On Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 1 PM ET, World BEYOND War co-hosted and participated in a panel and Q&A on Canada’s proposed armed drone purchase. The Canadian military is currently picking a contender for up to 5 billion CAD worth of armed drones. Participants joined experts in the field to learn & speak out against the government’s attempt to purchase and deploy a fleet of armed drones under our noses. #NoArmedDrones.
