Someone flew a drone over Yonge-Dundas Square last night (VIDEO)

Turns out there was a Raptors game on last night.

And after the team took down defending champs the Golden State Warriors to claim their first-ever NBA championship, the city of Toronto had something to say about it.

Tens of thousands gathered on the streets to celebrate the Raptors’ victory, with Yonge-Dundas Square and its surrounding roads acting as the epicentre of after-partying.

And amidst the chaos (and brief episodes of stupidity), at least one person decided to throw legality to the wind by flying a drone over the Square to capture the madness taking place.

To be clear, it is illegal to fly a drone within any downtown area in Canada, as outlined by Transport Minister Marc Garneau in 2017when the country’s first intensive drone regulations were introduced and included the following stipulations:

No one may fly a drone “higher that 90 metres, at night time, within 75 metres of buildings, vehicles, or people, or within nine kilometres of any airport, heliport, seaplane base or airstrip where aircraft take off or land.”

Fines for operating a drone for recreational use can result in fines of up to $3,000.

Was capturing this footage worth it? Only time (and fines) will tell.
