CRD approves Clean Air Bylaw Amendment

The Capital Regional District (CRD) Board has approved an amendment to Clean Air Bylaw. 

The amendment allows the bylaw to include burning or vaping of any substances, including cannabis, in any public space as identified in the existing bylaw, which includes: playing fields, playgrounds, and public squares.  

Municipal fines may be issued by Island Health Enforcement officers for observed violation of the bylaw.  

The CRD will now be taking the amendment to the provincial government for its approval.
