The TSB says an incident with a "risk of mid-air collision" happened before 7:30 a.m. ET and involved flight POE204 travelling from Ottawa to Toronto's downtown Billy Bishop Airport.

In a statement issued Monday afternoon, Porter said the event happened over Lake Ontario near Pickering, Ont., as the plane approached the airport from the east while flying at a height of about 9,000 feet. The statement said pilots noticed an object in the distance, which they originally thought was a balloon.

"As they approached the object, they realized it was very close to their flight path and decided to take appropriate evasive action," reads Porter's statement. "There was no contact between the aircraft and object."

"After debriefing, there is potential that the object was a drone," the statement says.

Porter says two flight attendants sustained minor injuries. They were taken to hospital and released. There were no reported injuries to the 54 passengers on board.

The airline says it's working with the Transportation Safety Board's investigation.

"It's imperative that we keep our skies safe and secure," Young told reporters on Parliament Hill.

"Drones can be dangerous if they get too close to aircraft."

Young said the government is working as quickly as it can to pass new legislation governing how drones can be used, especially as more Canadians begin flying them. Some potential changes, according to Transportation Safety Board documents obtained by CBC News, include requiring drone owners to register their devices, pass a knowledge test and pay for liability insurance.

I didn't think consumer drones could fly that high. So this really could be something military or the more likely possibility: ALIENS!

Drones max ceiling height is electronically limited.

They range in max ceiling heights ranging from 50 meters to 1000 meters 12 High Altitude Drone 2016 - How High Can A Drone Fly?

The DJI Mavic Pro claims a 5000m max ceiling height above sea level. - Mavic – Specs, FAQ, Tutorials and Downloads

Sooooo its not that consumer drones cant fly that high, they are just apparently limited to not be allowed.

Don't they also have a limited radio range? I thought I read somewhere that was like 2 miles as the intention is that the operator would always want to be within line of sight. And I may be wrong but I think drones either fall to the earth or automatically come back into radio range.

It just seems that 9,000 feet is no ordinary drone.

I stand by Aliens conclusion.

Or Iron Man.

Most radio ranges of the drones i was looking into purchasing were 4-7km as you can fly the drone via the camera on a mobile gimbal that is displayed on your phone/device that is paired with the drone/radio controller.

They're all controlled by:
a) George Soros
b) The Koch Brothers
c) The Illuminati

You just think you're controlling the drones. That's what they want you to think.
