPS page, the only UAVs allowed in the National Parks are those in use by emergency services and specific conservation efforts.

State Park rules vary by State. In Arizona, hobbyist drones are not allowed. Professional drones are allowed on a permit basis.

We have to register with the FAA, because of too many problems of people flying drones in the approach and takeoff corridors of airports, creating a potential collision hazard. Per FAA rules now, if we want to fly anywhere within a 5 mile radius of any airport (including helipads at hospitals and the like), we must coordinate with air traffic control of said airport.

A few foolish people, and we end up with strict regulations on everyone.

I was talking to Rigworker, a forum friend earlier today. From what he mentioned to me:
We 'may' eventually need some form of drone liability insurance in Canada but registration will likely be mandatory.
Then, once you have that certificate, your membership ID will need to be placed in a readable place on your drone.

So no longer will people just be showing up, to your "Home Point" to share criticism.
Now they will simply record your visible drone number and call it in, for the infraction.
Will there be Drone Police? Ha

A good idea in theory but it would probably have to extend to anyone who purchases a remotely operated aircraft, so that's all the heli/plank flyers, the quad (NOT drone!) racing guys, the fpv flyers, the slope soarers etc.  A lot of these flyers might already have BMFA qualifications so that should cover them automatically.
